More About the Author

" When our children were born I began to appreciate so many wonderful children's books. Oh, how books have changed since my childhood. Treasured books that I have on my bookshelf still have a special meaning to me although the art isn't anywhere near as vibrant as art in children's books today."

Linda was born in Georgia and moved many times when she was growing up. "I have always loved art and journaling. Being creative kept me grounded. As young child I would draw and color for hours. As a teen I painted on canvas or blank walls and I wrote.

"Since my husband and I have been married, we've spent a lot of time outdoors, hiking and enjoying the natural world. It seems to me that when you are an artist you notice opportunities to create. Years and years ago I came across a rock that was perfect for painting."

"My love for art and children's books is what inspires me to write and illustrate books. This is a great quote, "If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~ Toni Morrison.

We all have stories inside us waiting to be released. It is a joy to bring a story to life. Set aside time to read your favorite book today or discover a new book. I know you will smile and be inspired."

Linda has written 12 books. Eight journals with guided prompts that are combined with various artists' illustrations, unique graphics or beautiful photography which encourages the writer to fill up the empty pages with their own life stories, Let's Rock: Rock Painting for Kids which won a Children's Choices award and Only One You which focuses on the love between parents and their child, Adri. You Be You continues on where Only One You left off and now Adri is discovering the world for himself. These books speak to readers of all ages.

Introducing Love You When a story that reassures a child that they are indeed thought of through out the course of our busy day. The end sheets offer more examples of times when thoughts of your child come to mind. Readers have said that the message in this book spans not only to the special love between a parent and a child, the message also speaks to adults. Read this book for yourself and see who you think of as you turn the pages. Life passes in the blink of an eye ~ therefore we must express our love.

This was a Great gift for my 8 yr old niece.
Stacy Traktman
My stepdaughter is very creative so I purchased this in hopes it could be a tool to work out her feelings but also encourage her writing skills.
T. Preston
Beautiful, colorful pages, some lined for writing, some blank for drawing.

Format: Paperback
All About Me, A Keepsake Journal for Kids is a gem. Author, Linda Kranz, has a special insight into what children are thinking and feeling and she invites them to write it down in this child's first journal. Ms. Kranz uses "thought-starters" such as "Name something you have done that makes you proud" and "If someone gave you a million dollars, what would you do with it?" "How does your answer change when you think about it a little longer?" This is the perfect journal for both girls and boys and an inviting way to encourage them to begin writing down their thoughts and feelings with their own words.

THE JOURNAL SUPERSTAR STRIES AGAIN!
ALL ABOUT ME: A KEEPSAKE JOURNAL FOR KIDS
Reviewed by Dr. Jerry Flack, Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado and children's literature consultant, Denver, CO.
A personal anecdote: A friend who owns a bookstore especially geared to youths told me in 1996 that ALL ABOUT ME: A KEEPSAKE JOURNAL FOR KIDS (Northland Publishing) by Linda Kranz was very attractive but would never sell well. She liked the journal but did not believe there was a market for it. A month or two later I asked the same bookstore owner how the journal was selling and her enthusiastic response was that she could not keep enough copies on the shelves to meet the incredible demand. Parents, grandparents, and kids themselves had discovered a perfect catalyst and inspiration for not only thinking about their lives but for writing down these same thoughts plus creative new ideas. Since that auspicious beginning, Linda Kranz has gone on to create at least seven journals for teens, fathers and mothers, a sequel to ALL ABOUT ME, a pregnancy journal, and a brand new nature journal. Now, she has completely revised her initial journal for young writers that is chock-a-block full of new images and ideas - what Kranz calls "thought-starters" -- and once again the journal is made extremely visually appealing by the inclusion of art work from some of the very finest Northland/Rising Moon picture books. The full-spread illustrations are luminous and make the journal beautiful to look at as well as delightful to write in. A great many additional pages contain lively and inviting cartoon illustrations.

My name is Tommy and I am 10. I love this book so much. I got it and I write in it so much. I would reccomend it to every kid in the world. I had a different journal and I didn't know what to write in it and now I can write whatever I want with this book. Again, I love this book and would reccomend it to every kid in the world. Thank You, Tommy

Format: Paperback
All About Me was created by long time journaler, Linda Kranz, for young people who want to begin their journey into self exploration. Delightfully illustrated and written with "thought-starters" such as "Everyone has a favorite place, what is yours?" "What is it like, and what do you like to do there?" or "What do you like to daydream about?" Linda has her hands on the hearts and minds of young people and this keepsake journal will keep your journaler wanting to go back to it time and time again. The ideal journal for both girls and boys ages 7-10.

Format: Paperback
I give this item 3 stars, 1 for being interesting, 1 for being kinda fun, and 1 for entertaining. But it doesn't really make me desperate to write in it all the time.
"All About Me: A Keepsake Journal for Kids" is a good way for kids to express their feelings without feeling uncomfortable by telling them to someone who might laugh or think it's stupid. But some of the ideas for kids to write about are kind of silly, things that kids don't really get excited when they write about them, if you catch my drift. I really can't say this is a good or bad gift, but maybe check out some other journals before deciding on this one.
Here are some fun and interesting topics in this book: Do you have a hobby? Do you have a favorite place? Where is it? What have you learned about being a friend? Who can you trust with your secrets?
Here are some silly and boring topics: What do you like to eat? How did your parents react when you brought home your report card? How do you keep busy on long car trips?
Thanx for reading!

We're homeschoolers and my son would sooner pull his own teeth out than write. I bought him this book along with Dr. Seuss' My Book About Me. He carried them everywhere he went for weeks after the books came, writing in them in the car, in bed, at the table, at the store, etc. He was so proud of his entries he shared them with the rest of the family. It seems to have warmed him up to writing in general. I'm thrilled.

Format: Paperback
I have purchased several of these and others in the series for my children and as gifts. The artwork is interesting, the suggested topics are relevant to the age group, and it makes it more interesting than just listing what you did today. It is not dated like a daily journal, so you can use it when and how you want. I have also found that kids like these journals better than a blank book, which can be overwhelming. I wish I had this when I was a kid.
