940 Saturdays Review
There are 940 Saturdays between a child’s birth and the day he or she turns 18.
That may sound like a lot when there are adventures to plan and hours to fill. But as your child learns to walk, ride a bicycle, and drive, the years pass quickly. This beautiful package includes both a removable booklet with a thousand ideas for family activities that you and your child will love at every age, and a keepsake journal for preserving what you saw and did, thought and felt, so you can savor these memories in the years to come.
As a mother of three children I am fully aware of how precious time with my children is and am always looking for new things to do with them as well as ways to commemorate our time spent together, so 940 Saturdays was perfect for me! I absolutely love to journal and this book is just that, a journal. I have read several reviews that this book did not live up to expectations being that it IS basically a journal and not much of a book…however, I feel that this books description online is fairly accurate and the contents of this book should not have come as a surprise. I was very pleased with this book, I think that the cover is SUPER adorable, the book is nice and big with ample amounts of room for journaling your Saturday activities and as an added bonus includes developmental milestone information in the back, as well as a little pocket in the back of the book with an extra 940 Saturdays booklet full of Family Activities! While the family activities booklet might not have THE most original activities listed, I do feel that it is still informative and full of good suggestions I might have overlooked without it!
I am completely satisfied with this book and have already enjoyed journaling our activities! I think this book would make a sweet baby shower gift for any expectant parents as well as a nice gift for a parent of any young child! I suggest picking this book up if journaling your children’s milestones and activities is something you enjoy…I Know that this will be a keepsake I treasure for the rest of my days!
