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.

My 9 year old daughter

My 9 year old daughter and I have loved using the Big Life Journal. She is really into it, and I love the time we spend together working on it and coming up with ideas.

With plenty of room to draw and write on each page, the Big Life Journal lets kids 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
  • Over 200 pages of high-quality paper printed with vegetable-based inks
  • Lays flat when opened for easy drawing and writing
  • Sewn-in satin ribbon bookmark (so kids can instantly find where they left off)

    As Journal Buddies, parents and teachers 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 it all week long!
