THE BOOK OF YOU: A Record of Childhood Reviews

It looks great and inviting. I think it’s really great concept, some of the questions are tricky for the different ages. The cover is very durable and makes it feel very good quality. It’s great quality inside and out. It really was lovely to ask the questions as they’re different to what we would ask on a day to day basis and something they can look back on in years to come.  They did enjoy recording special memories. They struggled at first but soon thought of something to fill the space. I loved writing in different memories of the children in their early stages. Plenty of giggles and embarrassment from my older child!! Absolutely agree this book will be used for many years and will be a cherished possession.  I would have loved a book like this from my childhood.  My children are 9 & 7 year5s and I used different colour pens to fill each response in, they loved it but were asking why I had so many questions! They both loved spending time with me having one to one and chatting about the past year of events. I think it’s a great idea, I have photo albums but this is more special as you record each year and see the changes in each child. I was aware this company supports the NCT and anything to do with help and support to new parents is great. Great value for money. I loved sitting with each child and asking different questions to keep their minds going and to recall all the fun memories of the past year. I would buy this.  It is a great addition to keeping the memories but also great for when the girls are older to read back on their answers. I would definitely recommend as my daughters love it. Great quality, plenty of space for their answers and extra quality time with the children. Fast delivery, packaged well, great communication, bright colourful cover, interesting questions, great fun filling it in. Laura Whalin – Emily & Maisie 9 & 7 Years

It was packaged well and felt like a nice treat when I opened it up. That lovely bright flash of green on the cover was lovely! I think that it’s a great concept and an ideal way to give someone with a new baby a gift that is something different. As it spans 16 years, it can actually be given at any time to record those special little milestones and memories. When ordering your book, there are lots of different cover colours to choose from in bright shades. Whether you want something gender specific or more neutral. We chose the bright green and love it. Inside, each year is laid out simply and clearly with plenty of room to fill everything in. The paper is of lovely quality and just the right thickness. The cover has a lovely woven texture to the material.  My son was 2 in November, so I have gone back and updated the pages from his first and second birthdays. It was nice to look back at photos and remember those memories and make note of them for the future. My little boy loved being able to make his mark and do his hand and footprint in the book! It’s great to be able to record these answers, as they get forgotten, as with my older children. It’ll be even better being able to look back afterwards! As just 2, he is a little young yet to answer himself, but sure this will be great as he gets older.  Definitely agree will be using this book for many years to come. It covers such a long time; it’s the perfect gift for a new baby or a Christening gift. Every year will be a lovely look back as you record new memories. My little boy is 2 so enjoyed the handprints but wasn’t that bothered about the other bits. I loved spending time recording the info and memories though! It’s really good quality, from the cover, to the pages to the beautiful content and space inside. Really well laid out and perfect for use for years. I did read they support the NCT and it would definitely influence me when purchasing. It’s always good to support great causes like this where you can. Although £25 may seem a lot, it does cover 16 years of memories and recording, so isn’t really and all of the materials used are of a high quality. My favourite bit was the questions and memory bits to fill in. The questions are really well thought out and will make looking back at memories a lovely time. I would buy this. We have one for my little boy now and I have a Christening coming up that I think it would be perfect for! I have shown all of my friends and told them what a fab idea it is. So many things are forgotten from childhood, so this is a perfect way of recording all those little memories. It also makes a brilliant and different gift for a new parent for their baby – something they can start straight away with and continue to use for 16 years!! Kelly Walker – Tristan 2 Years

This arrives and was well packed, lovely bright cover and looked very high quality. I think this is a lovely idea.  Not only can you record memories now it takes you up to 16 years so will be used for a very long time. Like the design on the book, bright cover, good quality pages and lots to complete for the children. My children did enjoy putting special notes in this book and these memories will be saved for the future.  Something for them to look back on as they grow older.  Great idea as you do forget some of the milestones as a child and growing up, and this way they can be saved and cherished forever. My children really enjoyed recording special events, and will be good to see their reaction when they look back in a few years’ time. They also enjoyed answering the fun questions and we had some laughs too when answering these and filling out the answers. With this book you can continue to use and log so many things that happen and change your life over the coming year which is wonderful for all of us.  Just loved sitting down sharing these moments with my children and putting them in this keep sake book to look back on in the future. This certainly will be a cherished possession.  I think it would make ideal gift for new mum, toddlers and older children.  We all have pictures but sometimes we have those special moments that happen and this enables you to record and remember.  Never miss a fleeting moment, a special event or a special poem as it can all be recorded in this book. My twins are 6 years old and they have loved writing in this book and enjoyed the fun questions too.  We have ensured both put notes etc. in this book and highlighted them in different colours. The quality of the book is excellent. It is well presented, great content, good space to write and put in your special notes and pics and will last for many years to come.  I was aware they support the NCT and this is always good to know and commend them for their support.  When you first see the price you think it is high but when you look at what you have, the memories you can list and the time you all spend together completing this book it is worth every penny. I would buy this and am going to buy for my niece who is 10 years old as I think she will love it. I have also recommended to friends and family. The perfect book to recollect those special moments in your children’s lives as they grow and develop.  A great book to keep and look back and remember in years to come too.  We all loved it.
