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.
The questions are very specific and there is no space to create your own questions and adjust to your child. Also, this book should be categorized as Christian or religious as there are religious questions in it. And some of the questions are just boring. Overall a nice idea but doesn't work for me. Too much information about the author, title page, how to use the book; no room to create your own questions. Overall, disappointing. Will not use (although I'm stuck with it now- I completed a page) and would not purchase again.
The questions/interviews/spots for photographs are all wonderful. The concept of pockets to hold cards/art work is great. I have never once stuffed a folder so thick I couldn't seal it the way it's designed. So why is my book already looking ready to burst its bindings? I'm trying to figure out a way to transfer it to a D-ring binder... but haven't quite figured out how to do it without just destroying the book.
This makes me sad because I'm afraid to add anything - and he's so young! This book is supposed to go to 18! And because I don't like people flipping through it - the whole point of the thing, really, because I'm afraid they'll rip out a page or something. I will try to get a photo up soon to show.
Love it, but sad about the pockets.
However, this book has some disappointing issues. As far as the interview questions, some of them are not to my liking, such as asking about God, which I didn't find offensive but others may - I just think a lot of the questions could've been better, such as asking "What do you think Mommy/Daddy do at work?" instead of about God. I've actually taken to whiting out some of them and writing in my own questions. Another disappointment is that the pages are not very cheerful and are boring. But what I hate about this book is that years 1-4 are all lumped together with barely any space for photos/details. And the little bit of space there is for pictures, you have to cut your 4x6 pictures down pretty small to fit them. This book definitely needs several pages for each birthday and for photos, not one. There's also not much room to write details either so you have to write small and it doesn't give you space to write what gifts were received on every birthday. But on every birthday there's space to write who their best pal is - doesn't make sense. I just whited that out and wrote something else. Overall, the idea of this book is great, but the flaws make its execution sort of pathetic.
