    The goal is to get young students writing, and sometimes they just don't know where to begin. This book provides 20 prompts per month from September through June to help get them started. The topics chosen may include seasons, friends, feelings, animals, food, sports, or something else that may be familiar. The prompts are great for daily journal writing, seatwork, and filling time in a beneficial way as you work with your other students. Two cutely illustrated templates are found in the back of the book if you want something other than ordinary paper for their writing, and this book is reproducible for classroom or family use. This inexpensive resource can help assure that you won't hear those words again, "I don't know what to write." ~ Donna

    I have such good memories of family vacations we took when I was younger. But I have to wonder if I am remembering the details from my point of view or from the pictures I saw later on. How cool it would be to see what I was actually thinking at that time! This particular travel journal has prompts on every page. This journal captures the entire trip starting with the "pre-trip" pages that include prompts on packing, what you know about where you are going, and finding your destination on a map. During-the-trip pages capture every moment from what you did and saw during the travel time; the weather, food and other cultural questions; and then day-to-day pages to record what you did, what you saw and what/where you ate each day. In the back are pages to keep in touch with new friends, write about your souvenirs, and space to reflect on your trip such as what you found the best/worst about the trip. With about 90 day-to-day pages, it would be perfect for a long summer vacation journal. The light blue/teal pages are great for a girl or boy. What a fun keepsake! pb, 126pp, 6x8". ~ Sara

    Even the most creative writer appreciates a good writing prompt! This book writes like a journal. It’s not a fussy one with lots of curlicues and color, no, this one has white pages with simple black type and lines. The topics are current such as: what’s your favorite viral video? And what do you like about it? There is only space for a paragraph on that one. A longer prompt, where you are given a page to write would be: you catch a stranger stealing from your school. What do you do? What if it’s actually your friend who is stealing? Other topics include homework, music, and your perfect day. There are hundreds of prompts here. This would appeal to boys or girls, in both the topics and appearance of the book. 7x9”, sc. ~Sara

    This journal for teens and adults is an introspective journey to learn oneself better. It could even be used with high school students to help shed some light on a career path. Each daily prompt falls into one of the following areas: who are you? What do you do? Your stuff, your people, food, your body, memories, places, dreams, outdoors and lastly a topic called this or that? They suggest you work through the book front to back. The questions really do get you thinking about what you value in life. Some days you will write a page, others will be just a short question with a few lines. A student could use this as a daily writing warm-up activity. A grandparent could fill it in for their grandchildren, creating a cherished memento as grandchildren (and probably their own children!) learn new things about them. However it is completed, and by whomever completes it, this is sure to become a keepsake for posterity. hc, 158pp, 6x8”, with an attached satin ribbon bookmark. ~ Sara

    Subtitled: “An Interactive Journal of Eclectic Exercises to Jump-Start Your Creativity,” this is a book of prompts to get you thinking creatively. The reader will be asked a series of questions – but not just the usual journal prompts asking what you like or don’t like. These will require higher order thinking skills. Your creative boundaries will be pushed as you figure out your answers. For example, one exercise asks you to put a dot anywhere on a certain page. No more instructions than that. Turn the page and the questions start: how did you choose where you dot will go? Were you being dismissive, impatient or playfully spontaneous when you made the mark? How do you usually respond to ambiguous situations? Did you consider other alternatives? Make more than one dot? Did you try to figure out the most creative answer? Were you afraid of doing it wrong? Does this fear inhibit your creativity? How did your choice reflect your usual approach to open-ended problems? What did you think on learning there are no wrong answers? And all of this is from putting a dot on a page! This exercise was at the front of the book. They get progressively deeper as you work through it. Fascinating bits on how our minds work and simple behaviors that can stimulate our brains introduce the thoughtful activities. Your STEM students will learn creative problem solving. Your artsy students will learn to dig deeper. A family can use it as a daily warm up or even for family discussion topics. An independent student can use it as an introspective journal. pb, 160pp, 6x8”. ~ Sara
