Unexpected reaction

Gave to my grandson who is 10 going on 22 LoL and really missing his Dad (my son) who is in the military. He’s mom doesn’t let them have a lot of contact so I thought this would be good for him to have things to talk about with his Dad. When I showed him the page about his super powers he smiled so big and started checking some items off the list and I thought my heart would bust! He actually hugged the book to show me how he felt about he’s gift and I knew the little dent on the front from shipping wouldn’t matter... then he looked at the book again and tried to fix the dent! anywayLoL

Amazing journals

Just started these with my boys last night 8yrs & 15yrs and in just the first 10pages reading, answering the questions, talking, laughing, reflecting on self talk was AMAZING! We only spent about 30mins on them doing the first 10pages so it didn't get long and they didn't get bored with it and that was enough time for me to really learn and understand even more about my babies and the way they think and view the world. I am loving these Journals so far, I will definitely recommend investing in these for Kids.

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
- Sewn-in satin ribbon bookmark 

...and it lays flat! 

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.
