Today's grandmothers lead full and active lives that include everything from working and traveling to taking classes and volunteering. But that's no surprise. Through the years, they have enjoyed many rich and wonderful experiences, and now it's time to share them.
This unique memory book gives a new generation of grandmothers a way to do just that. Your grandchildren will love finding out more about you, a fascinating person in your own right. The coolest fashions in high school, how you became engaged, your role models, and the values you cherish most are the types of details that your grandchildren are really interested in. They'll also like learning about their ancestors to gain a better understanding of themselves.
For My Grandchild will help you open up that dialogue with the special young people in your life. There are straightforward fill-in-the-blanks for specifics such as family-tree information. And you'll find broader questions followed by plenty of space for writing in longer, more personal answers. This keepsake volume also includes places for pasting in photos and mementos that you would like your grandchildren to have.
Use these pages to pass on traditions, such as your famous cookie recipe, and to offer wisdom, such as an inspiring quote, in a contemporary, appealing way.
Tell your family's story in For My Grandchild and create a strong connection between generations.
