Love the simplicity of this

This is a great place to collect important memories and keepsakes in a compact way.

One thing that is cool is that it's set up for kids and parents to do together. There are about 3 pages and an envelope within the spiral bound book for each school year.

The first page is a snapshot of the year. There's a place to put the child's photo, and stats including school name, teachers, and a few lines for parents' notes about the year. There's a place at the bottom for "My Signature" which is a fun feature. I know that whenever I see my 11-year-old scrawl inside a book, or my 15-year-old signature on a paper it brings back major memories.

The second page is written from the child's point of view. For the elementary years, it includes a scorecard for 4 different subjects, my friends, best thing about this year, what I'm good at, and when I grow up. The secondary years get a little more "real" adding hobbies and activities, this was a big bummer, and summer plans (instead of what I want to be when I grow up).

The third page is a pocket, with suggestions of unique items to include which will show their their growth: sample artwork, awards, note to my future self, a piece of string as long as I am tall, tracing of my hand, a school nametag, a newspaper headline or story, and of course a report card. The secondary years add a note or email from a good friend and replace nametag with school ID.

The back of the pocket is lined, adding another spot for some journaling. The pocket flaps and closes to keep everything secure.

Thanks for the review Jennifer! This would be great with my daughter. She's only 18 months and I'm starting to realize that her stuff is taking over already and all the little keepsakes are all over the place, this would keep it organized!
