This book focuses on Mabel, a grandmother now who is raising her own granddaughter. She tells the funniest stories from her own life on a farm in early America. Quite clumsy and full of mischief she and her friend and two brothers learn the hard lessons of life through laughter, sorrow and getting in trouble with each chapter. As she matures, her father and mother instill moral values along the way. However, much like Anne of Green Gables her young spirit full of life never leaves her a moment of rest.

We discovered the first book in this series, Stories from Grandma's Attic, through Sonlight. We read that first book as a read-aloud. We both enjoyed it very much. I ended up ordering most of the rest of the series from Amazon and when the box got delivered my daughter sat right down and proceeded to read the next book in the series by herself. Those books have become her "read in the car" books for when we are running errands. Love em! Highly recommend them! A great way to show the way life was way back when.

Although this book is about Mable, the author's grandma, and stories she heard from her as a child, my son enjoyed it as well. He has read the first book, "In Grandma's Attic", and this one to both of his sister's. He has now moved on to Harry Potter. But, will still come back to these books as his sister's request a favorite story to be read again. They are wonderful lessons about life and trusting the Lord even as a child. I am excited to go on to the next book in the series.

Format: Paperback
While this book is the second one in the Grandma's Attic bunch, it's not necessary to read In Grandma's Attic first. The book is a collection of 8-10 page chapters, each with it's own story from Grandma's youth. The stories can be read independently, apart from each other.

In these stories, Grandma, or Mabel, is approximately 6 years old. She's a girl that means well in general, but is rather foolish and rushes into things without thinking, and the consequences are sure to follow. In fact, she's a bit foolish for my tastes, and sometimes my thought was that she needed a good spanking and maybe she'd think through things a bit more. But, still each of the stories has a short moral to it, and there are consequences for Mabel's impetuousness. These are Christian stories; the occasional Bible verse or prayer is mentioned.

All in all, they're clean good stories. I wouldn't hand them to a child prone to getting him/herself into trouble easily, as they might be inclined to get ideas from Mabel. But otherwise, it's acceptable enjoyable reading with a moral to the story. My two older children, ages 8 and 6, enjoyed listening to me read them.

Format: Paperback
I remember these books well from the first time they were published, in 1974, when I was just a little girl, the age of one of my daughters. I loved this series back then, and I saved the original set for my daughters to read someday. Now they are back, in beautiful, colorful covers and black and white illustrations ready to win another set of little girls' hearts.

Ms Arleta Richardson writes charming short stories based on the things she remembered her grandmother telling her. Stories about the ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces, each with its own special tale. Stories about the button box. Stories about funny looking contraption she found hidden in the attic. And stories about many other things.

Grandma's Attic Series is destined to touch your little girl's life like it did mine. Not only are they fun stories that are easy to read, short, and to the point, but they also teach about history, about life when their grandma was a little girl asking questions about things she found in her grandmother's attic.

I highly recommended these books as a girl and I highly recommend them now. My daughter loved them. If you are looking for something for your tweener girl to read, then definitely pick up a copy of the books in Grandma's Attic Series. Books one and two are out now, the third and fourth will release in July.

If you are already a fan of the Grandma's Attic series like me, then you will want to read this book too! My daughter just loves for me to read these out loud to her each night. This book seems to focus more on Mabel's home and family life and times with her best friend Sarah Jane, and less time bringing in other characters we'd seen before from school and church. Each story focuses on either something funny (as most stories are years later!) or some other tough lesson she learned. Things that seemed dull and repetitive to her as a child are now treasures for us to read, through the eyes and imagination of her granddaughter.

This book can be read alone or with the series, and is a great read-aloud book for children. Try it out!

This sweet and morally instructive little book is a joy to share with my kids (3, 4 & 6). Each stand alone chapter is engaging and entertaining.
