What is more important than making sure that our kids know how special they are?
That our children know they are loved, and we are proud of them?
Is there any GREATER GIFT we can give to our children?
Thanks to Jill Schoenberg the creator of Journal Buddies, the children in our lives can build their self esteem while creating a keepsake they will cherish forever!
Journal Buddies are a fantastic gift idea for ANY child on your Holiday Gift List this season.
From the back cover...
Journal Buddies is no ordinary Journal.
It's an invitation to experience a journaling adventure and to expand your creativity and express your feelings. Most of all, its an invitation to strengthen your self-esteem, build healthy relationships and create a positive outlook on life. To add to the excitement, you complete this unique journal with the help of your buddies-your friends, Mom, Dad, teachers, Grandparents, Cousins, Mentors, even your pet or imaginary friend. YOU'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED A JOURNAL LIKE THIS!
I received 2 copies of Journal Buddies in the mail and I couldn't wait to open them up. After reading about these amazing books online, I had to see them for myself. Journal Buddies come in 2 editions....
Each version is made to fit the interests of the gender it is written for. Made for ages 7-12, Award-Winning Journal Buddies are an excellent tool in building self esteem and empowering your child.
From the beginning of these books, I knew just what a powerful tool they would be. This is the dedication from the Girl's edition....
" To Minu and Tabi and to every girl on earth. Your loved more than you know!"
Shouldn't every child feel great about themselves? In todays fast pace world, moments of kindness happen far too infrequently, but Journal Buddies can help to put a little more love into each child's life.
Journal Buddies are set up for 30 entries, which gives your child the opportunity to share their journal with 30 friends, family members, teachers and mentors. Thats a chance for 30 people to give them compliments and build their self-esteem!
Each version of Journal Buddies has an introduction with instructions for sharing your journal with friends and family. There is also an introduction to creative journaling and even 89 creative journaling ideas with room for your child to add their own! I also like that the author included a page on kindness.
Reminders to practice kindness are always welcome in my home!
Here are the Rules of the Boys Journal Buddies....
Taken from the boys version...
What's in each Journal Entry?
Each journal entry has four parts to it...
A thought for the day
Qualities, Traits and Talents-where you and your buddies like about each other.
A focus word for the day- an idea to explore or simply a word to think about. You can talk about it with your buddy, draw a picture about it, write about it... it is up to you!
Blank Pages-Some are lined and some are not. These pages are for your thoughts and feelings or your drawings, art, and poetry or any other creative journaling ideas that you want to try out.
This is an example journal entry page from the Girls version...
Why I love Journal Buddies...
There is no more precious gift that you can give your child than the gift of love, self-esteem and self-confidence that they will gain from Journal Buddies!
