I received this book as a gift on the birth of our first grandson.
D. Malecki
Turns out that the kids are spending time "interviewing" Grandpa and it's been a wonderful experience for everyone, including Grandpa and my coworker.
Jules
After looking through many other grandfather memory books, I found this one to be the one with the right information and pages to complete.

What a wonderful gift for both a grandfather and grandchild. It meant a lot to both grandfather and granddaughter to sit and share his life. My daughter gave it to her grandfather as a birthday gift and on completion he in turn gave it to her. It helped her feel closer to him because he lives so far away. What a great idea! I wish I had something like this of my grandparents.

This book is not sappy at all. It has a fun & upbeat get-to-know-you style - something that I think children will want to read both while they're still young AND when they're grown. It's a fill-in-the-blank format with generous sized blanks for your answers (but it doesn't expect whole paragraphs) - easy and fun for the grandfather to fill-in. It asks the kinds of questions about childhood that a child would want to know (hobbies, favorite things, what did you do to earn money & what did you spend it on, what were your chores, etc). It covers the grandfather's childhood, young adulthood, engagement/wedding, first year of marriage, his children being born, and the grandchild being born. It is very comprehensive. Good, fun illustrations inside, too. Highly recommended.

I bought this and the Grandmother Remembers books for my parents as a Christmas present (at the time I was expecting my first baby, their first grandchild). Both books were really big hits! The trick is getting them to actually go though and fill everything out though. Hopefully, they'll finish before Sophia is their age... =]

while this book was very well put together, it really only applies to traditional households. If there were any divorces or anything out of the ordinary, I think it would be awkward to give to the grandparents.

When our first grandchild was born, I received a grandmother gift: a copy of this book's companion (Grandmother Remembers). I was so pleased with it that I looked for a similar book for my husband, and was delighted to find Grandfather Remembers. For each succeeding grandchild, I have bought a new pair of these books. We take our time filling them in, and present them to the grandchild at a time when the child will personally enjoy them. (The reason I bought only one this time is that the one my husband was working on got damaged.) These excellent books can be filled in briefly or in minute detail (which is the way we do). We have enjoyed the process in each case, and our two eldest grandchildren (22 and 16) do treasure them. This pair was a special "Sweet Sixteen" gift for our granddaughter. The earlier pair was a Bar Mitzvah gift for our grandson. We have one more pair, which we'll work on in a leisurely way for our 7-year-old grandson, to be given at a future date.

Overall, I liked this book, which I bought for him to fill out for my infant sons. It gave my father prompts that assisted him in reflecting on his childhood, early adulthood and early years of marriage to my mother.

However, the book is clearly geared toward grandfathers who were born in the U.S. My father was born and raised in Ireland, so some of the questions were not applicable to him (like his favorite comic book--comic books were not commonly available in Ireland when he was a boy).

Also, I think that many of the questions about the marriage of the grandparents could be uncomfortable when the grandparents are no longer married to one another, as is the case with my parents.

I received this book as a gift on the birth of our first grandson. I thought it was such a nice idea that I bought one for the other grandmother to fill out as well. She was touched and grateful, as well, to have such a well-designed format in which to leave vital family information, insights and photos for the newest branch on our family tree!
