Perfect for a parent who is not a scrapbooker!
on June 2, 2012
This book is perfect for me! I am not interested in scrapbooking, but have a little mommy guilt about not putting together something cute and fun for my daughter to have when she is older. If 7 year-old-girls compare scrapbooks, my daughter is destined to wonder why her momma didn't deliver a scrapbook.
Book description: This book has fill in the blank and short essay questions for each year. The questions are sure to create lots of memories for you as a parent. The book is intended to cover years 1-18 and there is a final page for parents to write a note to end the book.
Types of pages:
Photo pages - you'll need something to attach the pictures (like double stick tape
Birthday pages - one page for each birthday with questions for parent to answer about the day of birthday
Interview pages - once your baby can communicate, these Q&A pages will create fun moments for parent-child.
Time Capsule pockets - with suggestions of what to put in the pocket
Bonus pages - fun activity pages which can capture your child's imagination or perception of the world
Spiral binding - If I add keepsakes, the binding will open to accommodate.
Elastic strap - To keep the book closed
Quality paper - Nice paper - ink won't bleed through
Gender neutral colors - orange / green / white (think pumpkin and forest green)
Something that might not be for everyone:
On some of the interviews, there is a question of "what are your thoughts about God". This might bother some people, but I think it could be an interesting question even if you are not raising your child with a belief in God - they are bound to have friends who talk about church, God, etc. - so this is an opportunity to have a discussion about that topic.
Something that might bother general consumers:
There is definitely an ink (or paper) odor; I expect the odor will dissipate over time.
The book is made in China.
