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.

My husband's grandmother filled out one of these books for him (not this identical one, but similar). She recently passed away at 91 years old, and it was so wonderful to be able to turn through the pages of the book she filled out for him, reading her memories and her hopes and wishes for him. We wanted to get a book like this for my mother in law so she could fill one out for our two year old son.

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.

I'm not bothering to send this book back, but I'm really disappointed! The cover was pasted on haphazardly - it was a little crooked and had several air bubbles in it. Also, I don't know why they made it such a huge size (9" x 12"). The reason I ordered it was because I had already ordered three other "grandmother" books from Amazon. I like all of those, but I have another grandchild, so I needed another, different one. Hope our youngest isn't shocked when he gets this one some day. He seems to be easy going, so maybe it will be okay. LOL
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.

Very bad quality. The paper on the front was glued with wrinkles in it!, how can you sell something like this?!
