    What a fun idea to ask your child the same question but with one year spanning each of the responses! And to have a full year of questions to ask- this is a priceless resource for bonding and really getting to know the creative mind of your child. I loved the array of themes for the questions, and can't wait to get started with my daughters. While some questions seem geared towards older kids, with a little explanation or adaptation they would work for younger kids as well.

The quality of the book is great, it's a nice hardback with a slot for putting a family photo in the cover, and the pages are a good weight. This is an awesome activity keepsake that would make a thoughtful gift! (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)

Then one year later, you use the second set of blank lines to record the same child's answer to the same question. You repeat this the third year recording the answer in the third portion of lines. The volume is hardcover and has very sturdy binding so it will most likely last through daily use for three years. The cover design will appeal to either boys or girls. And a means of personalization of the book is provided via the square in the cover in which a picture of the child may be inserted. The concept of providing a means to address your child's development of emotional, spiritual, and social thinking is certainly worth trying and the recorded comments for each day's question will certainly be a future treasure. A plethora of questions is available and they run the gamut from "What game do you like to play?" to "What is your favorite thing God created?". I do not think there are any Scripture verses in the book so the Spiritual aspect of this publication will be the emphasis or application that parents insert on their own as the subject arises. Teachable moments exist and one must always be ready to avail themselves of it. In multiple child families, this would be a nice family exercise, providing the child/children can all write and express themselves. Each child can have his own book in which they write their own thoughts. Family discussion can be held but for the book to be unique to the individual child, the discussion should state that each opinion is worthy of expression. For those willing to try a project with their child that would last three years, this is certainly worth pursuing. DISCOSURE: I received a complimentary copy from WaterbrookMultnomah to facilitate a review. Opinions are my own and are freely given.

    This book is becoming a favorite family ritual. We’ve enjoyed going through the daily questions with our four kids. Some of the questions are deeper while others are just fun (like, “What’s your favorite t-shirt?”). But all of the questions lead to good conversation and quality family time. #PRHpartner #sponsored

If you’ve been a part of a church where I’ve worked with kids, you know that I talk a lot about using your time with your kids wisely. I am a huge advocate of using little times throughout the day to talk with your kids. We often waste moments in the car, mealtimes, and bedtimes by not having spiritual conversations with your kids. I am a big proponent of reclaiming those times to have good discussions. But that’s not exactly what this book does. It doesn’t reclaim a time. It helps you create a time, and make a habit of creating those times. The layout of the book is simple. 365 different questions, including: What makes you feel brave? What do you like to do? If you had a cardboard box, what would you do with it? These are simple questions. They’re easy to answer. But in asking and answering, you are having a conversation with your child. You’re opening space to build your relationship and dive into spiritual matters. But the book doesn’t stop there. Under each question is enough space for three separate answers—one for each year. That’s right, for 365 days a year for three straight years, you’ll ask these questions. If you assume that each question takes five minutes, you’ve now opened up over 90 hours of additional conversation time with your kids. That’s awesome! And, since the answers will change each year, you’ve got a keepsake when you are done. You’ve got a book of 1,095 examples of your child’s growth, their changes in thinking, and their changes in how they think about God. I would highly recommend this book for all of you parents out there!

Open up the book to the current date and start asking a question. This interactive journal has space for asking the question for three years. The idea is that you are creating a time capsule of responses and can see how your child's personality and interests have changed over time as the vary year after year. Here are a couple examples of questions that are asked in the book: What is your favorite smell? What do you do when you are bored? What do you know about Jesus? This is a spiritual journal so there are a few Christian-based questions asked. I like that the Daily Question For You and Your Child journal has a place to slip a picture into the front cover to turn it into a frame. One could change the picture every day and have a sort of time capsule of the pictures to go with the responses. We have just one child so this would work well for us. I think people with more than one child could buy journals designated for each child to have their own, or they could respond with answers for more than one child if they think there is enough space in each day's answer area and include a picture of all of the children. I think this could make a fun Christmas or birthday gift too. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. #partner

    This book is just awesome! I loved it from the moment I pulled it from its wrapper. Chock full of a variety of questions parents can ask their children, from seemingly mundane to thought provoking questions, truly this book is a winner. Even better, there is space on each page to jot down your child’s answer; and there are 3 spaces! Why 3 spaces?

