Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith

I stumbled upon this journal when looking for a creative outlet for the kids.  What a find!  The kids (or should I say we) have had so much fun.  This book may not be for everyone but I couldn't help but think that it would be a great birthday party for the right crowd.  

I am a book person and I've always taught our kids to respect books.  I'm the kind of person who wants to read a magazine, or book, first so the pages are brand new and the spine is tight.  I cringed when I read the first page we opened to "break the spine of this book".  Oh no!  The kids bent, stomped and jumped and we were hooked.  It was okay to do this with this book, that is what this book is for!  After all, the title is Wreck This Journal.

Of course, it doesn't always go as planned.

One of my favorite pages is where they have you take the book in the shower with you but we haven't tried that one yet!  Enjoy!
