The Life and Times of the Most Amazing Person in the World!

Monday, 02 August 2010 12:38

life_and_times.jpgI have kept a journal for about eight years now and it is a wonderful thing to do - I highly recommend it!  When my son Luke was four years old, I helped him start his own journal.  And when he was five, he wrote the first edition of The Life and Times of the Most Amazing Person in the World.

Luke has had over a year of wonderful memories recorded in his journal.  I wrote a blog about it called Keeping a Journal - Not just great for you! if you are interested.  Luke loves writing in his journal and I don't think he has missed a night.

Then at Christmas I had a great idea.  Children achieve so much in a year - wouldn't it be great to have a book recording the amazing year just gone, in his own words.

life_and_times.jpgIt was a lovely ritual to do as the new year was approaching and we had the school holidays to finish the book, so we could enjoy it and not rush it.  So The Life and Times of Luke Marko was created.

There are lots of photos included in the book that Luke picked out himself.  The book includes his favourite things, his first swimming certificate and his first school report.  He has a section on his achievements for the year - learning to ride his bike without trainer wheels, starting school and learning how to read.  What a year!

The book also has a highlights section that includes his first photo in the local newspaper (with his dog, Honey), his weight and height, his fantastically fun 5th birthday rollerskating party and the names of some of his special friends from kindy and school.

We also did a family tree diagram with all his family (pets included) and a special drawing by him to finish up the book.

We then laminated it and punched holes along the side and tied it up with some leather.

It was so exciting.  We are going to do it every year.  I cannot wait to see what happens in the follow up book to be released at the end of 2010.

It was such a lovely thing to do together and I can just imagine looking at it with absolute delight in the years to come.

He has now inspired me to do my own.  At first I thought that it would not be as much fun to do my own - what could I possibly put in the achievements section?  But after some reflection, I am quite excited about doing my own Life and Times book, perhaps featuring an amazing person with a little "a".

I hope I have got you thinking about helping your child to create their own Life and Times of the Most Amazing Person in the World.
