My Mother's Book Journal


A beautifully designed, guided journal that invites mothers to record stories of their lives, creating a personal keepsake for generations to come.

When Elma van Vliet’s mother became ill in 2001, Elma realized there was still so much she wanted to ask her—she created My Mother's Book to help share and preserve precious memories.

My Mother’s Book is a guided journal that prompts your mother to share her memories, dreams, and wishes, asking her to record everything from her favorite band as a teenager and her childhood games to her proudest accomplishment and her first memory of you.

Give it to her as a gift; get it back as a chronicle of her life. More than four million people worldwide have used her Elma van Vliet's books to tell their family’s stories.
