Editorial Reviews

2018 National Parenting Product Awards Winner “A visually adorable and joyful book full of inspiring and creative ideas for seeing, gathering, and experimenting. You will stay motivated to create for a long time!” — Jennifer Orkin Lewis, artist and illustrator at augustwren.com “A great roadmap for getting started with journaling. These thoughtful writing prompts and playful art activities will inspire and engage!” — Susan Schwake, best-selling author of Art Lab for Kids series “My family’s favorite kind of any-age book. These friendly, fabulous, and imaginative prompts are great for journaling but they’re also approachably small, stand-alone creative projects. You’ll soon be busy charting your world of favorite things and places and words and dreams.” — Catherine Newman, author of Waiting for Birdy and Catastrophic Happiness “I dare you to make it halfway through this book without running to grab your journal and a pencil! This trove of inspiring and practical ideas encourages us to push our creative boundaries and revel in the play between words and pictures.” — Alexandra Kennedy, executive director of the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art “Transcendent! At a time when all of us — children and adults — are deluged with pixels and information, Emily Neuburger inspires us to use a journal to notice, feel, connect, and reflect.” — Sam Intrator, professor of education and child study at Smith College
