My Listography: My Amazing Life in Lists will inspire children and teens to write their autobiography in list form. Kids can list favorite books, movies, foods, songs, friends, things to do in their free time as well as their dreams for the future and all the jobs they might like to do someday.
I wish this book had been around when I was a kid. I never had the inclination to spend hours daily writing in a journal, but I would have enjoyed making these lists. And when I remember how much I liked singers like Tiffany and bands like New Kids on the Block, I realize that My Listography would have been such a great time capsule of my childhood years. I would have enjoyed comparing my current list to old lists from my middle school, teen and college years to see how my opinions have changed and evolved over the years.
If you’re planning a long trip, My Listography: My Amazing Life in Lists would be a great way to keep your child or tween occupied in the car or on the plane. Your child could spend hours writing these lists and comparing them with friends.
You can get in on the listmaking fun as well. I’ve spent hours on www.listography.com, a fun website by the author of My Listography: My Amazing Life in Lists, writing lists in response to their prompted suggestions. My favorite list topics so far are “what I appreciate most about my life” and “a list of my faults.”
