Book Review

Hi friends,

As Grandparents Day gets closer, we wanted to highlight a keepsake notebook that is sure to bring smiles to everyone!  Memories for My Grandchild:  A Keepsake to Remember is a fun and thorough notebook created for grandparents so that they may share their living history.  Almost every page contains charming avian imagery that adds a pop of color without interfering with content space.  One page is devoted to the completion of a family tree and space is provided at the end of each chapter for photos, memorabilia, notes, etc. . . . however, the majority of the book is laid out so grandparents can write down their history, feelings, experiences and beliefs.

Memories for My Grandchild is partitioned into nine chapters:

Your Birth and Background

Your Childhood and Teenage Years

Your Student Life

Love and Marriage

Parenthood and Family Life

Work and Community

Religion and Spirituality

Live and Living


The recipient will be guided by fun and thoughtful questions and prompts . . . some examples being:

“What modern conveniences or technologies were not part of your early years?”

 “Were there hardships you had to overcome as a youngster?  If so, now did you overcome them?”

“Things you do that make me proud: _________________”


96-page, covered wire-o/spiral bound notebook that lies flat for ease of use

This is a great gift for any grandparent . . . and we think grandparents will enjoy writing it as much as parents and grandchildren will enjoy reading it!
