A generational journal for thoughts, memories, feelings, and more

Grandmothers share a special bond with grandchildren, and here’s a journal that lets the two generations truly know each other. A Shared Grandmother’s Journal provides a beautiful, interactive experience where grandmothers can connect with grandkids through topics ranging from favorite traditions, childhood stories, and more.

Engaging and thoughtful writing prompts and topics are the backbone to this wonderful, shared grandmothers journal. It will also give grandkids a window into the life and wisdom of their beloved grandmother. Use it to establish a keepsake of memories from years gone by, as well as to record in-the-moment thoughts and feelings.

A Shared Grandmother’s Journal includes:

  • All grandkids―This grandmothers journal works with all genders of grandchildren.
  • Chat and compare―Clever hypothetical premises allow both generations to compare fun subjects together.
  • For every age―From kids to adults, this journal works for everyone.

This grandmothers journal has what you’re looking for and more. The gap between generations just got much smaller.




Barnes & Noble




A keepsake memory book designed to capture, share, and preserve a grandmother’s and grandchild memories, thoughts, and family ties. Fun illustrations throughout the journal. Engaging prompts to capture cross the generations, inspire conversations, learn about each other, learn family history, and communicate with each other. This will be a memory book to cherish as years go by. It states for all ages, but I would recommend teenager and up.
