Book Description

1 Nov 2007
Start this at birth, wrap it up at eighteen, fill it out each year in between.

This is not anything like a baby book. It’s a birthday book! It was born from the simple idea that birthdays provide the perfect annual opportunity to preserve a sweet moment in time as your child changes from year to year. So it’s a multi-layered confection: annual touchstone, cherished ritual, and eternal keepsake. This journal provides fun, fast, and casual birthday activities for ages 1-18 as well as space to stick birthday photos and a random picture from each year, amusing and thought-provoking questions to ask your kid, and a time-capsule envelope for stashing away odds and ends (artwork, school papers, hand tracings, birthday cards, invitations, and other memorabilia).

From toddler hood to young adulthood to every hood in between, you’ll return to the same four activities for each birthday. The questions prompts, and tone may shift each year, but the essence intentionally remains intact.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea! 15 Feb 2009
I love this book!! I have two small boys and wanted a way to record their lives beyond the normal baby record books which stop at a year old. This allows a record every year on their birthday, an interview with the child (from 3 upwards!) about their thoughts on friends, home etc It also includes an envelope for each year to put significant mementoes and things like their footprint, string the same length that they are.
I think this would make a really lovely 1st birthday present. The only shame is that as it is an American book the spelling is American and it includes things like a space for your driving licence on your 16th birthday. Small points though, I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for keeping those memories 16 July 2012
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I have had this for a while and have only just started to fill it in for my five year old son. I love it, he will love it. I have the filled in pregnancy books, the filled in baby books but nothing for beyond. I bought this and the school one, to help preserve the memories of fun times.

I love the little interview pages, they have different questions so when I ask my five year old the questions I should have asked him at 4 he won't be repeating himself, so don't worry if your child has had a few birthdays already, this books is still great.

I love it so much I have just ordered another copy to start with my two year old son.

Now off to print out some photos to put in the books time capsule pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars something to treasure 23 May 2011
I really like this keepsake book and it doesn't take much time to do. Each year has a little pocket to keep things like birthday invites, wish list, little letters from friends that would just end up in the bin but in years to come will be a treasured memory.Quality of the book is lovely and the pages nicely illistrated. I'm not a scrapbook person but like the idea of the journal as it was something that my mum did. Newspaper clippings from a school trip or someone coming to visit the school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, lovely idea. 22 Nov 2010
By Pap
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I got the birthday book at the same time as the belly book in my first pregnancy - which may sound a bit strange but you never know when companies will stop making things and I thought it'd be nice to have sort-of matching stuff!
As with the belly book, it is for an American audience for example getting a driving licence (license!) on 16th birthday but it's all stuff that can be overlooked. There is an 'interview' for each birthday (up to 18th) with different questions. I love the 9th birthday year where there is a 'what was cool then...and now' for the grown up and the kid to fill in! There's also a pocket for each year for you to include things like party invitations, school reports and a genius idea of including a quick note from the current self to the eighteen year old self!
The presentation of the book is lovely and would suit boy or girl. My only negative would be that this book will be no surprise present on their 18th birthday. Each year there is the interview process for the child and even sections for them to write/draw in the book - I find it hard to believe that you'll get a 16, 17 or 18 year old to sit down long enough to answer lots of questions without them asking what you're doing! Saying that, I'll be giving it a go!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a brilliant idea! 22 Aug 2012
This is such a great product, what a lovely idea
You can document every birthday from 1 - 18, there is an envelope for each year where you can put any special memories of the year (the one I liked best was a piece of string the height of your child)
Made me cry reading some of the questions that you will ask your child as they get older when you interview them on their birthday.
The only point that I disagree with - I am never going to give this to my son on his 18th, this is strictly a momento for Mummy!

This is the most perfect keepsake present

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have 22 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I like this book, nice detail but doesnt take too long to complete each section. I like that there is a pocket envelope to keep things like the invitations & bits & bobs that will be nice to look at in years to come. Good quality & would recommend for a sentimental Mum & or Dad!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 1st birthday gift 11 Jun 2012
I've bought this book many times to give as a 1st birthday present. It's original and fun for the parents and hopefully will be appreciated by the child, following their 18th birthday. I had a child last year and bought one for ourselves. It's quite fun to complete and provides a good "home" for the materials that each and every parent already holds on to.

If you don't want to buy toys or clothes and be original then this is the gift I recommend!
