Editorial Reviews

Review

“The beauty of this journal is its only drawback. A grandmother might hesitate to begin the recording process for fear of making a mistake. A blank journal is no journal at all, though, so grandmothers should take the plunge, knowing that something imperfect created by a grandmother is more precious than something perfect that is untouched by a loving hand.”
-About.com, Susan Adcox

My husband and I learned we were pregnant just a few weeks ago, and I went searching for a pregnancy journal in our local bookstore. Instead, I walked away with this beautiful book I'd like to give to my mother. Blame it on the hormones, but I nearly cried reading the sweet quotes inside this book. It is very evenly split between grandmother documenting her own life and milestones, and her new grandchild's (particularly how she feels about her grandchild). This is NOT a baby book, but a lifetime of memories that grandmother can fill in about her life, her family, and the early years of her grandchild.

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!

Cons:
*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!

This is a great christmas gift--I bought one and came back for another. The photo on the cover is a little bubbled but otherwise it's a great piece. It's a bit shorter than some of the other books on the market, but the questions are good and the illustrations scattered throughout the text are absolutely beautiful. I'd highly recommend this as a gift.
