To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
1.0 out of 5 starsDisappointed. Print-on-demand, and it shows.

REALLY disappointed with this journal. I loved the idea, and was hoping to use it with my 9 year old son, but the journal is very overpriced (I paid nearly 10 GBP including postage) and it's very poorly thought out and presented. (I could have come up with something better than this, in an afternoon on the computer...) It would have been better if there were more lines to write on in the journal, instead of boxes. It's recommended for 9 years plus, I believe, but it doesn't encourage a lot of writing - many of the entries call for pictures/photos. Not impressed. I'm going to look into sending it back but it came from the US, and it's print-on-demand so I'm guessing it won't be possible. I like the "Q&A a day for kids" diary A LOT better (which I bought for my 7 year old, but would have been ideal for both ages). Really disappointed. Don't waste your money.
It's a very cute back and forth journal. I have another one that I bought for my eldest son and this is for my youngest. I'm looking forward to doing it with him and has great age appropriate activities. It is in American English, but doesn't really interfere with the usability for those of us in the UK. I'm very happy with it.
I bought this for my daughter and I wished I could have had this for me to have done with all my children. Absolutely fantastic way to record memories and encourage open communication with your children. Love it
I bought this book for my son's 8th birthday for me and him to do together. We have filled in a little bit and done some colouring together so far. Loads of really quirky pages to fill in and colouring. We really enjoyed it so far. Really good mum and son bonding time and mindfulness.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat tool and wonderful keepsake

I love the journals that Katie Clemons designs and this is no exception. There are lots of prompts to get the creative juices flowing and the imagination fired up. This mother and son journal is a great way to get an insight into your child - things you wouldn't normally talk about in every day conversation come up whilst exchanging thoughts in this journal. A great tool to get your son writing - and a wonderful way to bond.
