CHILDHOOD, A HISTORY
CHILDHOOD, A HISTORY
We designed this book for parents who want a simple, non-overwhelming way to capture the most meaningful moments from their child’s life.
The book’s prompts focus less on statistics and more on the heart - their ideas, passions, special talents, and funny quirks.
Spanning from birth to eighteen (including two pages for pregnancy) it includes yearly sections for birthdays, adventures, interests, and fun age-appropriate prompts.
Whether you’re a brand new parent or your child is a bit older and you want to “catch up” (it’s not too late!) this journal is designed to help you capture little windows into who your child is and who they are becoming.
- Smyth-sewn binding that will last for generations
- 80# text, partially recycled paper
- 6.75 x 8.75 inches
- Made in the U.S.
Less statistics. More heart.
After feeling guilty about missing time-sensitive things in our own kids' baby books, we spent a year designing a book focused less on documenting statistics and more on the things that actually matter - the moments, memories, and unique insights that we’d want to cherish for years to come.
Didn't start at the beginning?
Niether did we! The good news is, this is the journal where (with the help of old calendars, social media, photo reels) going back is actually possible. And remember, it doesn’t need to be perfect! It just needs to be heartfelt.
Built to last generations.
The goal is for this book to become an heirloom that gets passed on to future generations. For this reason, these books are made entirely in the US and we personally oversee every step from sourcing, printing, binding, and fulfillment. The covers are 100% cotton and use no plastics or artificial coating. Each book is individually bound using the smyth-sewn method, making them extremely flexible and virtually indestructible.
No-hassle return policy
Not sure if this journal is right for you? We get it, sometimes you just need to have it in your hands. Go ahead order the book, open it, flip through the pages, and if you decide it’s not the right fit for you simply send it back using our return portal . We only ask that the book be in its original condition, and for a small fee of $3 to help with return shipping costs.
Beautiful Baby Book!
I'm in love with this journal. I have an almost two-year-old (and another on the way!), and I bought ALL the baby books the first go round, but became overwhelmed by all the details that had to be recorded to actually fill them out. With the Kept journal, I'm able to record all the big moments, the beautiful random details that tumble around in my head, and I do not feel guilty for not remembering every little thing. Rather than me trying to reorganize my busy life to make time for completing a baby book, I can fit the Kept journal into my days whenever I have a bit of time. The journal is also just gorgeous - fantastic quality, and I love the colors.
I purchased this as a baby shower gift for my daughter, she absolutely loves it. I love all the color options for the journal cover and the journal prompts are so thoughtful. The journal is very well made and will definitely stand the test of time as my daughter fills it in over the years to come.
I bought this to start recording memories for my daughter expected in December. Great quality and perfect for the simplicity of capturing important memories of her throughout the years
The best baby book
Such a Good Idea
As a parent, there are so many things to do and remember. I always wanted to find a way to keep up with memories so my kiddos could have written memories and photos but I never found a method that worked. I’m now playing catch up with 3 kids’ books, but the books have been wonderful for keeping track of memories.
