Journal Buddies Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

As a little girl I always loved to write in a diary or a journal. It is so nice to have a place where you can write down your private thoughts and dreams. I was recently given the chance to review Journal Buddies - A Girl's Journal for Sharing and Celebrating Magnificence. My daughter is about to turn seven and I think it is time that she starts writing in a journal. Journal Buddies is not your ordinary journal! It guides your child of what to write about all the while strengthening their self esteem, teaching them to build healthy relationships, and creating a positive outlook on life.

Each journal entry has a page where you can write three traits you like about your "buddy" and your buddy can write three traits she likes about you. I tried this with Bella and I think it really boosted her self esteem! It's easy for us as moms to think our kids are amazing but it makes a big difference to our kids when we say those things out loud! I love that this journal is something that she will be able to look at for years to come!
