Birthday Chronicle Review



Hey Everyone!  I recently got to review the Birthday Chronicle by 'Because I Tried It'.  They are really cute, but not quite what I expected!  I had an issue printing it and had to do it multiple times to get my print to be able to print to a decent size frame.  The file wanted to cut itself in two.  I'm hoping the lovely and talented author finds a fix for that!  In order to get mine to print properly, I simply made the printer shrink it to fit one page!  :D

As for content, it was cute.  It wasn't made for history buffs, simply for novelty purposes.  But then, of course it is for novelty!  Chief Zoo Keeper is a history buff, so I really think he would have liked one that was more realistic!  I think it wold be cool if it had an ad on the page from the year chosen, but I could see how difficult it would be to add that in without offending someone.
Delivery was quick and efficient.  It was received in a couple of days.  I was impressed with the time it took to get back to me!  My order was sent within 3 days.  Since it arrives via email, you can get vintage or off white paper at Hobby Lobby or wherever you shop to get a more realistic newspaper print color!  Frame that puppy up and you've got a great birthday gift!
I love that this can be used to get our kids involved in reading the news!  It also inspires an interest in history!  For example, making a game out of what happened that day in history!  Great for both boys and girls!
As you can guess, I really like the birthday chronicle!  It's something different and personal.  It would be great for scrapbooks or putting in a frame on the wall!  A great personalized gift for anyone, at anytime!
