Here's what I love about the book:
*Beautifully illustrated with colourful vintage pictures
*Sweet, thoughtful and even funny quotes inside
*Not religious (so many baby books I looked through had Hanukkah pages, Christmas pages, Halloween and Easter pages) Instead, this book has a section titled "Holidays & special events we have shared together"
*You don't HAVE to fill in EVERY milestone (1st birthday, etc). Instead, the contents are worded, "Some of your birthdays", which is fantastic.
*nice large size, with lots of space for writing
*many many places to put photos!
*there's a tiny bit of bubbling on the paper part of the cover, but it's hardly noticeable. This might need to be re-glued over the years though.
*It's possible there are actually too many places to put photos. I wonder if the spine is thick enough to accommodate all the places!Read more ›
I looked through a lot of options before choosing this one. I liked that this one was focused on more of a broad view, with open ended questions that were still straight forward enough that she will have an easy time answering it. We gave this book to my mother in law for Mother's Day, and she loved it. I can't wait until she presents it to our son someday. This is a great gift and something that someone can take time and write in it little by little, nothing has to be done all at once.
The only negative I have to say is that the cover is literally a sticker put on the book. It looked like it was starting to peel off, and it was bubbled slightly in some places. I pressed the bubbles down with my fingers and placed it on the bookshelf with a heavy book on top of it for a day or so. That seemed to help. I wish the quality of the cover was better, but I really love the materiel inside.
the pre titled pages help you to come up with ideas and are very appropiate
and are not just for young grandchildren like some books are.
Anyway, there are many better choices on Amazon for these types of books, such as: "Memories of My Grandchild" by Decker and Stephenson and "Grandmother Remembers" by Levy.
