Journal Buddies (Giveaway)
This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winners are Heather & Susanne!
Girlie Girl is totally into secrets, diaries, and journals. I guess it’s just her age. So when I had the opportunity to review Journal Buddies by Jill Schoenberg, I knew my daughter would be thrilled.
The journal buddies books are fun, interactive journals intended to help adults (parents, teachers, mentors…) build and strengthen a child’s self-esteem. These powerful but simple journals are truly a fresh and invigorating take on journal keeping.
Jill was nice enough to send us both a girl and a boy copy of Journal Buddies for Girlie Girl and her cousin. She also autographed both books which really impressed Girlie Girl. “Wow, how did she know my name?” she wondered.
This is no ordinary journal where you keep all your thoughts a secret. Journal Buddies is meant to be completed and shared with friends. Girlie Girl really liked the fact that you don’t have to have the same buddy every single day. One day it could be her cousin, another day it could be a friend, even I can be one of her buddies.
For each journal entry, Girlie Girl needed to write 3 things that she likes about her buddy and 3 things that her buddy likes about her. This was a great way to help her think about the positive in other people. Journal Buddies focuses on kindness to others, an important trait to instill in our children.
There is also a focus word for the day complete with lined and/or blank pages. I felt this allowed for Girlie Girl to really express her creativity. She could write down her ideas, draw pictures, or even glue magazine cutouts and photographs to help her express her thoughts.
When she’s done with Journal Buddies, I’m going to keep it in a very safe place. I know this will become a treasured keepsake that we’ll both enjoy reading when she gets older.
