Dear Diary Day

What do Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Samuel Pepys have in common? Their famous literature all started from a diary. Most people probably don't know this, but today is National Dear Diary Day. It's a good day for kids to start documenting their lives. To help your children get started, pick up a spiral notebook that they can personalize by gluing pictures onto the cover. Or they can try an audio diary. All that's needed is a cassette and a tape recorder with a microphone. Source: FamilyFun