For the younger child, I can see crayons and paper coming into play. For older children, the questions make for good discussions. My fifteen year old responded idk to my text question; I commented that it was a bit of a thinking question. He agreed. I suggested we think on it a bit. Sadly, I forgot to follow through. My 32 year old kind of laughed at me when I asked, “what would you like to hear me say more often?” He then responded “I don’t have to pay my share of the cell phone bill this month!” Children grown or no children to converse with? That’s ok, I think an adult could use this as a kind of devotional, coming back to it 5 to 10 years later just to see if or how their answers may have changed.

The pages are like diary entries with a each day having a place to put a response for each of three years. I think this is wonderful as children can change their responses each year when asked. Some of the responses involve writing a short story about an object, or to say what makes them feel a certain way, like joyful. There are also questions about their creativity or telling about traditions. This is just a tiny bit compared to what else this book has in it. I wish I had a book like this when my children were small, but I am so glad it is available today. For parents, grandparents or those that care for children I feel this is a special way to spend some one-on-one time with a child in your life. I highly recommend it.

This volume consists of 365 questions organized in a page-a-day format that is intended to take three years (there are no questions for February 29th, so no leap day question).  Each year is allotted five lines of text, which makes some of the questions difficult to answer--including a request for a story as well as a silly poem, both of which may take longer than the space provided.  The questions themselves are very random as well--it is to be expected that there should be plenty of questions about Christmas in December, and there are, as well as plenty of holiday-themed questions around various holidays, and it is unsurprising that a Christian publisher would post a lot about Jesus (though comparatively little about God the Father and nothing about the Holy Spirit, which seems a matter that kids would not easily understand).  There are also a variety of questions about related topics that appear in various forms over and over again, like questions concerning fears and bravery, or friends, or what kids think about the person asking them questions or growing up in general or dreams and fantasies.  Part of the thrill of the book, one suspects, is that the answers could change very dramatically over the course of three years even if the answers remain the same. That said, I have somewhat mixed feelings about the questions myself.  Even if I had children, for example, I could not see myself wanting to ask precisely the questions asked, especially given that there is a great deal of attention here paid to pagan festivals and customs, not only Christmas and Easter (as opposed to biblical holy days) but even such matters as New Years' resolutions.  Likewise, the way that the book has such a skewed perspective of the nature of God in that everything in the book relates to Jesus is more than a little bit off-putting.  This book is likely to be enjoyed and celebrated by many, and a great many of the questions are thoughtful and interesting, and well worth finding the answer of, but the book as a whole and its overall tone and balance is something that I cannot wholeheartedly approve of.  Nevertheless, if one comes from an Evangelical household that holds to no rigorous beliefs about the Sabbath or biblical holy days and has a rather common focus on Jesus Christ, there will be much here for them to appreciate asking their little ones, though.

Geared toward calm, enlightening, and peaceful conversations, children ages four to twelve years old would benefit, although any aged reader may find it interesting and creative. After a front flap to insert a photo, ownership page, and introduction, one page is dedicated to every day of the year with monthly division pages. Having no pictures included, the top of each page has the date with a short question that is asked. There are three sections of five blank lines each that cover three years to write down answers to the question. ~ Why ~ This is an ideal way for an adult to read out loud the day’s question to a young child and write down his or her response. Because it covers three years of journaling, it records a child’s thoughts, fears, accomplishments, growth, and thinking about a topic. It would be an excellent socialization tool at the dinner table, bedtime, or during a time that promotes talking. Here are some engaging questions asked: What makes you feel brave? What is the biggest thing you can jump over? If you could be a superhero, which one would you be? Who makes you laugh the most? Do you think you are competitive? Why? ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not like to journal may not want to spend the time and effort with this book. There are some questions that young ones may not understand based on its comprehensive wording. If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you may not want to ask some questions to your child. However, there are only two to four per month, and they are not too in depth. Some of the questions are: What is your favorite Bible story? Why? What do you think heaven will be like? Who can you pray for tonight? What do you need most from Jesus today? How does God communicate with you? ~ Wish ~ A few of the questions may not be able to be answered in five lines. Some of these include: Write a story about a puppy. Make up a short story about a robot. Make up a short story about a talking grapefruit. Make up a short story about going into space. ~ Want ~ By stimulating thoughts and concepts with young ones, this is a creative book that starts the process of not only thinking about how a young one acts, feels, thinks, and reacts, but it also promotes learning and knowing about God. Having read a similar shorter book to our five-year-old granddaughter who was captivated by being asked eclectic questions, I think this would be a fun parent/child project both would enjoy. Rated: 4.5 of 5 stars Thanks to WaterBook and Multnomah Book Launch Team for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

