Got this for my 12 year old daughter, but she uses this journal much more often. i guess that this has more of an observational slant on it than destroying a journal...
   great but more challenging than "wreck this journal"
Bought this for my eight year old birthday because she is starting to write stories and I thought a journal with some starting points might help spur some of her imagination. Unfortunately, it is just a little far for her ; I will probably hold until she is at least 10. But I think she will use it to document at that time the world around her.
Keri's book is wonderful. It is the third book that I buy... They are wonderfull philosophy, a creative design and an amazing design. Everyone should have this book at home for children, adults... It does not matter who you are reading this book ; use this book!
   I'm not finding this useful
Sometimes there is little more than a sentence on one page. I also expected a better, more inspiring layout inside ''. The cover promises more than the interior delivers the book.
   Learning how to quest as if you were a child once again
This is a fun and colorful primer on how to go about questing in the world. , I actually borrowed a copy from the public library and loved it so much that I bought it AFTER reading the library's copy! I believe that we have all gotten too serious in our lives and this book helps to bring back the fun, the child, the joy of looking close-up and slowed-down.
   I got this for my niece (age 10) at first ...
I first got this for my niece, but soon i realized it was much more suitable for an adult. I ended up giving it to a friend and was very well received.
   Wondrously creative
It has a real anthropological way of allowing freedom while doing great research. The book is full of Explorations ''- 50 in total that motivates you to get up and explore the world right at your feet, you don 't have to go far or even anywhere at all to learn something new. The layout is easy to follow and has lots and lots of room for your own personal notes and reflections, which is what the book is all about, along with some inspirational quotes and facts to get you out and off the couch. Love Keri Smiths work is definitely a recommendation for designers or those who are simply curious about how people relate to their surroundings.
   Amazing book
The book loved absolutely the author and the author. She's riveting and i kept the book, although it was for a college course!
   Not what I thought it was.
More about connecting actual stuff and sorting them than useless ideas about exploring the world. I think it is more OCD oriented and does not fit my lifestyle.
   Was this written by a 3rd Grader?
A collection of one sentence quotes that are handwritten over two pages. This looks like a high school student created this in an afternoon. Bought for a high school student and was too embarrassed to gift it to them. Would return, but the shipping costs are as much as the book.
