What a great way to pass on family history!

I bought this great book for my Mom for Mother's Day so she could work on filling it out with our daughter each time we visit.

I decided I wanted to give grandparent journals to the parents and in-laws for Christmas, and began reading the reviews for the many books. I have a rather comprehensive genealogy already done, so I wasn't too interested in getting the whole "family tree" aspect. Instead, I wanted insight into the person's childhood and adulthood, and perhaps some little personal nuggets that would really flesh them out for me, my kids, and generations to come.

At any rate, I still couldn't figure out which one I wanted (sometimes those "look inside" things are just useless, showing copyright pages and blank sheets!), and of course the local book stores don't have all of them. I decided the only way I could decide which was right was to buy them all, look at them, and return the ones I didn't like as well. So, I bought Grandmother Remembers a Written Heirloom for My Grandchild, A Grandparent's Legacy: Your Life Story in Your Own Words, A Grandparent's Book, Grandparents Journal, Memories for My Grandchild. I'm planning to review them all as I make my decision.

The Grandmother book is hardcover. The inside pages are a good weight, with a smooth finish that may or may not accept all types of inks.

This is cute, but as soon as I received it and thumbed through it, I realized it was inappropriate for my mom, who hasn't been with "grandpa" for a long time. It has several pages for "first date with grandpa", "first kiss with grandpa", etc, which would have been awkward, since they're divorced...

Format: Hardcover
This is a book that is at once funny, touching, sentimental and hopeful. The knowledge we have of our grandparents is often diluted when heard through our parents. What better way to encapsulate the lives of our parent's mothers than through this treasure of a book? I wish this book had been written earlier so that my grandmother's life could have been more fully remembered by myself, as well as by my children. This book will, once filled out, be more than a memoir - it will be a family heirloom.

I am of an age where many of my friends are becoming grandmothers. This book is the perfect gift to acknowledge their new status as a grandparent as well as giving them something they can eventually pass along to their grandchild. The book is well thought out and wonderfully written. Recording family history has never been so easy!

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book, and in theory would be a fantastic heirloom for my daughter. I am a bit disappointed that it spends so many pages discussing the relationship between grandmother and grandfather, particularly in a time of so many marriages ending in divorce. At this point I am not sure I will give either of the copies I ordered to the grandmothers, as one is a widower and remarried later in life, begging the question of which 'grandfather' should she write about, and the other is divorced.

This book was a big win--twice over. First with my mother in law, who loved this book so much. She even tells all her friends about it and the incredibly fun time she had making it. I cant tell you how happy that makes me. And Second with my daughter who cherishes this book from her grandmother like its an advance copy of Harry Potter. All of her friends now want to get their own books for their grandmothers.

The Grandmother Book serves as a sweet template for handing down information across the generations. I encourage the authors to create some Grandfather, Aunt and Crazy Uncle books to complement it!

I just got this book to give to my step-mom on Mother's Day. She's a relatively new grandparent and will love filling it out with my nephews. When it arrived, it was even cuter than it looked online. The pictures and the questions, themselves, are whimsical and entertaining. I'm thrilled that the kids will have a chance to know her as the whole amazing person she is, not just as their Grammy. It's something we'll all treasure forever.
