Of the five memory books I purchased this holiday season, Memories for My Grandchild is my favorite. It has a hardcover with spiral binding. It measures about 8 inches by 10 inches. Has a really explanatory table of contents. The book begins with a family tree and continues on throughout the lifetime. The questions are thought-provoking and there are appropriate amounts of lines on which to answer. There are little birds and twigs on some pages giving each a playful, kind feeling. Some questions throughout the book are: What was your favorite home-cooked food? How did your parents discipline you if you did something wrong? As a child/teenager/adult, what were your favorite books, magazines, movies, stars, etc? Any special holiday or vacation recollections? Marriage questions including info about the bridal party, groomsmen, first home, etc. Section on religion. A section for the present: age now? who are your best friends? Describe any collections you have. Your theme song. Fave things now: actors, writers, web sites, etc. Current way to communicate (phone, email etc). Ends with a section on Grandparenthood and describing the births of grandchildren, pet names for them, similarities, etc.
The end of each section includes page or two to post photos, memorabilia, etc. There is a pocket at the end of the book where you can store photos, old letters etc. It's not large enough to hold more than a few pictures and maybe a letter or two.
The book has a stretchy band to pull over the front cover which holds it closed.
The other memory books I bought were: Grandma, Tell me your memories, A Father's Legacy, Share your stories Grandpa, and A Grandparent's Legacy.
I highly recommend Memories for My Grandchild, a Keepsake to Remember. It's a fitting, journal-sized book, has a variety of questions and provides ample room for sharing memories and posting photos.

I knew I wanted to purchase two journal/keepsake type books for each of my grandmothers. I looked at a couple in the store that I didn't like much because they had room for pictures on almost every page and not as much room for questions and answers - which is what I really wanted.

I also read tons of reviews for many of the other books (many of them mentioned in other review comments). I finally decided to order a copy of this one, even though I wasn't 100% if it would fit what I wanted it. After I received it, I immediately ordered a second one so both grandmothers could have one.

What I like about it:
- It is hardcover over a spiral binding (best of both worlds, to me!)
- It has an elastic strap on the outside to hold it shut (just a nice touch)
- It is divided into a handful of "chapter" sections based on stages of life (childhood, school years, etc.)
- It has just a couple pages for basic geneology, which is nice to have for the record but not what I wanted the book to focus on
- There are several questions on each page with a good amount of lines to fill in each answer
- I liked the questions. There were a lot of them. They were a good balance of specific-answers and open-ended. They asked about facts but also got personal. They covered most all of the important and interesting areas of life, asking about preferences and experiences and also personal responses (e.g. asking about length of marriage but also to reflect on what made the marriage last that long).
- I felt that a completed or even partially completed copy of this book would give me a very thorough insight and memorial into my grandmothers without being too shallow nor probing too deep for a written record.

I purchased this book for my grandmother. I am an adult now, and although I've heard plenty of stories from her, I wanted them all written down. This book is perfect! I purchased several other "grandparent journals" for my children's grandparents, and it seems this one blows them out of the water. The questions are mostly about her life and her past, just like a personal journal. Things that only she can answer!! If you are looking for a book for any grandmother, this is the one to get!!

The content is fine, but the font is so small that I don't feel comfortable giving it as a gift to my 82-year-old grandmother. REALLY wish they sold a version in large print!

Let me start by saying that the intent of this book is the be something for grandparents to complete to give to their grandkids to document information about their lives as a keepsake. Also, the book is meant to be completed by one grandparent, not both. This is exactly what I wanted so I'm very happy with this book. Memories for My Grandchild is a beautiful memory book with nice colors and graphics that make the book an attractive keepsake. Many others I considered didn't have a nice aesthetic and, while not critical, it does make other books seem boring. I bought two of these - one as part of my mom's Mother's Day gift and one as part of my Dad's Father's Day gift. They both genuinely loved receiving this book and are looking forward to completing it for my children. I love the idea of having a book my kids can look back to many years down the road and to remember their grandparents and feel that they still have a piece of them, through their history and stories.
