A whimsical and charmingly illustrated journal designed to help your child explore his or her life in a fun and creative way. Full of great ideas to spark their thought process.
Guided prompts encourage introspection. You can collaborate with your child to complete their very first journal. A page or two at a time and before you know it they’ve created a true keepsake. One you and your child will treasure for years to come.
Children who acquire a habit of self reflection understand themselves better, have improved mental health, and emotional balance.
Do children really benefit from journaling?
How can I help my child like to journal?
How can I encourage my child to use a journal?
Is it better to have prompts or blank pages in a journal for children?
Does parental involvement help or hinder the process?
What happens after children work on their first journal?
What about sharing and/or privacy?
Younger children may be more inclined that older to share what they have written. Allow children the opportunity to share if they so desire. Do not pressure them to do so. Honor your child’s privacy.
My Journal is a great way for children to express themselves and record their thoughts and feeling. The illustrations are adorable, and the content will guide your child to explore within. While I ordered this book for all the children in my family I myself worked it as it also spoke to “the child in me”. Great place to go within for a child or an adult who still nurtures their inner child.

I purchased this journal for my granddaughter. She is finishing 2nd grade. She was very excited to have a place to think and write. She is very proud of her entries. For the most part, she tackles the prompts on her own. Occasionally she asks me questions to hear my response. I love when she shares what she is learning about herself. I salute the efforts of this author for bringing such an attractive and appealing journal for young children.

What a charming invitation to inspire the gift of writing! As I previewed the pages, thumbing through the prompts and following the tenderness of the illustrations, I found myself reflecting back on my own childhood memories. I couldn’t wait to get started. As it turns out, the little writers in my world are thoroughly enjoying this special time together, exploring our hearts and imaginations!! A definite must for encouraging connection and instilling a love affair with one’s authenticity.
Fun & inspiring. I wish every kid on the planet had an adult to sit with and write, share, learn and grow. Debra is extraordinary in tapping into a child’s heart! If you have someone in your life you can share this with…please do! Don’t miss this unique opportunity. Enlightening for adults ( big kids ) too. Great job Debra!
