Life is Better with Friends launches My Friends and I book

‘My Friends and I’ – A Book Full Of Friends

Aaaaaand – we’re ready to make new friends!

We're a fairly normal family of seven: four friendly humans and three very furry cats, from a small town in Texas with a population of 2,204, and we published a book.

Why did we publish the book? Because Mrs. Life Is Better With Friends had such a book when she was a child. And all of her friends did. And all of her friends’ friends did. And everybody loved it. So, Mrs. Life Is Better With Friends wanted to get her kids a book like that. But you see, Mrs. Life Is Better With Friends grew up in Germany, and this book simply does not exist in the United States, nor could Mrs. Life Is Better With Friends find an English version of the book anywhere else.

So, she decided to create and publish her own so called “Friendsbook” (“Freundebuch” in German) and make it available to her kids, their friends, their friends’ friends, their friends’ friends’ friends, their friends’ friends’…

Because, hey: Life is Better with Friends, isn’t it? And that’s what this book is all about.

The ‘My Friends and I’ memory book

My Friends and I is a one-of-a-kind, fun, interactive, timeless memory book for children ages 5-12.  

On 80 pages, the beautifully illustrated, durable hardcover book in soft pastel colors captures memories of the young book owners and 39 friends, classmates, teachers, coaches, family members, or any other person in their lives. 

Once the little book owners have filled out the first three pages themselves, the book travels from friend to friend, who will answer questions like: What is your favorite food? What do you like to do in your free time? What songs do you like to listen to? What books do you like to read? What do you want to be when you grow up?

A picture box allows them to insert a picture of themselves or to draw a picture of their own.

My Friends and I is a great kid’s birthday or Christmas present, a sweet surprise for the First Day of School, a fun way for teachers and classmates to get to know each other, a unique end-of-year gift for teachers, or a thoughtful farewell gift for friends who are moving.

 Fill out the questions in the My Friends and I memory book.

Keep your child’s childhood memories alive for years to come

Memories last a lifetime and they’re safely kept in the My Friends and I memory book. Your children will cherish their My Friends and I books now and in the future.
