"This is Your Book" from Star RM
"This is Your Book" allows parents to record more than just the vital statistics about their baby's birth. It provides an opportunity to reflect on the pop culture that surrounds the big day. From basic info such as the baby's height, hospital and hair color, to amusing recollections of all the baby names that were ruled out, to random statistics such as the U.S. Dollar to Euro exchange rate and the price of a six pack of beer, this book will provide great insight into what the world was like when the child was born, and will be a fun stimulus for conversation and education with the child in the years to come.
