My Word and I was started by entrepreneur and author Catherine Bouhet Walker in 2012. The company has created and developed high quality award-winning personalised children’s story books which can be personalised in just a few minutes.
The stories see the children become the heroes of their own adventure which they can share with their friends and family. The books have been designed to develop a love for reading in children from an early age through the colourful and high quality artwork and a fun and engaging storytelling style. They have been developed with the input of children, schools, speech therapists, psychologies and childhood experts to make sure the child gets as much from the book as possible.
Catherine started My World and I to create storybooks that encouraged children to learn to read, have fun, share special moments with their parents and also to help develop their self esteem through recognising themselves in the story. She is a single mother of two children and used her own experiences and knowledge to help create something that would enhance a child’s learning. Now My World and I sells thousands of storybooks every month, and the company has distributors based in 24 countries across the world.