I would recommend getting one book for each of your children. You can record their words when they are young and as they are able they can write down their own answers. I love the questions! They are thoughtful and have the potential to prompt great conversations. Some questions are just fun and silly, while others are thought-provoking and have the potential to reveal your child's heart as you listen to their answer. The questions could be read at the dinner table each day or at bedtime each night. Or whenever it works best for you. They are so simple that if you miss a few days it would be easy to just ask a few questions at one time to get caught back up. There are 365 Questions, here is just a handful: Who do you think needs a hug today? If you could spend an hour as any animal, what animal would you pick? Do you prefer to build snowmen or have snowball fights? If you could ask Jesus a question, what would you ask him? What makes you sad? What is something you'd like to know how to make? What do you wish I did more of? What do you wish you could spend less time doing? If you could meet someone from the Bible, who would it be? What is the first memory you can think of? What is hard for you right now? How can I help you with it? Some who have reviewed this book have stated that the drawback, like so many other things begun with good intentions, is that it has the potential to be just one more thing on our already too long list of to-dos. But I think it is something so precious it is well worth the effort to get this book and begin making memories with your child. It's time to slow down in this crazy media driven world. Take time to sit down at the dinner table with your family, put the phones away, and talk to one another. Ask questions and listen...really listen to your loved ones as they answer. Don't tell them what or how to think, but listen to their hearts. You might just begin to understand why you have been given the privilege of having this child pass through you into this world. You did not create their destiny even though they share your DNA. Listening to the way they process these questions just might give you an idea of the inclinations of their heart. I'm not saying this book is the end all to good parenting...not at all. I just think that it might be another small tool (and a fun one) to help us along the parenting journey. My plans for this book? I'll be ordering a second book to give as gifts to my grandsons, Judah and Eli, for Christmas. *I received a copy of this book from the publisher.

    Having a good quality conversation with my two teenage boys is a daily struggle but asking one simple question a day gives me a little insight into their thinking at this stage in life, even if the answer is way off or with an attitude (I'm sure they'll read the answers one day and laugh). Neither one of my boys really got why I started doing this, and I have been repeatedly told that this is stupid. They don't realize it now but one day they will see just now cool really this is! It will be a g Having a good quality conversation with my two teenage boys is a daily struggle but asking one simple question a day gives me a little insight into their thinking at this stage in life, even if the answer is way off or with an attitude (I'm sure they'll read the answers one day and laugh). Neither one of my boys really got why I started doing this, and I have been repeatedly told that this is stupid. They don't realize it now but one day they will see just now cool really this is! It will be a glimpse into a past time that I know they will one day enjoy. The Daily Question for You and Your Child is meant to be used for one child to document their answers to the same questions every day, every year, for three years. Since I have two children I am using this book for my oldest son and writing down the answers for my youngest son, and plan on purchasing him his own book. You can tell this sturdy hardback book will withstand the years and will be a treasured keepsake that can be passed down from generation to generation. The front cover is meant to slide a picture of your favorite photo of you and your little love which is such a sweet idea. The date is neatly marked in the upper right hand corner so you can easily find the correct date and the question is neatly placed at the top. Below the question is three separate paragraphs to document the answer to that day's question. There is also a spot to the right of each paragraph that you can input what year so you can plainly see which year that question was answered. I love that the colors and doodles are gender-neutral and though some of the questions are geared towards younger children I believe this book applies to children of any age! Many of the questions are simple and cute yet engaging. The only downfall, as with any journal, is the consistency factor. It is something that will need to be done on a consistent basis, otherwise it will not have the effect that it's meant to have. As far as journals go, this is one of the most unique ones I've seen in awhile. If you have children I highly recommend this book! It opens up dialogue between you and your child, it's fast and quick, and you'll have a keepsake that you're treasure forever! *I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

