Journal Buddies Review and Giveaway...

Cool For School Giveaway #19

A little bit about the creator of Journal Buddies:
"Jill Schoenberg was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Youth Studies and Sociology from the University of Minnesota. She is passionate about creating tools for kids to help them develop their self-esteem. And she loves creative journaling!
Her professional experience includes more than seven years of working directly with young people — helping them to understand and strengthen their self-esteem, creative talents and life-skills."

About Journal Buddies:
"There is simply no more effective way to improve your child’s sense of self esteem other than spending quality, meaningful time together. Creating a journal together creates a cherished self-esteem building keepsake that may be reflected upon – time and again – by both you and your special girl.
With Journal Buddies, you take the simple and fun self-esteem building activity of sharing what you admire and love about your girl and you make the time to formalize it once a day for 30 days in a journal.Shared, Creative Journaling
The Journal Buddies experience is all about self-expression coupled with focusing on and celebrating the positives while completing a guided, creative journal together with your special girl! I know you’ll agree that shared, creative journaling sounds like a great self-esteem strengthening and improving activity for you and your precious child. Self-esteem building and journaling have never been this much fun. Journal Buddies is fun, creative and down-right enjoyable activity to share with your special child. You’re going to love this self-esteem tool and so will your daughter."

What we thought: I thought this was a really neat product. It is a great product intended to build your child's self-esteem while at the same time strengthening the bond between parent and child. The journal is easy to use and super fun too! It is a great tool to help your child look within themselves and find the traits that make them special and someone worthy of love and companionship. I wish Journal Buddies had been around when I was younger and I'm really excited to use this with A when she gets a little older. This book is a great introduction into journaling, offering writing topics and presenting the reader with a few insightful questions to answer each day. ABCD Diaries gives Journal Buddies an A+ and our Cool For School Seal of Approval!!

Buy It: You can find Journal Buddies for your children at Amazon.com

Win It: Jill has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader a copy of Journal Buddies (for girl or boy)! To enter, tell us who you would share Journal Buddies with.
