First day at school gift ideas: Personalized picture books

If you want to surprise the child with a unique gift for the start of school, Librio’s picture books could be the perfect solution. In these books, each personalized child becomes the main character of the story. With the online configurator you can choose the name and appearance of the main character and send a child of your choice on an exciting adventure.


The personalized books are beautifully illustrated, printed locally and are environmentally friendly. They’re available in multiple languages and are sent directly to your home.


There are currently ten books in the Librio store to choose from and we have three perfect suggestions for a first day at school gift.

Recommendation Nr.1: Welcome to School

A perfect gift for the first day of school: the book “Welcome to School” is aimed specifically at all children for whom the adventure “school” is about to begin. 

Starting school is an exciting time for a little one; what if no one says “hello” to me? What happens if I don’t know something? Visiting school children in different countries, the child in the story finds answers to their questions. Accompanied by their helpful, though somewhat clumsy, feathered friend, Bravebeak, your child will be whisked to Nepal, India, Jordan, South Africa, Vietnam, and Honduras.

The wonderful illustrations are from local artists from each respective country. The resulting variety of drawing styles enables you to immerse yourself authentically in the everyday school life of different children.

Recommendation Nr.2: My Fantabulous Orchestra

My Fantabulous Orchestra’ immerses a child in the wonderful world of music.

The picture book is a heart-warming story about having the courage to follow your dreams and is ideal as a first day at school gift idea. As with all Librio books, a personal dedication can be printed in the front of the book – the perfect place for your good luck wishes for their starting school!

Recommendation Nr.3: Search-and-Find World Book

Perhaps you remember the Where’s Wally/Waldo books from your own childhood? These hidden object books from Librio are similar. The Search-and-Find World book is Librio’s bestseller and is rated 4.9/5 stars by our customers. 


There are a lot of objects to discover in the ten beautiful illustrations. In addition to country-specific objects, there’s also a secret code (personalized at random for each child) which – when found – reveals a secret message that you add to the book prior to purchase.
