Hello fellow journalers in search of the perfect Baby Book. Well, we've come pretty close! Upon the birth of my son, I was looking for that something special. I had received a different book for my daughter, but it was quite feminine and still was lacking some of the special moments I wanted to preserve. I found it quite difficult to find one that would capture the essence of a boy, yet provide all the sweetness of the baby's first years. I knew what I wanted, but all of the books I found in stores just couldn't quite make it. Turning to Amazon (where I should have looked in the first place) I took the advice of all the reviewers and bought this journal, sight unseen. I was not the least bit disappointed!!

This gentle, appealing baby keepsake book is the best I've ever seen (and I am VERY particular when it comes to these types of things :) ) The characters are sweet and the pages inviting. I found it hard to find a book that was appropriate for a boy, yet this one has a remarkable way of being suitable for either boy or girl. (I have almost decided to purchase one for my daughter and redo hers with the Humble Bumbles!) The colors are rich, yet soft jewel tones, and there is quite a bit of space to paste your pictures, especially if you crop some of them first.

I was especially pleased with the guided journal sections and the special moment highlight pages. There was ample space to answer the questions, but not so much as to feel compelled to write volumes. (Being a writer, I well know the pressure of feeling as if you have to fill in all the lines in order to be completed!) As well, the small pockets for things like a locket of hair or the baby bracelet were perfect, and we are really enjoying the included growth chart!

My wife and I returned this journal; the characters are Christian-themed, and roughly half of the quotes are bible verses.

Parents of other faiths (or none of the above) and those seeking a neutral journal will probably not find this one works for them. Other than that, the illustrations were cute and the rest of the design and production quality seemed fine.

I spent a long time looking for a keepsake book and this is the only that had everything I was looking for.

1) It's gender-neutral (we didn't know what we were having)

2) There are several pockets, so you can save a lock of hair, hospital bracelet, or whatever you want.

3) There are pages that are almost blank, so you can write whatever you want, as well as pages that ask specific things like, homecoming, first holidays, first outing, etc. And there are lots of pages for photos, and these really cute cardboard picture frames for matting your photos are included.

4) It's not at all cheesy. We wound up having a boy, and I think this book is something he'll be able to enjoy when he's a little older. It's not a whole bunch of pastels, nor is it filled with racecars and trains. The colors are somewhat bold, with lots of purples, greens, and yellows, as well as as some pinks and blues. There are quotes on the bottom of every page. And there's a little picture of a bear on every page. One of my favorite things about this book is that each page is different. There are many color schemes, and the bear pictures are all unique, so when I show this to my son in a few years, he won't get bored.

5) It's not ridiculously expensive. I paid $20 for mine, and I think it's well worth it.

Some of the topics covered in this book are: Visitors, About Your World, Celebrating, Your Favorite Things, there are pages about relatives, First Tooth, and there's a growth chart, which I'm definitely planning on using.

I highly recommend this book. I wish I had had it in the hospital, because there's a place for baby's foot- and handprints. If they still make this book in a few years, I'm going to buy it for our next baby.

I purchased two copies of this baby journal as Christmas gifts for two expectant mothers. I was unfamiliar with the Humble Bumbles series and its characters and bought the books from amazon sight unseen and based solely on the glowing reviews here. The book does seem to be for the most part satisfactory. My only warning for potential buyers is that the author/illustrator appears to be a born-again bible-thumper (as admitted in the illustrator's own words in the "About the Illustrator" insert) and the book is littered with excerpts from the Bible and other quotations which reference "Heaven" and "God". If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, then I imagine, you'll find this book nearly flawless. I, however, found the quasi-proselytizing to be somewhat off-putting. Apart from that, I don't really have any complaints. The books strengths are outlined ad infinitum in the reviews below; I just wanted to provide this caveat to potential buyers who may neither be aware (as I wasn't) nor enthralled (as I am not) with the book's religious inclinations.

I bought this book because I felt like I 'had' to have a baby book but knew that I wouldnt do anything too complicated. This is pretty simple and not asking for too much time or effort (something a new mom has little of). I like that there are spots for photos so it becomes a baby book and a scrap book at the same time. I also like that it goes to 3 years old...the later years are more about the milestones and birthdays.

ETA: 5-18-09 I am editting this review to let readers know that I am getting this for my 2nd baby. It seems to be the best of what I am looking for. The bible quotes (as some have mentioned) were not offensive to me at all. I am Jewish and actually didn't notice them all that much. They are written in small-ish text so they don't dominate the page.
