Our little Elodie, or- not so little Elodie now at nine years old, is a lover of reading and writing; of paper and stationery, of writing diaries and letters and making plans in her notebooks. I am hoping she’ll keep the diaries that she regularly begins- they’ll be so much fun to look back on when she’s older! She is like a mini me in this respect- I love writing and pretty notebooks and my nose was in a book as much as hers is when I was her age. Elodie referred to herself as ‘bookwormy’ the other day, which I thought was very cute – she gets through books so quickly! It’s hard to keep her stocked up with something to read. She has a bedroom full of books and we took our regular trip to the library recently and left with 24 books! Craziness! I could hardly carry them to the car! The three older ones have their own library card and it’s a blessing that you can actually take 12 books out each if you wanted! I don’t think we’ll ever need to get Archie his own library card if that’s the case!
With Elodie loving jotting down her memories of being nine, I jumped at the chance for Elodie to review ‘The Big Life Journal’ and when it arrived she was super excited! It’s a lovely hard back book where you can jot down your feelings about the Big Ideas of Life and it helps children focus on what kind of person they want to become.
What is the Big Life Journal?
Recommended for children ages 7 and up, the Big Life Journal is a growth mindset journal for kids. It’s packed full of lovely stories and poems and is divided into 26 weeks, designed to be used once per week.
So far, Elodie has loved it! As you share your journaling with a buddy (usually a parent or family member) We’re loving cosying up after I’ve popped the others in bed and being inspired by the prompts and stories inside. They are fab conversation starters about the Big Life things which are the kind of stuff I always think we should talk about with our kiddos but it never seems the right time- it’s been lovely carving out time to make sure Elodie has a bigger vision of the person they want to be when she’s all grown up! Look at the super cute things she wrote about her Auntie Hannah too!
I’m excited to have discovered Big Life Journal and think that I’ll try and share this tradition with all of my kiddos as they grow up!
We were gifted a copy of ‘The Big Life Journal’ in exchange for a review. All thoughts and words are our own.
