Grandparents Week: One for the Books

2 Jul

Grandparents are a treasure, whether they live nearby or they’re very far away. This week we’ll talk about ways to foster closeness between your children and their grandparents. It’s Grandparents Week at The New Parents Guide!

My mother and I are alike in many ways, not the least of which is our shared love of reading.  Mom never did stop bringing the gift of reading into the lives of her own kids–even as adults there are always books being passed back and forth–and she’s been instrumental in fostering the love of reading in her grandchildren as well.  What better gift could a grandparent give?

I don’t believe we ever had this book in our own house, but Margaret Wise Brown’s lovely story, Big Red Barn, became a treasured childhood memory for all three of my kids thanks to my mom.  She probably still has the board book at home, even though her youngest grandchild is now 10 years old.  That book was frequently read to sleepy baby and toddler grandchildren while they cuddled in Grannie’s lap.

You’re sure to find some books that will become family favorites on our Children’s Book page!
