Giveaway! Life According to Me

by

The Divas were given the AWESOME opportunity to review Somewhat Simple Stephanie’s new E-Book! {Diva Tara wanted me to put a plug in here for Stephanie – she is one of Tara’s FAV Blog Land friends!! So you definitely need to read on!!}  This ebook is called “Life According to Me” and is a FABULOUS way to get those kids of ours journaling! Not only is writing good for them, but it is SO FUN for us to go back and read later all of the cute things that were going on in their head. I was really good at keeping journals for my kids when they were toddlers and I am so glad I did now because they LOVE to hear stories about themselves. It makes all that writing worth it!

It’s more than a boring journal with lined pages- it is fun & interactive with 30 pages of daily prompts, fill-in-the-blanks, and spaces for kids to draw and doodle. 

Older kids can write their thoughts and little kids can use the space to draw pictures OR you can encourage them to do a combination of both!

Over the holidays, we went home to visit my parents.  While we were there, my mom had a few boxes of things for me to go through.  One of the boxes had journals I had written in growing up.  It was so fun to read what I had written about myself decades before.  There were so many details in these journals that I had long since forgotten- friends I’d had, activities I had been in, and my opinions about all sorts of things.  Reading details of my life made me reflect on how I have become the person that I am. I want my own children to have this same experience and that is why I think this book that Stephanie created is so great! 

“Life According to Me” could also be a great addition to any homeschooling lesson plan. It encourages children to express themselves in a non-threatening, no pressure way, and allows an opportunity to teach writing content. At our house, we printed out the e-book, then took the title page and glued it to the front of a folder with fasteners. We then took all the pages, ran them through our three-hole punch, and inserted them into the folder. Each child has their own “Life According to Me” journal and have been writing in them daily. It’s so fun to read what’s on their mind! And with the note sections included on each page, they can write a note to Mom, Dad, one of their siblings, a friend, or even themselves!

From my daughter’s journal…

“A note to: myself. I need to try and remember if someone is mean to JUST BE NICE!”

I learned from her writing that she also thinks her four-year-old brother is the silliest person she knows, and according to her… I’m the best mom in the whole world! Gotta love it!
