I bought this for my old youth pastor and his wife as a gift for them and their newborn. They really appreciated the gift as his wife is an English teacher and loves the arts - so why not get baby started now :)
The pages are quite like the quality you'd find in a Bible. Thin enough to fit all the pages in, yet strong enough to last.
The book itself came well packaged and protected with a hard-case, good for keeping it together when stored.
It's easy for the book to seem quite daunting when there are so many blank pages, you feel like you have to fill them in as soon as you can, but a lifetime is a long time :)
It has a good number of interesting pages at the beginning, such as a "profile" where you can fill in everything about you, and as life goes on, you fill in more, such as education, amongst other acheivements.
When I get married and my wife pops out a kid I wouldn't mind someone getting this for us!