But in the years to come, we will miss these hectic chaotic days and wish we'd taken the time to record a little bit more of our kids when they were still small and ours rather than big and away at college. To make the best of both worlds, we have this gorgeous little journal. Designed with the busy parent in mind, the layout is clean and simple. A new question is at the top of each page for each day and underneath are a few lines to write the answer on for the next three years. Just five minutes a day and we can build a record of our child's growth and development over the course of three years while they eat breakfast or tie their shoes. And we can keep it forever or give it to them when they have children of their own. The ideal gift for parents everywhere looking to capture a moment of their child's childhood without the stress of documenting every little moment in fine detail. Likes/Dislikes: I love journals and collect them whenever my budget lets me. But I'm also a parent with three children under the age of five so I don't always have the time to journal like I want to. I also don't always have the time to keep daily records of my kids; the cute things they say, the weird things they do, the touching moments when they help each other or are cute and cuddly for no reason after a long day. But this adorable journal is perfect for doing just that, along with finding out things about my kids that I never would've known or thought to ask them about. 365 questions is a lot of information to uncover about these tiny people I made. And I'm sure you'll love this journal just as much as I do. Rating: G-all ages. Highly recommended. Date Review Written: August 18th, 2018 I received a copy of this book courtesy of WaterBrookMultnomah Publishing and wasn't required to write a positive book review.

Each page features a question at the top which is followed by three separate writing spaces (one for each year). Each space has five blank lines for the year's answer. Most of the time, five lines is plenty of space. The only time there wasn't enough space for me was when it asked the child to make up a short story. Yu can start in any year as there is space to fill in the year number. The questions stand-alone so you can start on any day of the year. In some instances, the questions are naturally themed with the season. For example, December has questions about Christmas. Not all questions have a spiritual theme, but some do. Example Questions: How does God communicate with you? What do you think heaven will be like? I think most protestant Christians will find the questions vague enough that they do not correlate with any particular religious sect. I have been filling out this journal with my six year old and she enjoys it. She always asks for more than one question and I often oblige. I feel like the journal is probably most appropriate for elementary age children and older. For example, I saw one question that asked, What advice would you give to a kindergartener? That's hard to answer unless you are at least in first grade. I like that this is a hardcover book as three years of daily use is bound to take its toll eventually. I do wish it had built-in bookmark. I recommend The Daily Question for You and Your Child to any Christian parent who desires to deepen communication with their child and preserve memories of the fleeting childhood years.

Inspiration for Moms The Daily Question is a handy way to foster a closer relationship with your child. Each page has a question to ask with three different spaces to record the answers. The goal is to track your child’s answers over three years and look at the ways your child’s views are changing. I think the book is best suited to children of at least kindergarten age. Some of the questions will be too abstract for younger children to answer. The questions are a mixture of lighthearted fun and thoughtful. Moms, they will inspire many interesting conversations between you and your child or children. I’ve modified my use of this book since I have three children. I record each child’s answer, so it will take us one year to go through this book instead of three. We’re having fun with it, even though my 14-year-old is rolling his eyes at some of the questions (but hey, we all need more fun and silliness in our lives, right?). Questions to Spark Great Conversations Here’s a sample of the discussion questions for August: “What imaginary creature do you wish was real?” “Name someone who makes you smile, and explain why.” “What do you do if you have a nightmare?” “What would you like to learn to cook by yourself?” “Name three special qualities God designed in you.” I like the smallish size of the book that makes it easy to store on my kitchen counter for dinner discussions. The front cover allows you to slip a photo of your child in the front so the book is more personalized. It will become a fun keepsake to flip through in years to come. Moms, YOUR faith can grow by discussing your answers to these questions with your children! This book will foster their faith while it fosters yours too. WaterBrook graciously provided a review copy of this inspiring book for me.

    “With the frenetic speed of modern life, it’s important to take some intentional time to bond and make lifelong memories.” As a parent, it’s sometimes hard to have something tangible to show your child’s growing up. Baby books are hard to keep up to date and photos are often “stuck” on phones or computers instead of printed out or put in scrapbooks. A simple journal and pen, along with a few minutes every day to talk with your child, could create a time capsule of your child’s thoughts. The Dail “With the frenetic speed of modern life, it’s important to take some intentional time to bond and make lifelong memories.” As a parent, it’s sometimes hard to have something tangible to show your child’s growing up. Baby books are hard to keep up to date and photos are often “stuck” on phones or computers instead of printed out or put in scrapbooks. A simple journal and pen, along with a few minutes every day to talk with your child, could create a time capsule of your child’s thoughts. The Daily Question For You and Your Child: A Three-Year Spiritual Journal was created with that goal in mind – a lasting, tangible way to record your child’s view of the world. The Daily Question For You and Your Child: A Three-Year Spiritual Journalcame available as part of the Multnomah-Waterbrook Launch Team book choices and I thought it would be interesting to review as I have a few little children. I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for a fair review. The journal is laid out very simply with a question for each day and three lined paragraphs where you write the year the question was answered and the answer. Topics cover favorites (movie, weather, smell), likes (songs to sing, games to play, things to do on the weekend), feelings, preferences on holidays and what if questions. The book can be modified to include the parents’ answers as well or to track three children instead of one for three years. The questions are geared more toward children ages 10 or younger. I did note that there is no entry for Feb. 29, which leaves a day without a question in a leap year. There is a way to put a photo of you and your child in the front cover to make it a very personal book. I would highly recommend this for parents of younger children or to give as a gift to parents of young children. Keep it in mind when it gets closer to Christmas and it would be great to start first thing on January 1. Read more here: http://sarahannecarter.com/the-daily-...

