Childhood Chronicle

With this DIY journal, your child or grandchild acts as author, illustrator, and main character in their own unique adventure. It's filled with playful prompts and 32 interactive, offline activities like a "what if you were President" section where kids choose their own Cabinet, or a place to draw their own no-tech selfie. In addition to the imaginative fun any young person will have creating this book, when completed, you'll want to safely store this trophy of achievement because it's going to be a great read when the author is an adult.

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.
