How are the kids doing on their summer journaling? Here are two suggestions that I promise the kids will love and offer aspects of journaling. My Book about Me is an oldie but goodie. We love it in our house. I still have my book (filled out 3 times) which provides a lot of entertainment. The book is filled with questions about yourself, your house, friends and more.
My Book about Me by Me, Myself (with help from Dr. Seuss & Roy McKie) $10.17 on Amazon.com. Ages 5-8.
A page from My Book about Me, way back when.
Favorite Songs: Thank God I am a Country Boy + Letter 23.
Another very creative and original option is this Pirate's Log. My sister found it in a new favorite store in Los Angeles, Yolk. For older children, with suggestions for how to be a pirate and opportunities to journal. Particularly "cool", the attached reading light for night time writing.