    I've been trying to read to my kids as a nightly routine. With a 9-year-old and 12-year-old, the age gap can prove challenging. I'm hoping that by continually reading, praying and giving a kiss goodnight, I'll still have several opportunities, even in the teen years. I'm hoping... :) The Daily Question for You and Your Child is a great way to end the day. It offers one question per page and has lines to allow written in answers. This would make a great keepsake if it's for one child. Looking back I've been trying to read to my kids as a nightly routine. With a 9-year-old and 12-year-old, the age gap can prove challenging.

I'm hoping... :) The Daily Question for You and Your Child is a great way to end the day. It offers one question per page and has lines to allow written in answers. This would make a great keepsake if it's for one child. Looking back at previous journals, we've had some laughs over the answers they'd written. I have no doubt this book will be the same. It's a struggle to find writing prompts for kids' journals, so it's nice that this one not only has a good variety, but that the book covers three years! The questions range from silly to thought-provoking. I think it's a good mix, especially for my kids. They won't always want to be serious. And I've found that no matter the age, from little ones to teenagers, they want to be heard. So asking questions is a great way to allow them to share their opinions on life. This is different from asking "How was school" to which I get the same answer each day: "boring". Oh good, I was hoping it would be since that's what I pay them for...to bore you. I digress... This hardbound book is sure to last daily use. And the fun part is there's a slot in the front cover for a favorite photo or picture. So my kids can make this book their own. Now, this isn't something that solely has to be done at night. Any time of day would work. At breakfast? Sure! After school, before homework? Why not! I'd even recommend this to Sunday school teachers or Youth ministry workers as it gives questions that could easily be used as ice breakers or discussion makers for the group. This could be used as a time capsule in a way, to later be looked at and see how the kids have changed over the years. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher (WaterBrook & Multnomah) in exchange for my honest opinion.

Each day their is a new question and under each question is enough space for three separate answers,one for each year. There are so many different and thought provoking questions! This journal, is an easy way to communicate with your child and see their points of view on a variety of things in life. Some of the questions in this book, involve writing a short story, expressing how they feel, showing creativity or sharing about family values with traditions. The layout of this spiritual journal is really simple to understand. There are a total of 365 different questions which equals one year. The same question asked for three years, will be able to keep and show your child's growth with developmental skills. The Daily Question for You and Your Child is good way to open up some conversations with your child, some that you may have never thought of having with them. You are opening space to build your relationship with having a conversation, learning, and bonding with your child. If you stay on top of it for the three years, you will have their thoughts and memories written down in a journal to forever keep. Think about it! You will forever have 1,095 examples of your child's thoughts, answers, knowledge, and growth. I think this three year spiritual journey-journal is a wonderful concept that all parents should embrace.The children of today, are the children of the future. * I received an advanced readers copy of The Daily Question for You and Your Child for this review thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah.

    The Daily Question for You and Your Child by Waterbrook is a delightful daily journal for parent and child. This hardcover book has a place on its cute cover for a picture.

