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.
My sister says it was such an excellent product that she got on line and ordered additional products!! She also states that she is trying to work some of the info into a single parenting class that she is teaching!!! We love the products!! Thank you!!
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%
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 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.
