Personalized Bilingual Books For Kids – The Little Boy And The Dolphin

Does your child love being the star of the story? The little boy and the dolphin is a brand new multicultural, bilingual book for kids personalized with their name! My kids love personalized books because they love reading about themselves, but this personalized book is even better because it comes in bilingual. This means my boys are able to enjoy the story in more than one language.

We were sent two copies of the recently published bilingual book from Tim Tim Tom. We chose the English-Spanish version for my five year old who speaks Spanish quite well now, and the English-Italian version for my toddler. There are also many other language combinations to choose from including French, Chinese, Dutch, and German.

I love how the title of the book includes your child’s name, and you have the option of having their name written differently according to the languages you choose. So if you have a daughter called Sophie, in English it will be “Sophie and the Dolphin” in English and then in Italian “Sofia e il Delfino”. Your little boy or girl will love being the star of the story.


The Story of  The Little Boy and The Dolphin

This personalized bilingual book follows your child on an underwater adventure with a dolphin to save a sea turtle who is stuck in a net at the bottom of the ocean. Meeting all sorts of sea creatures along the way, your child becomes the hero and saves the day!

On one side of the page you can read language one, and on the other page you read language two. So which ever language parents speak, bedtime stories are made easy! It is also quite good for children learning to read as they can see the translation. (And good for parents learning their partner’s language!)


A Multicultural Kids Book

One fantastic and unique thing about this particular personalized book is that you can really make the character like your child which ever your cultural background. You can choose  a girl or a boy, and the color of their skin from the different shades available. You can then choose the eye shape and color and various different hair styles and colours. Whichever your child’s background, there is an option to make the character represent them.


Ordering Your Personalized Bilingual Book

To order your copy of this exciting personalized bilingual book, head to TimTimTom where you can create your book and view it before ordering.

Fill out the various options. Choose your two languages and insert your child’s name. Choose the look of your child, from skin colour to hair style and colour so it really looks like them in the story. Once you are done, add a personalized message and view your book, easy as that!

The book itself has a hard cover so is great for little ones. The illustrations are bright, colourful and engaging the whole way through.
