Prance Like No One's Watching: A Guided Journal for Exploding Unicorns by James Breakwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First of all, if you aren't following James on any social media, I would start, immediately. Not only is he hilarious, he's EXTREMELY relatable.
Anyway, I follow him on Twitter and Instagram so when I saw him advertising this book for kids, I pre-ordered it right away. Then it shipped and I was freaking out because I had forgotten I'd ordered it and Alexa is telling me to expect a package and I'm wracking my brain trying to remember what this package was, how big was it, where could I hide it from my husband... Oh, it's a book I ordered a month ago. Whew.
I've always loved journaling, so I was looking forward to my child enjoying the same activity as me, because that always works out the way you envision. I don't even know if she's opened it, but she's nine, not exactly a discerning consumer.
When I looked through it, though, I wanted to instantly steal it and fill it out myself. I might still do that, or at least save it for a daughter (or son) that will appreciate it, unlike the one for whom it was originally purchased. It has so many fun prompts and questions for your burgeoning writer, or any kid that enjoys doing creative things, which my oldest daughter loves to do, hence the state of her bedroom, so why she instantly rejected this book, I won't ever know. Just the fact that I bought it for her specifically and was excited about it probably tipped her off that she should make an effort to NOT even open the book.
DO NOT let my daughter's reaction to this gift scare you off of buying this book. She has TERRIBLE taste, so let it ENCOURAGE you to buy this fun and engaging journal for your kiddo.

A little bit about me, I have five, that's right, FIVE kiddos, so I read A LOT, a lot of board books, Dr. Seuss, Sandra Boynton, Roald Dahl, Beverly Cleary, we have BOXES of books for kids. I got tired of cleaning them all off the floor so I had to start rotating them seasonally. Below I've compiled a list of authors and books that I love reading over and over.
