I love this book. I've filled out four for my grandchildren and intend to buy more for the other grandchildren.
Grandmother Remembers Apr 14, 2008
When our children were babies they were given the 'finished product' "Grandmother Remembers" by their grandmothers and great-grandmothers. The children (now 29 and 30) love to look through them whenever they're home. I guess since they share 'ownership' they have left them with us for safekeeping.
This past year, I have begun giving the book at showers to the grandmothers in addition to the gift for the new mom and baby. In each case there has been immediate discussion and appreciation. Once the project has been completed however, we have heard from ALL of the moms- and grandmas-to-be saying the process engendered many tears and chuckles.
We have purchased the grandma AND the grandpa versions so that we may present them to our new granddaughter this summer.
Excellent product. Sturdy even after nearly 30 years!
Take the Time to Write it Down Mar 28, 2008
An organized way to pass on information with a personal touch. It will make you relive some instances and savor memories that should be shared. Definitely a benefit perhaps for generations to come.
Beautiful but a bit "old fashioned" Mar 14, 2008
I bought this for my Mother when my son was born in 1983. I then bought copies of it recently now that I'm a grandmother. There are parts of it that I can't relate to at all. My daughter in law comes from a different kind of family tree and theres no way to explain it at all. My daughter had a child while in college and they didn't marry, So the engagement/married part of my own daughter is a bit shadowed here. I think it needs updating for those of us that have children that live a bit more modern than the book allows. I will be searching for something else soon.
