It is perfect for all ages. I love the spaces for my little guys to draw + lots of pages for my older kiddos to write and journal.

I am thrilled with your gratitude journal pages. I work at a Refugee school in Malaysia teaching Biology and English as a second language. I have been able to incorporate these pages into my English class. I have seen a change in my students’ attitude, behavior and general outlook on life.
