Baby Talk

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.

        The description states this is a hard bound book but it is a paperback. It is being returned because I can't imagine keeping a memory book that's in this format.

                Comments about BABY BOOK BY YASMEEN ISMAIL:

                As the Godmother, I gave this wonderfully designed book to a young couple for the Baptism of their first child. As a great-grandmother, and Godmother for many over the years, I have seen many Baby Journal book designs. The illustrations by Yasmeen Ismail and the hand-fashioned design by April are lovely. But more than that, the many prompts help the parents to catalogue what significant events happen in new baby's life so they can be recorded. Small paper pockets are included to tuck away a tiny lock of hair, the fallen tooth, a sea-shell from the first beach trip: all things that will be priceless to the family forever. Trust me -- I know this. This book is precious and fun, just like your baby.

                      Perfect as a Baby Shower gift; different from other journals I've seen.

                      Really love this book to keep track of our little one! One of the charts is in kg, but other than that it's perfect!
