Ok, enough, but let me tell you, this is a great springboard for conversations. I don't have to ask "tough" questions and get a shrug, or try to force an awkward discussion about "what did you do in school today" because it all comes out when I ask these questions and show that I'm accepting of every answer she gives. She has even said she didn't want to answer a question, and that was ok with me. It's still an answer, right? A question in this book is what raised the big red flag for me when she told me how bored she was in school, or that someone was stealing her pencils, or that a place called Cat Paradise exists, if only in her and her friends' minds.
Plus, my daughter loves this. It's special to her and she's special to me. I highly recommend it.
I still love this journal, though! I think the prompts are terrific and that there's enough space. I wish my daughter would have taken to it better because I see it as a wonderful keepsake, with great potential for a lot of laughs when she gets older and reminisces with me.
One star deducted for the cover, which really should be a hardcover if you're expecting someone to use this actively for three years and then save it for many years beyond that. The cover is really just a thick cardboard. Aside from that, I think most non-neurotic children would love it. ;)
