Are you a list writer? I know I am, and that it rubs off on my kids. So I was thrilled to find this book aimed at Tweens, so perfect for Boo.
Listful Thinking – list out your life.
This guided journal of lists is the prefect place to celebrate yourself and what makes you sparkle. As you write, you’ll discover what matters to you, and you’ll capture special moments in time that you’ll love looking back on in the future. You can create over 200 lists that span a huge range of subjects like the following:
*from tuba to fiddle to melodica, list all the instruments you’d love to jam out on
*List as many famous animals, fictions or real, as you can in 30 seconds!
*write a list of all the things you’d do if you were invisible for a day.
You can start this journal at the beginning or skip ahead to find the page that matches your mood. Be proud of who you are and who you’ll be!
As far as journals go, this one is unique and quite ingenious. Their are so many pages to scribble in your lists, each one with a decorated border so it’s pretty to look at too. The headings give you plenty of food for thought without being too complex. By filling it in a child will have something fun and insightful to read back later. Also, it will give the child a chance to order their feelings and thoughts on many different subjects.
It’s also a nice simple way of writing things down, it’s much easier to scribble down a quick list than write out a full page of text.
