XOXO: A Keepsake Journal of Letters to Myself by Laura Barcella


XOXO: A Keepsake Journal of Letters to Myself by Laura Barcella

Dear Myself...This very special keepsake provides kids with a treasured space for writing letters to themselves, for their future selves. More than a blank notebook or diary, it contains prompts that encourage young journallers to get real about all kinds of fun and thought-provoking topics: their first celeb crush, their favourite city, their best (or worst) day at the beach and the weirdest adventure they've ever had. And when they're done, they can tuck the book away till another day - and look back at a glimpse of their younger self's innermost thoughts and feelings.
