This is a fantastic journal. All pages on the left side of the journal are for the mother and all the pages on the right side are for the daughter to fill in. Some of the pages are blank for generic entries and many of the other pages ask very interesting specific questions. Questions include topics from the past, ideas for the future, many lists of favorites, and so much more. My daughter is 9 years old--but I can also see this working for daughters of all ages. Makes for great conversation. Also comes with 2 attached silk bookmark ribbons (different colors), I pick a page out for my daughter and she picks a page out for me. I could see doing another journal like this again as she gets older. What a great communication tool.
