5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Mother Daughter Book[...], August 24, 2010
This review is from: Just Between Us: A No-Stress, No-Rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms (Diary)
I strongly believe mother-daughter book clubs are a great way to get moms and daughters talking about all kinds of topics. This includes sharing fun stories as well as having conversations about topics that may be awkward if they were brought up out of the blue, but are easier broached when talking about something you read.

Now comes a new tool for the two generations to communicate about many different issues. It's called Just Between Us: a No-stress, No-rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms by mother-daughter team Meredith and Sofie Jacobs. I've seen more one-sided journals that grandparents or parents fill out to help their children find out more about their lives growing up, but this is the first time I've seen an interactive journal for two.

Some pages are labeled for the mother to fill in, like the one with the questions, "What I wanted to be when I grew up" and "What really happened when I grew up and why." The daughter's corresponding page asks for her to write about three things she might want to be when she grows up and why.

The topics cover so much--school, family, careers, personal likes and dislikes--and there are also plenty of pages where either or both journalers can write about whatever they'd like to talk about. Just Between Us could be fun as an activity for the moms and daughters on their own, or as part of a book group. As part of book group, you may want to define in advance which pages you'll share in a meeting. That way everyone will know that some pages may contain public thoughts while others will be kept private. I recommend Just Between Us for girls aged nine and up.
