Font and writing lines too small

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Great questions

Cons

  • Small font
  • Small space to write

Best Uses

  • Gift for grandparent

Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

Got this for grandparents and love the questions - my grandfather was very excited about it and started telling stories right away that I had never heard. The only drawbacks are that the font is small for an older person to read and the lines for writing are so close together that they would have to write very small which is sometimes hard for an older person.

      Priceless!

      By 

      from Paulding, OH

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

      My mother-in-law loves books, genealogy and history. She very proud of her family and loves to share stories. When she passes away, I know I'll never be able to recall all of the stories she has to share with my kids. This book is a great prompt for her to write down her life story and share it with her grand kids and their kids and so on. It's priceless. I wish my grandparents would have left me something like this.

        Best Uses

          Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

          I liked how organized all of the different sections were. This made it easier for my grandparents to fill out. They already have a hard time remembering things as it is.

          Fun, reflective activity

          By 

          from New Oxford, PA

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Lots of different "chapters" to write about

          Cons

          • Some chapters (kids) I won't get to

          Best Uses

          • Reflecting on your life so far

          Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

          After going through my grandparents' house after they died, I realized what a great keepsake this journal will be some day after I am gone. Plus, it allowed me to reflect on my life so far - a very cathartic experience.
