Not like my grampy! May 2, 2004
I read this book because I am sad about my grampy. He has this disease and the book is not like what I am going through. Your own situation must be like this but mine is nothing like it. I'm not sure if you actually have had this experience in life. It's the only way to know what it is like. It is much harder to understand and it didn't exactly happen like in the book. Oh well maybe someone will enjoy it more! Thanks anyway
Great book for family reading! May 13, 2000
I came accross this short novel quite by accident and brought it home to read with my two young children. We usually spend time reading before bed each evening. This book captured our attention from the first page. The colorful character descriptions made my children laugh, as they reminded us of members of our own family. The story line led us into family dicussions about what different outcomes may occur when family members get older, how relationships evolve, and how many people, including our children's friends and perhaps our own family, will have similar issues within their own families. This is a highly recommended book.
Rainbows and Other Promises May 11, 2000
When you start to read this book, you wont be able to put it down, the book is sad but at the same time it is realistic and deals with an issue that many kids deal with at one point or another in their life. I really enjoyed this book and hope to someday share it with my kids!:)
Aunt Laurie this was an awsome book May 10, 2000
This book Rainbows and Other Promises written by my very own aunt laurie swinwood was by far the best book I have read in a while. I am 15 and it takes alot for a kid like me to be interested to just sit down and read a book. This book on other hand made me put everything down to read.it was a very nice book for kids and adults. I would much rather be playing hockey or softball then reading anyday. When my aunt sent this book to me i read the first chapter because I felt that it was my aunt so I would read it. Then I really got into to it and I found myself reading it all the time. This book is recommended for everyone. It is easy reading for kids and also it is a good reading for adults...enjoy
A fantasticly touching tale for young reders May 5, 2000
Laurie Swinwood's Rainbows and Other Promises is a must have any parent confronting the fears of raising children as ones own parents age. This book is a fabulous aide for explaining to children the changes that are occuring as the grand parents develop alzheimers. Anyone, not just children will be moved and captavated. This is really just a terrific book.
