Reviews - What do customers think about Grandparenting ABCs?
It truly is ABC. Very basic Mar 4, 2008
This book is VERY basic and just a guide to surface grandparenting. If you are past this and looking for solutions to issues, it is not very helpful. Becoming a Grandmother and Essential Grandparenting were much more helpful w/ offering solutions for me. I agree that it is a great gift for a first time grandmother before the baby is born, if given by a friend. If given by a daughter or in-law, it could require some real diplomacy in the presentation!
Perfect Gift for new grandparents! Dec 3, 2007
I have now bought 4 of these books for my friends who are becoming new grandparents and every one of them has loved it -- a perfect gift!

Great suggestions, ideas & known facts to keep grandparents, parents and grandchildren all one big happy family group.
Good unless Grandma is a psycho Dec 4, 2003
I thought this was a great book to buy as a gift for my mother-in-law when I was pregnant with her first grandchild. It is full of updated childcare tips as well as suggestions for how the grandparents can assist and support the new family without stepping on anyone's toes (advice my mother-in-law was in desperate need of). Unfortunately, the grandmother who received this book from me was offended and thought it best to wait to divulge this information until the baby was born and the sleep-deprived parents were unsure how to react. Apparently she knows everything... sadly she hasn't seen her grandson more than a handful of times and has yet to exhibit any kind of knowledge about children (although she tells me that my 4-month-old will soon be putting things in his pockets and I better check them when I do the laundry).
