I have boy-girl twins who are nine. I bought this journal for my son with high hopes as I'd bought 'Just between us: a no-stress, no-rules Journal for girls and their mums' and my daughter loved it. Unfortunately Journal Buddies just missed the mark. The tone was way too young for a 9-year-old's reading age (eg "Excellence: you say it EX-sah-lens". I would hope that anyone over 5 would have heard the word excellence in conversation). While I liked where Journal Buddies is trying to go, the headings are overly lecturing and condescending (eg: "Focus word: Self-esteem"). For boys anywhere over about 7, you can't be so obvious. It would be better to 'sneak up' on the topic with some humour. My daughter's journal achieves this by having silly/quirky lists like your favourite movies or songs or most embarassing moment at school. It then sprinkles in some more searching questions (eg "what I would do if I knew I couldn't fail"). This is how it gets the child (and mum!) engaged without feeling, well...lame.

We have got around the user-interface issue of Journal Buddies by crossing out the instructions and writing in the stupidest and most hilarious "focus words" we could come up with. The result is a lot of laughter and some great conversations, but more despite the book than because of it. The journal *process* is terrific for boys - for the reason others have mentioned - so I'd love to see the authors try a slightly less earnest approach.

"Journal Buddies" is a wonderful resource for parents or other significant people in a child's life. My 7 year old son loves learning about himself in this simple writing activity that he shares with me and other people he cares about. My 9 year old daughter also jumped at the chance to write in this book. This journal is unique in that the writer's buddy shares his or her ideas also in the journal. From the activity the child learns who he or she is from other people's point of view and builds a positive image of who the child can be. One book is designed just for girls and another is designed just for boys. This very creative journal was well received by my children. Journal Buddies is one of my best discoveries as a mom.

This is a must have book for any child. It's an outstanding way to promote their confidence and self esteem and encourage a love of writing.

My son has very low self esteem and no confidence in himself. After using Journal Buddies for a few weeks he's really started to feel better about himself and his abilities.

I got this for both of my sons for Christmas. My 7 year old son actually liked it more than my 11 year old son. I like the format of the book and the idea that writing can be shared with anyone in your life. I think for my older son he would rather writing be for himself rather than it be shared. Having prompts for writing can be helpful for some children and it's neat to look back over what you've written so I would recommend this journal.
