Overview

A whimsical and enchanting way to record memories from your child’s first five years, in a charming double scrapbook format.

The unique style of this double scrapbook is sure to surprise and delight; families record the story of their baby’s first two years, and then flip it upside–down to begin the companion volume that chronicles the toddler years. Features 136 full–color illustrations and a soft padded covering.

The pages of the first part of this enchanting memory journal invite new parents to create a loving and original keepsake for their child. Beginning with recollections of the pregnancy and birth, both mother and father contribute to this warm story of their baby’s first two years, sharing memories of joyful moments, exciting firsts, favorite outings, and family celebrations. Decorated with exquisite patterns, fanciful animals, and characters from story and song, this delightfully illustrated double volume provides space for photographs, announcements and clippings. When You Were Young presents thoughtful parents with a beautiful, engaging, and readable diary especially dedicated to their child.

When your child turns two, mark the occasion by flipping over this unique book and starting again! After the milestones of the first two years of life, children’s abilities and activities increase more and more rapidly as they become more involved with the world around them. Parents can continue their loving tribute as their child speaks his first sentences, discovers new activities and learns to tie his shoes. This beautiful book, enables parents to chronicle the landmarks of their child’s intellectual and emotional growth as well as his or her physical achievements, offering lovely double–page spreads on which to record memories of the child’s typical day, favorite foods, holiday highlights, birthday celebrations, family outings, and much, much more. Like the first book, there is space to add photographs—but now save your child’s drawings as well, creating an irreplaceable book that will be uniquely yours.

When You Were Young: A 2-in-1 Memory Book 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

Which is probably what I get for buying it without seeing the inside. Also, it's wrapped in plastic when it's shipped. So in order to see the inside, you have to unwrap it thereby making it unreturnable. It's a pretty standard baby book I suppose, but the flip over feature is pretty pointless as each section only uses half the book. I wish I would've held out for a more expensive book.

This book is very well put togeather and easy to use. I'm very glad I got it. It's a great book to keep all the information on my baby in.
