for my son (0-18 years)
Our Story, for my Son is an award-winning 0-18 years childhood journal to help you create a keepsake your child will treasure forever.
Journaling those valuable childhood memories before they slip through your fingers can be time-consuming. As a parent there’s little time to sit down and reflect and write down those key memories.
Our Story makes this easy. Allow just an hour or two each year, perhaps on your child’s birthday, to reminisce about the year gone by. Once completed, the journal can be given to the 18 year old child as a keepsake to treasure.
