Synopsis:

This new book is an interactive diary for families to complete together. Filled with clever questions that will engage parents and kids alike, this illustrated journal encourages families to capture the essence of their lives during the present moment. It’s the seemingly mundane things - the sleep patterns, school choices, and family rhythms and rituals - that make up the fabric of daily life; and Noll captures this with playful prompts, including: 

- The last time we laughed out loud was because…    
- What does family dinner look like? Who talks the most? The least? 
- Inside jokes. Family sayings. And things only our family gets (Spill it): 
- Things we appreciate about each family member: 
- Something crazy that happened this month 

Designed for families of all ages, LOOK AT US NOW will foster connection, reflection, and creative fun.

Review:

This is a FUN book, as you can see from the samples above, that would be perfect for filling that time in the car with the kids, past the 2 video, license plate, I spy limit of your sanity! Not only does it help pass the time, but it makes your kids think AND practice their writing and spelling- AHA! A fun activity that helps keep thos brains going over the Summer. In fact, it would be fun to fill out a page every day during the Summer too, as a way of making a special mememto and memoir, rolled into one! Or have the kids fill it out and give it to Mom for Mother's Day, or Dad for Father's Day! It's a fun FAMILY activity and we can't recommend it enough!
