BFF - A Keepsake Journal of Q&As for Best Friends

The BFF: A Keepsake Journal of Q&As for Best Friends is a great book that offers tweens and even teens the opportunity to record everything about their best friend forever. From what song would represent their life, whether they are a night owl or prefer to go to bed early, listing their crushes and planning the perfect sleepover party.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts….

With Roo fast approaching the tween years (although if you heard her speak you would be convinced she was 8 going on 18 sometimes) friendships are becoming more important in her life. As a child I never kept a diary and in many ways I wish I had, the opportunity to recall friendships, crushes, likes and dislikes – albeit that I might be cringing as I read back through it.

The BFF: A Keepsake Journal of Q&As for Best Friends has given Roo the opportunity to start recording all the important questions, the silly questions and fun facts about herself and her BFF. I really love this book and would happily purchase it for some of her friends birthdays.

Price and Availability

Available to buy from Amazon and all other good book retailers priced at Β£11.99
