Best think ever. A must have for every child.

This is the 2nd year my son has received his Big Life Journal. I got him his first one for his 7th birthday. This has now become an annual tradition and one which I will keep always. I wish I had a journal like this growing. The game-changer for us has been the new journal buddy series that now goes along with the stories and chapters. My son loves doing the journal and videos together. Last year it was a challenge to get him to complete his first journal. This year, he has done it in 5 months! I love to reflect on last year's journal and what he has completed this year and see the changes he has made with descriptions, examples, writing etc and how far he has come along. It truly is one of the best gifts ever to have for life. WE LOVE BIG LIFE JOURNAL. Keep up the great work.

Big Life Journal Review: Great tool!

My daughter (8yrs old) and I are working through the Big Life Journal and it is a wonderful process. The activities open up conversations about positive thinking, perseverance, practice and believing in yourself. I highly recommend this journal for any child.

Great content, perfect size

I originally purchased the Big Life Journal in PDF form, but when I downloaded it and realized it was over 200 pages, I got a little overwhelmed. I ended up going back to the site and purchasing two of the hardcover Big Life Journals. I was, and still am, very impressed with how well the book is designed, purely from a 'binding and build' perspective. Its hard cover helps keep it clean - I can just wipe off dirt or cheeto-dust; And the binding is sturdy enough to prevent pages from getting loose or torn when the kids are working on the pages. It is also a really convenient size. From top to bottom of the hard cover, it is 9 1/3 inches, and from binding to opening of the hard cover, it is 6 1/3 inches. This makes it really fit in to the little hands of the people working in it, but it also helps make the book 'travel-size,' so it can fit in my purse or luggage when we travel. If I were asked which I would recommend - between the PDF and the Hard Cover version - I would definitely suggest the Hard Cover Big Life Journal, 100%

Big Life Journal

This book has been amazing way to connect with my child and help him to dream about his future. He has to really think about his answers which makes it a great tool for success.

The journal covers 10 important topics

Believe in Yourself

Mistakes Help You Grow

Be Persistent

Be Grateful

Be Unique, Be You

Challenges Make You Stronger

Effort is Key

Love Learning 

Be Kind 

Make a Difference in the World

A powerful connection tool

Big Life Journal is completed with a Journal Buddy — a parent, grandparent, teacher, older sibling, a relative or friend who lives far, etc.

Journal Buddies will love their special time connecting, listening to kids’ ideas, sharing their own stories, and enjoying great conversations about life. Children and grown-ups alike will look forward to this time together! 

The Big Life Kids Podcast accompanies the journal

Your child will be able to listen to the complementary episodes of the podcast as they are going through their Big Life Journal. This creates a powerful multi-sensory experience which allows them to absorb information faster and more effectively.

Only the highest quality materials

With plenty of room to draw and write on each page, the Big Life Journal lets children work at their own pace as they reflect, learn and grow.

This beautiful guided journal is made for little hands to use and durable enough to last as a keepsake for children as they grow older.

- Bright, sturdy hardcover
- 176 pages of high-quality paper 
- Lays flat when opened for easy drawing and writing

Our well-constructed journals need to be “worked open” to take advantage of the lay-flat feature. Do this to make sure your journal lays nicely flat.
