Every family has a story to tell. This is yours.
Think of your favourite family holidays, recipes, jokes and often repeated tales. Wouldn't it be great to record them before they're lost to history?
Harriet Green and John-Paul Flintoff are journalists who have spent years drawing the best out of their interviewees. Using this fill-in book, they prompt you to do the same with your nearest and dearest - whether it be re-enacting an old family photo or crafting a letter to someone you miss, remembering much-loved family pets or quizzing your parents about their earliest memories. And most importantly of all, you'll be talking things over with the people that matter to you most, from grandparents to children.
The more you put in, the more valuable this book will become; a moving, unique record of the people who came before you and something to pass on to future generations. A fact-packed, heartfelt heirloom time-capsule of your life.
This creative handbook is designed specifically for "anyone who wants to discover their family story but doesn't know where to start". While it might be aimed at the general public, I believe this is an ideal book for upper primary school age children, and would give them some fantastic projects to do, while discovering family and family stories.
