It's a book to journal in that is likely to become a treasured gift when filled with memories.

(review written by Nick's wife) I came across these memory books in a parenting magazine and loved the idea of having my children's grandparents fill them out. I even bought some for my grandparents to fill out for me.

After searching through everything Amazon has to offer, I ended up purchasing a variety of books. I chose Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, Tell Me Your Memories, A Grandparent's Legacy and Memories for My Grandchild.

A Grandparent's Legacy is probably my favorite of the books I purchased. It is laid out month-by-month with topics to discuss. The book measures 8" x 5" with a nice covered spiral binding and is about .75" thick. Each page has topics to discuss and lines for writing.

I was slightly disappointed in all the Tell Me Your Memory books. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I really didn't think they would all be the same with a different cover page as they are. I was really disappointed in the size of the books. They are 4" x 5.5" with a 1" spiral binding. Each is about 1" thick. It is laid out for a full calendar year - each day having a different question or memory for the person do write about. The pages have a question at the top and are blank (no lines) below.

Memories for My Grandchild has the most flexible layout - meaning there is no guide for filling things out at a certain time. It is also the largest book, measuring about 8" x 10" and just less than 1" thick. It has a covered spiral binding. This is the only book with a pocket in the back to drop in any special items and a pull-out page to fill in the family tree. The pages in this book are lined as well.

The books all cover similar questions and memories. I haven't gone page-by-page to compare, but have been pleased with what I've seen so far. Since the books are so similar, I'm basing my overall opinion on the appearance and friendliness of the layout.

I bought 3 different grandparent books to review so I could reorder the best one and give to my parents and parent-in-laws to write in for my son. Here are my thoughts on this one: Positives are that it seems to have enough space to write and the questions seem good. Negatives are no envelope for extra pictures or memories, and not much space for photos (only 2 pages in the book for photos). It is designed to complete in a year, each chapter is a month and there are about 7-10 questions per month (some questions have 2-3 parts). I would recommend Memories For My Grandchild instead, which is what I am going to order and hope it gets here by the holiday.

I decided I wanted to give grandparent journals to the parents and in-laws for Christmas, and began reading the reviews for the many books. I have a rather comprehensive genealogy already done, so I wasn't too interested in getting the whole "family tree" aspect. Instead, I wanted insight into the person's childhood and adulthood, and perhaps some little personal nuggets that would really flesh them out for me, my kids, and generations to come.

At any rate, I still couldn't figure out which one I wanted (sometimes those "look inside" things are just useless, showing copyright pages and blank sheets!), and of course the local book stores don't have all of them. I decided the only way I could decide which was right was to buy them all, look at them, and return the ones I didn't like as well. So, I bought Grandmother Remembers a Written Heirloom for My Grandchild, A Grandparent's Legacy: Your Life Story in Your Own Words, A Grandparent's Book, The Grandmother Book: A Book About You for Your Grandchild, Grandparents Journal, Memories for My Grandchild. I'm planning to review them all as I make my decision.

I have purchased many of these books (Grandfather Remembers: Memories for My Grandchild, For My Grandchild: A Grandmother's Gift of Memory (AARP), Grandmother Remembers: A Written Heirloom for My Grandchild, A Grandparent's Legacy: Your Life Story in Your Own Words, Memories for My Grandchild, A Grandparent's Book, Grandparents' Memory Book: Did You Really Walk Five Miles to School?) because it's impossible to tell from reviews which ones will be good and the "Look Inside" is often unavailable or unhelpful. I will look at all of them and keep the one I like or make my own, depending on the results.

First Review of the bunch:

Overall, the book is nice quality. It's spiral bound with a hard cover and the paper is good. This book is small, however. It's much smaller than the other books of this type (About 4" x 7"). The space allotted is often the wrong size. For example, a yes/no question might have two or three lines and a question which requires lengthy explanations won't have enough lines.
