Track the transformative years from toddler and “big kid” with this interactive journal for parent and child. This beautiful companion to the best-selling The First 1000 Days journal (over 50,000 copies sold) helps parents capture the precious ages between two and six. From losing a first tooth to the first day of school, Nikki McClure's beautiful paper cut illustrations celebrate all the special moments. Parents can also write and draw with their child to help bring these years to life and preserve them for all time.

About the Author

In 1996, Nikki McClure made her first papercut for the book Apple. She has been creating papercut artwork ever since. She splits her time between making a yearly calendar and making children's books. In the summer, she becomes a full-time berry picker—that is, when she's not watching birds, hanging out with moss, and swimming in the Salish Sea. McClure shows her artwork at Land Gallery in Portland every November, as well as at shows internationally. McClure lives in Olympia, Washington, with her husband and son under cedar trees along the eastern shore of the southern Salish Sea. She is also the author of The First 1000 Days, The Next 1000 Days and Embrace.

Remember the hilarious expression on your mini me’s face after they tasted a new food? Maybe there’s even a picture in their baby book...along with a photo of their first trip to the beach. With so many cool first experiences, you’ll need a bigger journal as your child grows to track their ever changing tastes, adventures, discoveries and more. For young’uns ages two to six, there’s The Next 1000 Days, a modern, interactive journal that lets you and your little sidekick fill out new and old experiences together.

Olympia paper cutting artist, Nikki McClure, seeks to recreate these images, and provide space for parents and their children to record the simple and wonderful experiences of their little one’s childhood with her new journal entitled “The Next 1000 Days,” a follow up to “The First 1000 Days.” Unique illustrations adorn the corners of pages that remain mostly blank and ready to be filled with toddlers’ and preschoolers’ adventures and travels, favorite foods, holiday rituals, dreams, wishes and more. McClure’s simple color palette appropriately captures the simple magic of childhood.

The author Nikki McClure is an incredibly talented local Pacific Northwest artist who uses x-acto knife techniques to design the gorgeous paper cut illustrations. I love this journal because it allows both the parent and child to capture memories of the growing years together, toddlerhood into big kid. 
—The Hand and the Heart

I adore this little book! The illustrations are beautiful and didn't fail to make me smile as I thumbed through the book. I also love the writing prompts—they are more than just recording milestones, they are efforts to record your child's real personality . . . I also really love that this is a book that's sized so that it could be tucked into a purse or backpack, so parents can catch up on writing while waiting for appointments and lessons. This book is just lovely and would make a wonderful gift for the parent in your life with a little one!

Capturing a child’s emerging handwriting is so much fun and "The Next 1000 Days" would be a great way to do it. There are also special places for self portraits.
