NOTES FROM A DISTINGUISHED LIFE

A 70-page, full-color, 100% interactive oral history guide for kids ages 8-22

I wish I’d had this book when my mom was alive! We missed out on so much of her life history. She talked more about her past and her dreams and hopes and disappointments in the last year or so of her Alzheimer’s than the rest of her life put together. It made me so sad that I didn’t know some of those things about her, as I think it would have enriched our relationship 100 times over.

customized & personalized

With blank pages on which to draw prompted pictures and imperfect (read: creatively unthreatening) lines on which to list quotes, memories, and jokes, your child [young or not-so-young] will capture images and stories in his/her own likeness and handwriting.

NON-DISCRIMINATORY

As the editor's preface proclaims, NOTES FROM A DISTINGUISHED LIFE is for any person wishing to interview Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Nana, siblings, teachers, godparents, caregivers, or other loved ones. Get them off the screen and back into books!

STIMULATING rather than RESTRICTIVE

Crowd-sourced questions direct both the interviewer and interviewee to reflect on their lives, share tender moments, laugh, and really get to know each other. Makes a great holiday gift or project for a long summer vacation!
