Grandpa’s School of Life

Grandpa’ School of Life – 7 Great Lessons on Being a Good Person

Author: Hal Urban

Reviewer: Jeanette Perkins aka Beeba

The school of life can be tough at times. But Hal Urban (Grandpa) believes that seven choices we make contribute greatly to the quality of our life. Grandpa holds class on Saturday mornings for his son-in-law and three grandchildren. Each week brings a new topic and guest speaker. The lessons include personal testimonies, fascinating facts,  student interaction and laughter. The topics include attitude, kindness, grit, integrity, input, wellness and finances.

“Attitude is a choice – the most important one you’ll ever make.”

This book is a wonderful guide to starting a conversation with your grands about being a good person. As you read Grandpa’s Book of Life, you will be reminded of these simple principles that we may have forgotten as we run around trying to live a “good Life”.
