From the time your son or daughter is born, your little one seems to be in constant motion--you can almost see your baby growing up even as he or she sleeps! So it seems fitting that award-winning animator Yasmeen Ismail should turn her illustration skills toward helping you to record the precious memories as your baby's first year flickers past. The journal is filled with 144 pages of playful questions and writing prompts―from cataloging alternate names that were considered, to food likes and dislikes, to mapping the entrance of baby's first teeth―all illustrated in Ismail's painterly style. An assortment of archival paper gives the pages additional texture and tactile appeal. Some pages contain little envelopes for you to save special mementos, such as a lock of hair, or leaves from a walk in the park. Not only will it be something for a child to treasure as he or she grows older, but it makes recording these moments fun for parents as well. Printed in China.
