so postive

We are loving the positive messages that are throughout the journal and how it's a special time for us to talk together and journal together at bedtime. My daughter especially loves the coloring at the end of each chapter.

We love our big life journal. Our Autistic child who has a hard time with sharing emotions and emotional regulation loves sitting down and night and going through the journal with us. In fact his teacher loved it so much they are doing the journals as part of their curriculum which I think is. Great ide!

Fabulous journal

I purchased this for my seven year old son. It is a beautiful book. It is full of inspirational quotes and motivational activities. It is a wonderful resource to have and I’m so glad I’ve purchased it. Will be purchasing more for gifts in future and have already recommended to friends with children of a similar age. Definitely a five star product.

Good product, toxic smell

I have bought two journals from you and they are very good, but you should change to a less toxic print colour - both books smell horribly and my children have stopped using them because they got headaches and nausea every time they used them.

They look forward to do the journal together via Face time and in person when they can. My daughter gave a journal to her best friend as gift. Besides keeping in touch, they practice and learn many skills.

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
- 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.
