Collage this Journal by Eleanor Shakespeare

"Collage this Journal" by Eleanor Shakespeare is a fun and creative way to journal your thoughts, dreams, goals, and even your past and where you come from! The basis of this journal is to collage pictures you have printed off or cut out of magazines and create your own sort of montage of your life. 

The pages are fun and personable. The backgrounds are different on each page and present a different collaging/writing prompt. The beginning of the book explains just how it works and what tools work best. There is a place to put a photograph of yourself as well as your name. From there, it's purely creativity. Prompts include:
"What would fall out of your time capsule in 100 years?"
"Create falling leaf shapes of things you want to leave behind."
"Collage yourself as a superhero. What would your powers be?"
Collage a paper chain of people you connect with."
"Pack only your most treasured possessions for the desert island."

I think "Collage this Journal" is a fun way to get you thinking. It would be appropriate for middle school age on up to adult. The book is relatively small. It would fit nicely in a bag, purse or backpack. The cover is a nice thicker softcover and seems like it will hold up very well. The book itself holds more than 50 collage prompts. I think this is a fun little journal and would definitely recommend it to others. I rate it as 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
