My Grandmother’s Book
Author: Elma Van Vliet
Reviewer: Jeanette Perkins aka Beeba
I have often wondered about my grandmother’s life. Even though she lived with us for over fifteen years, our days were filled with the ordinary conversations about meals, the house or the neighbors. What was my grandmother’s wedding day like? How did she feel the day I was born? These are things I will never know. My Grandmother’s Book is a guided journal that will capture many of these experiences for generations to come
When Elma van Vliet’s mother became ill in 2001, it prompted her to create My Mother’s Book to share her own memories with her children. In her newest offering, the focus is on grandmothers. This would be a wonderful opportunity to record your thoughts for your grands to treasure for years to come.
“What historic event do you feel honored to have experienced?”
“What places do you think everyone should visit?”
“What television shows did your family enjoy together?”
Give this as a gift to a new grandmother or keep it for yourself. Your grands will thank you for this long lasting and heartfelt gift.
