Looking at the preview for this book, I didn't know what to expect; many books on journaling include some sort of materials section at the beginning, and I was looking for something more. Wanting to learn to doodle better myself, I ordered a copy and jumped for joy when it arrived.

When it came out of the package, I was surprised! It's a great size -- small enough to fit in a purse or backpack -- and is THICK.

Past the recommended materials, there are pages and pages of prompts, ideas, and collaged backgrounds for you to work on. The prompts are diverse, and many have "tips" for how you can expand and enhance your journaling. They range from ways to use materials to cutting "out a photo of a friend -- paste it on the page and start dooodling in the Mehndi style around it," to "What do I want to be? Happy, adventurous, fun? Either write these words or find them in magazines and paste them onto the page. Doodle around them."

The pages are great for girls just discovering who they are. There are bits for favorite jewelry, your favorite and least favorite classes, a school makeover, and "I can't wait to be an adult because..." But there are deeper prompts as well. Dawn Sokol has girls exploring who they are and want to be, what they value, who they look up to, what quotes guide them. Working through this doodle diary will help girls grow and foster strong self-esteem and figure out who they are.

If you're an adult, you, too, can work through this diary! Many of the prompts will take you back to childhood, where you can re-examine what you loved (and didn't love!) back then, bringing those school years into clear focus. And many are fun prompts -- Dawn has you exploring new materials and gives you tips on how to use them in different ways.

I'm an artist and journalling teacher - and this book has tickled me on both levels. The prompts are perfect jumping points for all sorts of creative thought and the pages are delightfully designed, yet not so perfect/prescious that they scare a child off from marking on them/journalling. I put it immediately on my journalling bibliography that I hand out to my student's parents - and based on the kids' reactions at today's class, it'll soon be in each of their backpacks! Furthermore, my daughter begged me to give her my copy. Solution? I bought another one!! Wonderful book, Dawn - and thank you!!

Who says that doodling has to be just for kids, or even just for girls? Dawn Sokol's new book, Doodle Diary is the perfect size book for your on the go art moments. It's fresh. It's colorful. It's inspiring. It's inexpensive. It's a fun little book that you can toss in your purse with a small handful of favorite pens and work on it while you are in line at the post office, at lunch, waiting for a movie to start, etc... I know what my nieces will be receiving for Christmas!

In the meantime, my copy is in my purse along with a tiny set of $2 gel pens from Dick Blick. Guess who's been having fun with art on the go? My plan is to use the book now as is and then cut it up later to reuse it later in my regular art journal!

I love my new doodle diary! It is a birthday present. I'm 12 going on 13 and love to doodle in notebooks so I like it. There is only one small problem. It's so stiff and hard to open to write in. It may loosen but we'll see. Thanks for reading! ;)

I purchased this book for an 11 year girl who I knew loves to doodle and write in a journal occasionally. She loved the gift! I have since asked her how she likes her new journal, her reply was that it was very fun and nice that they give you ideas of what to journal and make it fun to do. She also says how a lot of her friends are jealous and want one of their own. :) I call that a success! Its not easy now a days to please pre-teen kids with small simple gifts (its no IPod), I super happy with my purchase!

I just got a copy and can't wait to share it with my daughter. We're often feel like creating together but then don't know quite what to do - and this is going to give us hours of delish creating. What looks like a deceptively simple book - like Keri Smith's - leads you deeper into the creative process and being a strong girl. Love it!

Format: Paperback
Doodle Diary is full of great prompts for those stuck moments when you just can't think of what you want to journal about. You can zip over and just open to a random page and follow the instructions however you interpret them at that moment. The book has prompts for a wide age range and a pretty diverse crowd. It is, however, primarily designed for girls who like pink, fluffy things. Girl1's crowd started turning away from that when they were around 9-10 years old. Girl2 loves the pinkness, but she's 5 and can't read the prompts by herself yet. That severely limits the ages that this book will naturally appeal to. This seems to come more from an editorial or even marketing position than what the author intended. The prompts are obviously well conceived and intended for a much larger audience.

Overall, I like the randomness, concept, and sheer volume of prompts.
I am put off by the overly "pink" motif and it is a bit pricey.

Four out of Five Stars makes this a great book to have in your collection.
