Reading Journal by Shoohada Khanom – A Review

READING JOURNAL 1

Summary: An easy-to-use journal to keep track of reading. With 115 pages to make note of books being read, there’s space to write the date, title, author, number of pages, and new words. 5 bonus pages are featured at the back to write a list of books to read. Suitable for all ages.

Review: I have always wanted a neat reading journal a little more private than Goodreads and receiving one from Shoohada Khanom to review was just perfect. It’s very creative and cute. I love the cover too; especially the two girls at the bottom, masha’Allah. While my son sat on my lap to take advantage of his allotted screen time, I filled the journal with children’s books on hand that we read alhamdullilah. I’m not sure if I filled it the right way but this works for us for now.

My son suggested that we color the stacks of books; I’m still entertaining the idea of letting him pilot this reading journal alone *haha!* I can’t blame him; we are color-maniacs around here.

Anyway, if you run out of pages, you can select from many other designs with the same contents that the author also has in her repertoire. See below.

Merci to Shoohada Khanom from sending us a reading journal for our homeschooling activities purposes all the way from the UK!

To close, check out these journals and Khanom’s other works on Amazon here. They are a must-have. I almost never log the books we read. This will definitely help us keep track. Who knows? Perhaps, we will know if we read thousands of books before the normal age for kindergarten like one of my friend bi’ithnillah. *winks*

Thank you for reading,
