Happy 15th birthday from the Book of You book club, where we collect and cherish childhood memories together.

1. The Moment

Year 15 - it's almost their 15th birthday, so it's time to get the year's best, funniest, and most challenging bits down in your Book of You before the memories fade. Enjoy this treasured bit of you-two time. 

1. Get your favourite tunes on
2. Take up space - sprawl out on a rug and shut the world out
3. Talk about the year and get everything down in your Book of You

2. The Memory

Capturing childhoods past and present, The Book of Me & You is designed for older children to fill out with a significant grown up. Perfect if you want to carry on making memories together. 

To share your memory, tag @colour.chronicles on instagram. If we feature yours on our social or here, we’ll send you a book of your choice.

3. The Advice You Didn't Ask For

“To raise a child, it sometimes takes a village... but sometimes that village should shut up and mind their own busines.”

— Susan McLean, blogger

4. The Parent Friend


In its own words, Thred is shaped by teen culture and powered by social change. Its founder, Jenk Oz, is still a teenager himself, so who better to turn to when you're struggling to find subjects in common with your child? A digest of everything that matters, it's a great site to put your teens onto - and to check in on yourself.

5. The Memory Maker

Give Back!

Work with your child to think of a cause they are passionate about. Then brainstorm and research ways to help. You could end up volunteering at a foodbank or wildlife park, going on a protest march, writing to your MP or starting a petition, or doing a sponsored run, swim, silence, or spellathon. Wherever your discussion leads you, this is a great way to give back and nurture your soon-to-be-an-adult's altruistic side, whilst getting in some family bonding time. 

Happy memory making book clubbers
