This book is just the sort of book that I’d like to buy for all the Middle-Grade Girls in my life. More than just a journal, the prompts for both writing and drawing are creative, thought-provoking, and relevant.
As I paged through, I thought about how all of the lessons in this book are things that all girls would benefit from reading. A lot of them are things that left me nodding because I may or may not have explicitly talked about them with my daughter, but I agreed and hoped that she somehow internalized them without an actual conversation. The top three themes are Kindness, Creativity, and Confidence. All virtues that girls need today more than ever.
Meant as a companion piece to Kate Parker’s book of the same name, it can stand alone, but I encourage you to read both books.
Like all Workman books, the graphics and drawings are well thought out and the paper is thick enough that your writing shouldn’t bleed through. You’d be surprised how many kids journals/workbook type books where this is not the case.
Please note that I received a free advance E ARC of this book from the publisher without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
