I first got this Journal for my two children when they were about 10 years old. They used them for a long time, the value becoming apparent when they re read them years later! My recent purchase was for two of my grand children, age 10 and 11. The Journals were even better than I remember them, but my kids said they were the same they had. In any case they are a classic design, functional and with the engraving a quality product that will stand the test of time!
