How should we live our lives? I think the time we spend with our families stays closer to our hearts. We can realize it well in this time of the pandemic. Love, Grandma by Ann Morris says about this kind of family bonding.

Payton and Haley are the most valuable parts of Grandma's life. Grandma plays, giggles, bakes, and tells stories to them. Grandma lived her life once again when she saw them growing up. Morris made those moments live, which are the most beautiful moments of a child's life with her grandparents. In this material generation, this book is a very positive way to attach kids to gadgets. So, these kinds of moments need to be highlighted.

I mostly liked the way the author expressed family and love. The author illustrated the value of love on every page which is very important for today's generation. Kids are suffering from trauma, tension, and loneliness, which proves that a positive atmosphere is essential. Kids are getting affected by addictions, so the love of the family is crucial.

Pictures play an important role in children's books which are used beautifully in this book. They reminded me of my childhood.

The author used happy sounds instead of laughter which was my second favorite thing. The book was written from grandma's perspective. Those moments are precious for a grandparent, and it was clearly shown in this book.

The only thing that could have been improved was the rhyme in the last section of the book. Otherwise, the book was impressive.

I give this book a 3 out of 4 stars. I didn't give it a 4 because I missed the rhythm in some lines of the poem. I didn't give it a 2 because I loved how the author expressed the importance of love. It was professionally edited because I didn't find any typos. I recommend this book to kids within 5 to 10, but anyone can read it.

Love, Grandma

It sounds like a book I would like. Growing up, I was blessed with loving grandparents. My sister and I would spend almost every weekend with them. I’m very thankful for that part of my life. Thank you for your review and the time you put into it.

I am blessed to still have both of my grandmas today. There is nothing that can compare to a grandmother's love. Excellent review! :tiphat:

I reviewed this book too. As you mention, highlighting the importance of family values is crucial, especially in this day and age. However, I found that this book is too focused on girly activities (for obvious reasons) and that narrows down the audience a lot. What do you think?
It was great to read your perspective. Thanks!

You are right about that and I absolutely agree with you.

Isn't family one of the strongest weapons on Earth? I guess most grandparents have this gift of spoiling their nieces/nephews not only with sweets but also with a unique love and affection. This book seems to highlight their excellence. Wonderful review! Thank you!

Yes, they gain this talent the moment they become grandparents. Thank you.
