Express Yourself: The One-Year Journal For Girls

51pIi2mp-QL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_As a creative soul, I love looking at books about creativity – even when they’re for kids. Express Yourself is a one-year creativity journal that is geared toward girls or anyone that wants to embrace their feminine side (really). There really wasn’t anything in the book that couldn’t be loved by boys or transgender teens and pre-teens as well.

As a journal, it includes one week worth of entries across every couple of pages. It’s basically a journal, but it gives you prompts and inspiration galore. It’s not a journal so much about “creating” things. The creative part is in the writing (I’m a writer, so that’s the most creative pastime for me).

It’s a colorful and fun journal. Journaling takes just minutes a day to do, and it’s a great way to be able to look back at your life. With 5-lines for each day of the week, you won’t be writing a ton, but it’s a great way to remember some of the best things from that day or a great place to jot down your coolest ideas.

Each week includes a quote, like “Accept who you are, unless you’re a serial killer.” Ellen DeGeneres said that. It also includes prompts about your dreams, your crush, and more. One of my favorites is the page that has a fill in the blank for “I just can’t stop thinking about…” I can’t stop thinking about writing and creating!

If you have a teen or pre-teen in your life that has an affinity for words, this would be a great gift for them. It’s available on Amazon.

I received this book free from the publisher, and this is an honest and unbiased review.
