Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Author: Hourglass Press, Saul Sauza
Publisher: Dover Publications

This short (64 page) book is filled with things to draw, colour, imagine and do, encouraging creativity and active participation. There are origami type activities, find the differences, suggestions of things to draw, a comic strip to create and lots of other tasks to consider and have a go at that will inspire children – and adults.
This would be a welcome set of activities for journeys and alternative things to do during holidays. It seems strange for it to be called a journal but, apart from that minor quibble, it is an interactive fun book that will easily help give hours of pleasure. The activities are also the sort that can be completed by anyone who can manipulate a pencil or crayon successfully, regardless of their age so everyone in a family could each have their own copy of it and complete to their own satisfaction. I suspect some parents would enjoy saving the completed book as a keepsake, too. Teachers could easily use it as a source of ideas to use with pupils, too.
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
