Reviews - What do customers think about Traveling With Grandma?
Grandma is a parenting role model Apr 5, 2008
This Grandma is the best instructor for parenting classes I've had the pleasure to read. Within the context of an exciting fantasy about time travel, she models superb adult-child interactions based on learning about the world and learning about love and respect for others. This book is a jewel for kids, parents and grandparents ,and certainly for teachers.
A precocious young girl, a wise grandma and a time travel machine Apr 1, 2008
Traveling with Grandma relates a charming interaction between the generations. Instead of teaching her granddaughter with the usual stories of, "When I was your age - - - - -", this clever, imaginative grandmother teaches her granddaughter American History, grammar, vocabulary, manners, and family history with the aid of a time travel machine built by her late husband. The child is completely fascinated with the process and their many adventures satisfy her curiosity and zest for learning. The biggest lesson that the child learns is love, caring and respect for family members. If a child reads the book he should have a dictionary in hand. If an adult reads the book to the child he/she will be surprised that he can't wait to read the next chapter!
