Do you order a separate yearbook for each of your kids?

When your kids are in the same school, do you order each one their own (identical) yearbook, or do they share?

    We get our kids separate year books because their schools have a big yearbook signing party on the last day of school. I also want them to have their own as a keepsake - I still have all of mine from elementary through high school and we all get a kick out of looking through them together!

      We used to sign ours in elementary school too. I’m surprised my kids don’t do that at their school.

    I'm not at this stage, so didn't realize this was a decision. My husband and I are pretty tired of lugging our own (many&large) yearbooks through multiple moves, so my initial response was "No way would I buy more than one", but the pro comments convinced me otherwise. Fundraising and the memories are important, especially when kids are young. Anyhow, there's probably a reason I can't bring myself to throw out my own...

    Yes we do. The reason being they all sign yearbooks at the end of the school year so I want them to be able to do this. It also raises money for the PTA which then helps off-set field trip costs. So I feel like I am getting my money back in the end.

    Last year I bought 1 yearbook for both kids. No one signed it. Since we are switching school districts next year, I will buy them their own. Definitely for high school, they will get their own, I feel those are most important, even though the elementary school yearbooks are cute to have.

      Having their own books from this year will be a nice memento of their soon-to-be former school. That's sweet of you to think ahead like that.

    I didn't even know elementary schools did yearbooks! My school, which my kids are now in, never did. I wish I had one for each of those years!

    I buy separate for my kids because some day they’ll be adults and may want to have their own to look back on. I love digging my old ones out still.

    My kids' elementary school spends a lot of the last few days signing yearbooks. I often wonder how the kids feel who don't purchase one. We get one for each child.
