I bought this for my sister for her and her son. It is a nice book for someone to always remember the stories that one has told. It has a lot of open ended questions that can lead to all kinds of discussion. It would be perfect as a baby shower gift!

I use this book to record memories from my mom. But the problem is that most of these questions are for moms who grew up in middle to upper class in the USA. There isn't any varied cultural questions.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Conversations with My Father and Mother:

          My mother has begun answering the book which has become such a topic of conversation for us. It's truly a gift because it asks things I wouldn't think of and has really brought us closer. It's a gift for her that is actually a gift to me.

            After years of harassing my dad to write his stories down, he now has prompts to help him. He and I have plans to sit down and work through the book together because he has led an incredible life that needs to be documented.

              My parents have always been quiet, people of few words. They were confused about the book, or maybe concerned. However, both have started to complete and I feel as though it will fill in the blanks, and even more importantly be there when they aren't.

                    My Dad and I have a standing date that everytime I come over we do a page together. I love hearing the stories he tells me, especially if it was embarrassing because he gets all red and has a huge smile on his face. It will be something that I will always treasure.

                      What do you get the man that has everything? Something like this! My dad called me after he received it and said it was the most thoughtful gift he has ever been given. My parents have been divorced my entire life, so I didn't get to spend much time with my dad growing up. Now my father has Lyme disease and its damaging his memory. This book is going to provide us with many amazing conversations and I will be able to hold onto the memories for ever.
