I'm so thrilled to announce the very first giveaway on my blog!  Cue excitement, giddy screams, clapping, cheering, and/or imaginary confetti or parade.

The I Like Book has graciously offered you, my lucky readers, a chance to win your very own copy of an i like book.  Wahoo!


If you're a mom, you probably have a baby book for your child(ren).  If you're a mom like me, you have probably completed one or two pages for your first child and that's it.  It is on my list of things to do, but in the meantime, I needed something that would be easier for me to record the memories of my children.  I started with a notebook, writing important milestones down.  However, I didn't know what to do with small art projects, hand prints, etc.  Then I discovered the i like book back in 2011 and things have changed.  I have been writing something down every single day since January 2012 for both of the boys and for my husband.

The idea behind the i like book is simple.  It has spaces to write down up to two things that you like about your child, your spouse, or yourself per day, depending on whether or not you have a kid book, couples book, or a book for women.  The book is also filled with pages for the kids to color or to jot down height and weight or paste pictures or read quotes.  Basically, it's a journal of sorts to write things that you like about another person.

Here's some more information about the i like book for kids...

Why do I like these books?

I love these books for many reasons, including:
  • It gives me a chance to record funny things my children have said or milestones they have reached, complete with the date it happened.
  • It helps me to focus on positive things, instead of dwelling on negative things that may have happened during the day.  For example, if I have had a hard day with the kids, I find that these books encourage me to look for something positive, something that made me smile, something that made me like them even if all I can recall is the troubling parts of my day.
  • It takes just a few minutes, at most, to fill in.
  • Both my husband and I can write something for each of our kids for every single day.
  • It has pages to include small pieces of art, trace their hands, put pictures, etc.
  • It will make an amazing keepsake for the boys when they are older.
  • It encourages great communication with your kids.
  • They are fun to look back at and see what your kids have been interested in from month to month or year to year.
  • They make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas time.
I cannot say enough positive things about these books.  I love them!

    1. I know! But a Canadian winner would have had to pay $10 for shipping it, due to USPS's shipping increases. :(

  3. Because I seem to get so behind in the little moments that I want to cherish.