The cover is designed so that both girls and boys may use it. While older kids will enjoy the questions, the cover will be a bit juvenile for them. Waterbrook has given customers a three year journal to mark the growth of children. Each date has a specific question along with places for three answers. One for each of three years. Parents with three children can adjust to include all three children in one book with replacing names for years. It is a great interactive book. Questions include “What is your favorite thing God has created?” “What is your favorite shirt and why?” These are simple questions that would receive different answers as children grow and mature. It would make a nice keepsake for when the child has grown with a family of their own. Journals become a chore after a few weeks, but this one certainly has potential to stay the course. Questions could be asked before nightly prayers or at the dinner table. Even parents could get in on the discussion to aid in kids opening up more. This book would make a great gift. As I stated earlier, it would make a treasured keepsake, too. Pick up two so that you could present a completed one and blank one to a mother or father-to-be. Grandparents would benefit from quality time discussing these questions, too. Parents would, too. Don’t all children need to spend time with their parents and grandparents talking about God? I highly recommend this for anyone with kiddos. The age is so widespread and depends on the person answering. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars because I love sentimental, nostalgic things. Completed it would be a treasured book in this Gram’s library. I received a complimentary copy from WaterbrookMultnomah. Opinions are my own, honest ones.

    When I showed a copy of The Daily Question for You and Your Child to my daughter, she was excited about receiving it. She has seen me using the adult version (The Daily Question) and relished the idea of getting to record her thoughts in a similar book. This book offers a page for each day of the year in which the same question is posed for three different years. If you do the math, that’s 1,095 conversations that this book will encourage with your child.

If you do the math, that’s 1,095 conversations that this book will encourage with your child. The book does not contain specific years, but rather you can write in the year that the question is being answered. While the question is short, it will easily open a dialogue with your child as they try to answer the question. The questions range from secular to religious, fun to serious, and light-hearted to deep. -If you had all the money in the world, what would you buy? -What is something that you enjoy, even though it is really difficult? -What is hard for you right now? How can I help you with it? -What are five things you like that are blue? -How would you describe Jesus to someone else? Since there’s room for three years’ answers, it will be fun to look back at how your childs’ thoughts change over time. The book also features a place on the cover to slide in a picture of you with your child. The book is written so that children of all ages would enjoy it. It is small enough to be comfortable in young readers’ hands, but large enough to lay open properly so that it’s easy to write in. I would recommend this to everyone with a child. I look forward to fun times of bonding as we complete this book together. I received an advance reading copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.

    The Daily Question for You and Your Child: A 3-Year Spiritual Journey (Waterbrook, 2018) is one of those books that, depending on the child and the parent, will be a wonderful memory maker, or just another journal that gets started with enthusiasm, then there are a few days missed, then a couple of weeks, and eventually the book gets put on the shelf, and when it’s pulled out again you wonder where the time went.

In theory it’s a great idea. Every day there is a question for your child to answer. And the next year and the year after the question is repeated. So 365 questions, discussed 3 times in as many years lead to a lot of parent child conversations. And since your child answers the question each year on the same page, it’s easy to see their progress. But in my experience, journals, like diets and gym memberships, seem like great ideas on January 1st; but it doesn’t take long before the novelty wears off. And that’s when it’s just one schedule to consider. Having said that, some of the questions are cute, some are what’s going on in school or day care, and others have a spiritual bent to them. There is also a pocket on the inside of the front cover for a photo of the child either when you start the journal, or as he or she grows. Another use of this book might be as conversation starters at mealtime, especially if there are 2 or more children in the family. Sunday school or Christian school teachers might like to ask some of the questions at the beginning of class each week or day, and even in a public school setting some of the questions could be written on the board so the student could work during those first few minutes. I received this book as a member of the publisher’s launch team program, I was not required to write a positive review. 3/5

    We've been using this book with our 7yr old son for a few weeks now and I'd give it four stars. I only knock down a star because I believe some of the questions could have been better, "How tall are you today? What's the first thing you do in the morning? What did you do this week to keep your body healthy?" Not exactly 'fun' questions for a kid to answer. And it would be nice if there was a spot to put the child's age near the entry.

It's a cute idea for a diary/journal/memory book, with questions that could appeal to any school-aged child or, in some cases, younger. I like that the year is left blank so you can write in your own date, the questions are short and simple and some are quite fun to answer. You can start at any point in the year, though someone with OCD tendancies like myself may cringe at beginning in the middle :) There are many great questions that I look forward to seeing the answers for down the road - like: " What's the coolest thing you saw today? If I gave you a parachute, what would you jump off? How could we help the people in our community? What is your favorite thing God created?" I can see this being fun to look back on in later years to compare answers to questions like "What do you do if you have a nightmare?" It may be fun to even skip several years and save the last entry for a landmark year like 16, 18 or even 21. This would be a great, unique gift for first day of school, or kindergarten parents-to-be. #PRHpartner - I was given this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I treat reviews very seriously as I often scour them myself before making a purchase, so you can trust my opinions are true and unbiased despite receiving the product for free.

