Growing Up ME: A Guide to Scrapbooking Childhood Stories encourages children to explore what is unique and special about them. It is designed for adults to use when helping children scrapbook about themselves. It can also be used to guide an adult when creating scrapbook pages about children.
This book follows the proven format that won the hearts of readers of The Book of Me, Angie Pedersen’s first book (over 50,000 copies sold to date). Growing Up ME is divided into themes that are common to children’s lives such as family, school, friendship, daydreams, and spirituality.
- defines the chapter role
- explains why the role is important
- provides examples
- includes prompts to aid journaling
- lists ideas for photos, and quotations that would help illustrate the role
- includes additional Internet resources
The chapters are illustrated with scrapbook pages by Angie and her children, as well as 37 other children and their parents who submitted a total of 71 of the book’s layouts.
The last chapters provide journaling prompts and exercises that inspire children to look to the future and envision and research the possibilities for what they would like to become. The book encourages children to document their dreams, providing their own roadmap to the future.
A CD of 12 lesson plans which feature talking points, 3-5 layout topics/ideas, layout examples, and "homework" suggestions is also available.
