Making Memories Together Nov 28, 2009
"Grandmother, Another Name for Love," is a delightful book that stirred up memories of days with my grandmother and engaged me in ways to make memories for my grandchildren today. I especially enjoyed the gentle and refreshing ways the authors expressed their own memories. The humor sprinkled throughout the book made it a fun read. Recipes are fun and easy to do with children. You don't have to be a grandmother to enjoy using this book with your own children or those of a relative or friend. This book makes a wonderful gift for a new grandmother. I highly recommend it!Marilyn McAuley
Grandmother Another Name for Love is a JEWEL Apr 28, 2009
This is a lovely gift book that warms the heart and touches the soul. The cover is beautiful and inviting. Wonderfully made. High quality. The words inside are honey to the soul and they are dispersed among pictures and sayings. Beautiful lay-out. Many quotes and endearing stories from recognizable Christian names of influencers. I think my favorite part was lists of names the grandchild can call you. When we were expecting our grandbaby, all the grandmas-to-be spent weeks trying to come up with a name they wanted to be called. Believe it or not, its a BIG deal. This book provided names none of us had even considered. I highly recommend this as a gift to any grandma and also treat yourself to a copy at the same time...sincerely, Mimi
