  1. Jamie Wagner

    We’ve had a lot of fun with this notebook! It was a great way for us to take a cute picture book (The Vegetables We Eat by Gail Gibbons) and personalize it with our own writing and pictures. My kids had a ton of fun drawing the vegetables (and turning them into funny characters). The way this notebook is set up (with written responses and spaces to draw specific things related to the book) really makes it fun, practical, and easy for my kids to remember and apply what they learned reading the book together. I have a 2nd, 4th, and 7th grader, and even my oldest really has had fun with this notebook. It’s really easy to adapt to multiple age levels, and lends to deeper discussion and deeper learning of the topics on the notebooking pages.

    *I was given this notebook for free, in exchange for an honest review. My words are my own* I’m really grateful we got the chance to try this out! 🙂
