The Story Of Us

A journal through childhood for the first 18 years together



A multi-award-winning childhood journal covering the first 18 years together, designed to help you create a unique keepsake your child will treasure forever.

This fabric-covered, beautifully colour illustrated journal, complete with foil blocking detail, has been lovingly created featuring charming little rabbits, penguins, llamas and other animals. It references parent details, but not specifically mothers or fathers, and is therefore suitable for all families. With spaces for photos and memorabilia, it provides prompts to help parents chronicle family experiences and unrepeatable moments, including the child’s growth, development and personality, precious family memories and the wonderful emotional journey.

As a parent, there’s often little time to sit down and reflect, let alone write down key memories. With The Story Of Us, start a new tradition and allow just an hour or two each year, perhaps on your child’s birthday, to reminisce about the year gone by. The guided prompts will help you to record what would otherwise so easily get forgotten. Once completed, the journal can be passed on to your child as a very precious keepsake.

• A section per year of your child’s life
• Spaces for precious photos
• Captures your child’s growth, development and personality, plus family memories
• Prompts to reflect on how you feel about the year, to record family adventures, hopes and dreams as well as predictions
• Carefully worded prompts mean that The Story Of Us is suitable for journaling the childhood of an adopted child
• Removable printed belly band

As well as for your own child, The Story Of Us makes a lasting gift for any new baby celebration such as a baby shower, christening or naming ceremony, or for a first birthday.

The perfect gift to follow pregnancy and first year journal, Bump To Birthday. It also coordinates beautifully with the Hopes & Wishes For You gift book.

Made with paper & love, from you to me.

Why we love it

We love that this journal follows on from Bump To Birthday, but it doesn’t have to. The journal is high quality, with a lovely fabric and gold cover, and thick internal pages. Each page is beautifully illustrated, with a lovely section for each year to be completed. The prompts are well thought through and there’s space for photographs. A great way to celebrate a child’s arrival.
