“My Travel Journal” as the title explains is a travel journal to be used by children while traveling to other cities and countries around the world. Often children are not sure what to write about, “My Travel Journal’’ is filled with prompts and interesting facts to look out for and write about. The journal takes a child from when the family decides to take a trip, to what to pack, where to stay, foreign words they will need, their favourite moments, facts on the city and country they visited, money matters and a world map to highlight cities they visited. There are also many pages that allow the child to write freely about their daily activities. Dedicated pages are available for drawing, creating a collage and attaching items they have collected on their trip. Read more