    The Daily Question for You and Your Child is the follow-up release to Waterbrook & Multnomah's earlier book The Daily Question. Although one of my daughters is two and the other one is still growing in my belly, I look forward to going through this book with each of them when they are at the appropriate age. The cover of The Daily Question for You and Your Child states that it is, "A 3 Year Spiritual Journey." I read through many of the questions on my own to discover whether or not the book is The Daily Question for You and Your Child is the follow-up release to Waterbrook & Multnomah's earlier book The Daily Question. Although one of my daughters is two and the other one is still growing in my belly, I look forward to going through this book with each of them when they are at the appropriate age. The cover of The Daily Question for You and Your Child states that it is, "A 3 Year Spiritual Journey." I read through many of the questions on my own to discover whether or not the book is faithful to this premise and I'm thankful to report that it is. Although not every question is spiritual in nature, I believe that it is by asking many of these questions that we, as parents, will have inside look at how our children are doing spiritually. Questions range from, "What is your favorite song?" (question for July 15th) to "What is hard right now? How can I help you with it?" (question for September 29th) and "What are your three favorite things about God?" (question for October 15th). The book is indeed a 3 year journey as the entry page for each question/date has three separate spaces to write in. I'm anticipating going through these questions/conversations with my daughters and looking back at their responses from previous years. One fun aspect of this book is that the cover insert can be removed and replaced with a photo of your child. The intro to The Daily Question for You and Your Child includes the sentiment, "With the frenetic speed of modern life, it's important to take some intentional time to bond and make lifelong memories." I couldn't agree more and look forward to doing just that in the years to come. I received The Daily Question for You and Your Child compliments of Waterbrook & Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.

    The Daily Question For You and Your Child is a delightful and engaging book that encourages interaction between parent (or grandparent) and a child of pretty much any age once verbalization is realized. This hardbound 6" x 7" book is sturdy and made to last the three years it was designed to be used. On the front cover, there is a specially designed slot where a photo can be inserted. Each of the pages is labeled for one day of the year and has 3 sections for each year it is to be used.

Each of the pages is labeled for one day of the year and has 3 sections for each year it is to be used. There is a thoughtful, (Have you ever stayed to help someone instead of leaving to play? How did it make you feel?) sometimes fun, (If you could make up your own holiday, what would it be?) sometimes serious question (When do you feel Jesus's love the most?) at the top of the page. I like how this is laid out with the three years on each page rather than having each year in a chronological layout. You can see what the previous year(s) answers were and how differently the child may or may not answer that particular year and how they are maturing in their thinking and feeling processes. With only five lines for each year, there may not be enough lines on each day for a child's answer to the particular question--might have to write small! With 1095 possible conversations listed in the book, what a wonderful way to communicate with and be involved in your child's life. It is a beautiful way to listen and learn about your child and to direct his or her thinking, feelings, and creativity.

    My first thought as I opened the covers of this book, was... Goodness there isn't much for me to review. As any established, and seasoned reader... I took a closer look. Now I was pondering how would I ever provide a review that would give this collection its deserved value. There is no better place to begin a collection of a child's thoughts, personality, interests, feelings, and spiritual insights than in a journal. Every page is formatted for a three year period.

There is no better place to begin a collection of a child's thoughts, personality, interests, feelings, and spiritual insights than in a journal. Every page is formatted for a three year period. As the adult, you can begin as the scribe and as the child gets older they can take over the writing. In our home, we are spending a few moments after dinner to jot down our answers to the daily question. We decided to use our initials followed with our thoughts. From the youngest to the oldest, we are discovering each other in a way that will not be lost in the passing of time. Here are a few of the questions (remember each question has its own page for each day of the year and each page is divided into thirds for a three year documentation): Who do you think needs a hug today? (January 4) If you could live next door to anyone, who would it be? (May 14) What do you like to pretend? (July 19) If you were a pirate, what would be in your treasure chest? (November 10) What gift would you have given the baby Jesus? How can you give Jesus a gift now? (December 9) It is with much applause, I have discovered how I could review a collection such as this... Absolutely one of the best discoveries of the year! Get one for your home, one for a family, one for a friend, and as a gift for any new parent, MrsK https://mrskbookstogo.blogspot.com/
