The amazing power of personalisation
Your child sees themselves as a character in the book. They're at the heart of the action, driving the story forward.
Empowerment and ownership
As your child sees their character taking a leading role in the book, they form a stronger relationship with the story and its messaging.
When your child encounters personalised content, they are better able to absorb the information and ideas presented.
Let’s not forget, it’s fun!
Children love being the star of the show. Sharing their joy makes your heart smile!
At My Big Moments, we work with a team of experts in child psychology, play therapy and neuroscience education. With their expertise, we write stories to help children cope with challenges, changes and milestones they may face.

“The illustrations are on the nail. Bright-eyed innocent children, a cheeky cockatoo and parents who are there but not intrusive.”
Book reviewer, Bob’s Book Blog
“The website was amazingly easy to use. I loved the dedication page and tips for parents. All really nice touches that were unexpected but also made so much sense.”
Mum of two

“It isn't wishy-washy advice, nor brutal and blunt, but is perfectly pitched for the audience — young children.”
"A bona fide treasure – thoughtful, well-written, contemporary, and backed up by research."
Thalia Kehoe Rowden
Former editor of The Sapling and mother of two
“Innovative, clever and unique, these personalised picture books with their engaging, well-crafted stories and vibrant, funky illustrations are the perfect way to prepare our children for those big moments in their young lives.”

Registered Play Specialist, Director of Creative Coping and mum of three
“Gorgeous illustrations. Love your work! I’ll be ordering the ‘starting school’ one for my little girl.”
Editor, OHbaby! Magazine
"While these books will help every parent handle those significant moments in a child's life with sensitivity, they are never preachy: they are entertaining, beautifully written and engaging."
CEO, Australian Society of Authors
