Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

What a brilliant draw and write journal this is, one for children to complete and parents to treasure! Children are encouraged to complete pages with information all about themselves – from their favourite meals, friends, shows, places to their dreams, nightmares, hopes and fears . . . It is presented in a way that makes these activities fun and not arduous tasks. If my daughter had completed this whilst a child I am sure it would be a treasured book to be brought out and reminisced about for decades to come, and I’m sure other families will treat this in the same manner. It would actually be interesting to complete a new version of this every two or three years, just to see how attitudes change and abilities develop!
I actually think this could also be inspirational for some teachers and would recommend they get themselves a copy! Many of the pages could easily prompt class and group discussions.
A brilliant book that is well illustrated and written, one that is designed for children to interact, discuss, complete the activities and for it all to be a tremendous family keepsake that will be treasured for years to come. I just wish it was available for purchase in time for Christmas as I know several children I would love to buy this for! Oh well, they’ll have an extra present in the New Year instead 🙂 Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley for letting me read and review an ecopy of this.
