My Best Book About Me


Damn those crafty Swedes! First they introduced us to the piquant pleasures of pickled herrings, then supergroup Abba made us pull on our flares and sing Fernando, and then budget furniture store IKEA got in on the action and soon a flat pack frenzy was spreading the globe. Now those fab Swedes have done it again with Swedish publishers Fill and Tell getting in on the action with a refreshingly modern take on the keepsake book of memories for your baby. This amazing book is filled with adorable illustrations that your child will love, and has plenty of pages for recording all those precious first memories.


Yes, My Best Book About Me is quite seriously the cutest baby book I have ever seen. The pages are thick and it has a lovely handcrafted feel about it. The book was originally written in Swedish but has now been translated into English. Hurrah! I'm sure if the rumours are true that Kate Middleton will already have snapped up one of these stylish books for her royal embryo.


The headings for bits to be filled in cracked me up too, such as “Mummy put on ___ pounds when expecting me and Daddy put on ___ pounds”, and “Music that made me dance…” as well as “When I reached the terrible twos we mostly argued about…”

Take it from me, this is a must have for all your pregnant friends. So pick up a copy today! And US customers can order the book from huset-shop.com too.

Looks great. A friend bought me one like that and I actually managed to write in it for ALL 3 of my kids. In fact, it was so much fun that I kept on adding info even after the book stopped asking for it!

Expat Mum oh god you make me so mad! I only have two kids and I did do one for the first girl but I completly forgot to do one for the second and now I feel bad because I can't recall all the funny things she did as a baby or when she took her first step and she keeps asking me about it. I really wish I'd pulled my finger out on this!

We managed to fill in only the first 3 pages of our Baby book, and we lost all of the photographs.

Let's face it, babies arre so demanding of our time and energy that you don't have much left to spare for filling in a book.

It's a lovely idea though.

This actually looks quite cute--and effective! It might encourage some people to write more (myself included. I did one for my daughter, but i am fairly convinced I wouldn't have been quite so diligent with a second.

Pickled herrings, I was obsessed with those at "varsity. if only I spent as much time at lectures as I did hunting down those suckers...
