Page contents below!

I found it helpful with other reviews to see a list of the pages inside the baby books. I ended up buying this one because the box with drawer was very unique and I knew I wanted a place to put baby shower cards and whatnot. The box is very sturdy, the book is cute, and the included envelopes and labels are handy. The book itself (not the pages within) is ever so slightly smaller than 8.5x11 inches. The layout is clean with plenty of white space. The pages for pasting photos give you lots of room for both photos and writing captions.

Anyway, here are the content pages (most pages have a facing page where you can paste photos):

-=Waiting for Baby=-
All About Mom
All About Dad
Baby On the Way
Preparing for Baby
Baby Shower

-=Hello, Baby=-
You Were Born
On the Day you were Born
Baby's Birth Stats
All About Baby's Name

-=Life With Baby=-

I'm surprised by all the 5 star reviews. If I would have paid the $50 retail price I would have been furious. At $31 I still wish I could return it, however it's packaged in a manner such that you destroy the outer wrapping when opening it so..guess not.

The graphics are very nice, and the design with the book/box combo is convenient (and the only reason I'm rating it a 3 vs a 2).
I just don't see this as a standalone memory book and I had hoped to not need multiple. There is just very little to fill out for content in my opinion. Not even a page for hospital visitors/guests to sign, etc. I just expected more based on the reviews perhaps, so it was a disappointment.

1/4 of the pages or more are for photos, and I would have liked more room for detailed questions and actual written responses. The questions that are included...meh. "Mom's favorite song?"- really?It seems like there was thoughtful work done on the graphics and the rest of this was just phoned in. At 19.99 this would be a fine purchase with the understanding that you'd need a secondary book for more details.

This baby book is even better in person. If you're like me and don't care for the frilly baby books sold in stores, this is the book for you. The illustrations are adorable and perfect for parents who like something unique and wholesome. The only reason I stumbled across this baby book is because I bought a finger puppet book for my daughter called "In my Tree", I loved the illustrations so much I searched the internet to see if there were more books by Lorena Siminovich. What an amazing find. I highly recommend this baby book!

This baby memory book and keepsake box is adorable. The artwork is so precious. The box is beautifully made and high quality. The memory book has many many pages to fill up and each page prompts you to write special things. Great spaces for adding photos, invitations, etc. I love it.

This is absolutely the cutest baby book I have seen. There is so much room for recording all the important firsts for baby! Also, the graphics are simply adorable (I am a graphic designer, so I am kinda picky and love unique things). I also love that it is a memory box as well...it is well worth the money. I recommend this book for all new parents. Would make a very special gift for someone as well

I am beyond picky when it comes to things like paper, journals, books and photo albums so we took our time finding a baby book that would suit our tastes. When the Petit Collage Book and Memory box arrived, I was quite pleased. The box opens smoothly, and the keepsake envelopes with their little labels are perfect for all the little things you seem to collect from the hospital and all baby's "firsts". I love love love the artwork, and the questions and space provided for answers are good and adequate. We didn't want something completely gender color-coded either, so the warm colors and bright orange of the book was great. There is a space to pop in a photo of baby in the book's cover, and the lines are clean and modern.

My only wish for improvement is that there be a little more generic recording space. There aren't even extra blank pages in the back of the book, so I will have to get creative if I want to write more memories than fit into the space provided. Overall though, it's a small drawback, and we are already enjoying our purchase. If we have another little one, I will look for a similair set up with memory box and book - it is ideal!

Love the modern graphics in this baby book! There are tons of pages to fill out info all about baby and family. There is a page for each month as well as separate pages for many of baby's firsts. There are also pages to fill in details about all the things baby does during the first year such as eating, talking, and favorites. This is great for a boy or girl. One thing to note, the book is solid orange with a space to put baby's photo on the front. The birds nest graphic is not on the cover of the book, but is on the memory box.
