Golden BooksŪ has created the perfect gift to give to someone expecting a newborn, or with an infant developing in their first year. To enhance the journal, the artwork of the famed Eloise Wilkin flows gracefully through all the pages.

On the first page, opposite a picture of a cuddly newborn, are the words, 'Dearest ... This journal is all about you! In it you will find words and pictures and special mementos we have collected for you. They tell the story of your first year of life, our first year with you. It is our gift from the heart to you, our beloved child. We know you will treasure it always. With all our love, ...' Journal headlines include: Before You Were Born; All About Your Parents; The Day You Were Born; Your Grandparents; Your Family Tree, and The World When You Were Born. Plenty of space is provided for inserting photos and data relating to baby's first through twelfth months.

The book is a sturdy hardcover featuring Wilkin's art of a baby playing with a string of wooden beads on the cover. This journal is sure to be a hit with parents as they record their child's growth and create a memento of this treasured time, to give their child later in life.
