Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share Book

Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share BookI’m the mother to two beautiful children. My daughter is 8 years old and my son is 21 months old. To be honest, sometimes I feel like I neglect my daughter a little bit since my young son requires so much of my attention. When I can, I’m always looking for little activities that I can do with the Princess one-on-one to fill the gap and this book is perfect for that!

Title: Mom and Me: An Art Journal to ShareMom and Me: An Art Journal to Share
Author: Lacy Mucklow and Bethany Robertson
ISBN: 9781631063343
Publisher: Race Point Publishing

Synopsis: This full-color art journal for moms and kids to color and draw together in is designed to be a sharing experience. Mom and child can write each other letters, draw what scares them, imagine what they want to be when they are grown up, color a scene using only one favorite color, whatever their imaginations lead them to!

Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share is filled with fun hand-lettering and artwork from Bethany Robertson along with creative prompts from licensed art therapist Lacy Mucklow. Mucklow offers up the best ways to communicate with a child through creating together; how to start an open conversation with your child; questions you can ask that will help generate thoughtful responses; and how to tailor the quality time so it’s still fun and engaging for your child.

My Thoughts: This book is exactly what I needed to re-connect with my young daughter and to spend some quality one-on-one time with her. It’s a “quiet time” activity that we can do together once Prince goes to bed. It allows us to sit down together, talk about our day, our lives and to spend important time together.

The soft-cover book contains 127 pages. The author guides you and your child to complete the activities together. We just started the book and are a few pages into it and working on the creative activities together. It reminds me of a joint artistic & creative journal that we’re completing together. The topics cover all kinds of different things and situations from how to handle bullying to things that scare you. The activities are set up for both you and your child to complete together in the book. Fun!

I think this is a great book (project) for mom’s to do with their children, girl or boy! You can purchase it directly from Amazon for a really great price. It makes a great gift to give too!

    This is a great idea both for teaching children about how to handle certain situations and to give bonding time to a mother and child. The Amazon price is good too.

  3. What a lovely idea this is as a way to keep connected in busy times. I know my 8 year old granddaughter still likes to have the full attention of her parents and grandparents when she can get it. It helps to have a non stressful way to bring up meaningful topics in a way that is enjoyable.

  4. I love how original this book is. My mom didn’t have too much time working full time and taking care of the house chores. She was a legal secretary and I remember marveling at her intricate Gregg Shorthand (don’t think they use that anymore!) so I know she would have had some mean art skills. It’s a great way to bring up tough subjects while your going over the book too.

    I have never seen a book like this one before and I love it. I so want to get one of these for a friend of mine and her daughter. Thank you for sharing this one and I love that Amazon price.
