Journal Buddies ~Review and Giveaway~
A Boy's Journal for Discovering and Sharing Excellence By: Jill Schoenburg
Journal Buddies is a Mom's Choice Awards® Silver Recipient and is a fun, interactive journal intended to help adults (parents, teachers, mentors...) build and strengthen a boy's self-esteem. This meaningful and creative journal is appropriate for kids ages 7 - 14 and may be used peer-to-peer, child-to-parent, student-to-adult or any combination thereof. These powerful but simple journals are truly a fresh and invigorating take on journal keeping.
My thougths: Journal Buddies is a wonderful resource for parents. This is not an ordinary journal, this journal is simple and powerful. This is an outstanding way to build self esteem and promote confidence. This journal is unique as it is interactive and promotes creative journaling in a fun way. To add excitement, this journal is done with a buddy. The child's buddy can be a friend, parent,relative, teacher or anyone that they choose. They can even have different buddies each day if they choose to. They get to improve their self steem by focusing on the qualities,traits and talents that they like about themselves and their buddy. This is a fun way for children to express themselves and their feelings. When this journal is completed, this makes a great keepsake. What is great is that these Journal Buddies are designed just for Girls or Just for Boys.
Better Yet: One lucky reader can win an autographed Copy of Journal Buddies for Boys by Jill Schoenburg.
