Looking for a gift for a mom—for Mother’s Day or a baby shower? This gorgeous journal provides a special place to answer your child’s inevitable questions about: “What was I like when I was little?”
Jot down the things that you remember most about those first Saturdays with the new baby, what it was like to explore the world with your toddler, and how it felt to send your little buddy off to school for the first time.
Illustrated by Brooklyn-based artist Samantha Hahn, Stories for My Child: A Mother’s Memory Journal provides an opportunity to create a beautiful keepsake. It contains dozens of prompts that can be filled in at any stage. More than a record of milestones, this journal is a collection of your experiences as a mother, filled with stories that your child will one day treasure.
This is simply a precious keepsake designed to become a family heirloom. You’ll be eager to follow the prompts and share your stories with your child (or children). Some pages have sweet quotes from wise women like Maya Angelou and Jean de Brunhoff that may bring a knowing smile to your face or a tear to your eye. Record, mindfully, the moments that have meaning in your life and collect them here to share with your children in a really special way. Your child will cherish this journal for a lifetime.
Stories for My Child is published in conjunction with A Mother Is a Story, a stunning collection of hand-lettered quotes and artwork celebrating every chapter of motherhood. Together or separately, they make the perfect gift for mom on Mother’s Day, at baby showers, or any day, anytime.
