HappySelf Junior edition
The age range is 6 to 12 based around what my own children would enjoy and be able to do. Depending on your child’s reading and writing abilities they may need some guidance at the younger end of the scale. There is flexibility and I have had good feedback from parents buying it for 3 to 5 year olds as well as young teens (and adults).
The journal has been designed to have little writing and there is plenty of space for different handwriting styles or drawing. The paper quality can cope with a range of pencils and pens.
I highly recommend you fill out the journal with your child, even acting as scribe if your child is tired or dislikes writing, so that the emphasis can be on the conversation and reflection rather than the act of writing.
Available in yellow and a range of limited edition colours.
Translated into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
HappySelf Journal 12+ Edition
HappySelf Junior Edition
The journal has three months of daily journaling pages and a section at the front they can fill out at any time. Children are encouraged to fill out their journal every day but as the pages aren't dated it is possible to do it at your own rhythm and easy to keep going should you miss a day.
Three months is an ideal length as it's similar to a school term and so feels achievable for the children to establish their new daily journaling habit. When testing the kids preferred this length and a longer book would have been too bulky or heavy for small hands.
Continuation editions (which last for six months) will be coming out from mid 2020 but for now children are repeating the same journal on completion which is a nice way to reinforce the gratitude practice and growth mindset principles.
HappySelf Journal 12+ Edition
This journal also has three months of daily journaling pages and a section that can be filled out at any time at the front. It also introduces a weekly structure with pages to preview and review the week.
This journal has more space for free journaling on the daily pages.

We aim to ship orders within two to three working days from our UK warehouse.
Due to increased volumes and challenging working conditions the postal services in the UK and abroad are experiencing delays. Delivery times are therefore less predictable and may take longer. Please be patient if your parcel hasn't arrived yet and leave enough time before getting in touch with us. Unfortunately once your parcel is in the postal system there is nothing we can do to speed things up!
Thank you so much for your understanding during these unprecedented times.
Shipping times can vary greatly but expect the following to Australia:
5 to 25 working days
You will receive an email confirming that your order has shipped with tracking information.
