A Year in My Life
Record your day as a recipe. Draw a picture of the sweetest thing you ate today. Write down something you didn’t understand today. A Year in My Life is a mashup of a creative writing journal and a doodle book with tons of kid appeal.
This beautifully illustrated journal invites your child to create a commemorative keepsake from a year in his life. Fill in 365 quirky idea starters and unique prompts, one for every day of the year. A few prompts, zombies and aliens, for example, may need judicial editing by more conservative families, but the bulk of A Year in My Life will be a fun breather in your child’s otherwise academically-rich day. Plus because A Year in My Life is undated, it can be started at any time of the year.

”This little book has 365 prompts, one for every day of the year, to help you get your creative juices flowing. Some prompts require more thought and time, others are quite simple and require very little work.”Read the Review
I cannot say enough about how happy I am with this purchase. My daughter has loved doing it and I have loved reading and checking out her doodles. This has definitely given her a year of getting even more out of her creativity!
Two of my kids have used this and they both really enjoyed it.
So far, have just skimmed over this. Looks very promising and enjoyable. Looking forward to my daughters using these once 2021 starts.
I love this little book! It's a quick doodle or comment each day, each one different and unique. My son, unfortunately, is not giving it his best effort.. (sigh) But it would be fantastic for artsy or creative kids.
I bought these for my students. They like them so much that they were doing more than one doodle daily. I had to limit them, explaining it’s a “one a day” book! They laugh and show what they’ve doodled. Also it makes them think too!
It is a treat in the midst of core subjects!
