I would highly recommend these for any little girl.

I loved these as a child, and now we read these stories aloud with both of my children and love to hear about the good ole days.

Arleta Richardson captures the truly unique essence of her grandmother's stories. The stories are incredibly entertaining and still present a moral lesson that is invaluable today. I first read this whole series when I was a little girl, and I read them today as a college student, and I plan on passing them onto my little girl one day.

I have enjoyed all the "Grandma" books in this series. This one is really for children a bit older though. It discusses crushes and such. My children are young, so we had to skip some stories.

This is a great series though.

Format: Paperback
With book four comes a change in format. The book no longer has Arleta listening to stories from Grandma but rather is a story told in the voice of Grandma (Mabel) herself. Each chapter is still an individual vignette unrelated to the others, though mention is occasionally made of past events not only from previous chapters but from previous books. In this book, Mabel talks about the year she and Sarah Jane were in Grade 8 and now that they are growing up, they still manage to get themselves into scrapes from mischievousness but they are more apt to have done something wrong that sits badly on their conscience and their Christian values. This book is a little deeper in the Christian aspect as many of the stories (though certainly not all) the girls are learning where the Gospel and scripture fit into their own lives. I still think these books are laid back enough that non-Christians will accept the characters' religion as part of the story rather than feel as if it is being preached to the reader, as they are not preachy at all, simply wholesome. I really quite enjoyed this one, especially with the new format of a straight story of Mabel reminiscing about her childhood, rather than the back and forth of present to past as in the first 3 books.

I was so glad to find these books still in print. My oldest grandaughter is 30 and she loved them. My youngest grandaughter is 7 and she begs to hear them again and again. Each story has a moral and a laugh or two. Even my grandsons have loved these stories.

Format: Paperback
The Grandma's Attic series of books by Arleta Richardson first came out in the 1970s. The title pretty much explains the premise... a little girl discovers interesting and unique things in her grandmother's attic and asks about them. Grandma always has a story to tell about the items she has carefully saved... and other little incidents remind her of stories as well. These sweet, old-fashioned books don't have much of a plot. Instead, they are just short anecdotes about a long-ago little girl with timeless lessons that are just as relevant today as ever.

There are 10 books in the series.They have recently been re-released with new covers and illustrations, as well as easier-to-read page formatting. (More space between the lines which makes them more appealing to younger readers.) I love soft, whimsical style of the new illustrations.

Book 4, Treasures from Grandma's Attic, is slightly different from the previous books in the series in that the stories are just directly narrated by the grandma who was once the little girl in the story. When I noticed that, I thought perhaps it would lend itself to an ongoing story line from one chapter to the next, but it turns out that it doesn't. Each chapter is still pretty much a stand-alone story.

Arleta Richardson has done it again! In Treasures Grandma's Attic, Book 4, we see Mabel in her early teens. Though she has outgrown some of her absent-mindedness, she still found ways to get herself in trouble with the help of her best friend, Sarah Jane. They get a glimpse of the good times in the city, with unbelievable results. They dream of being more independent and pretty just like today. I so appreciated seeing a praying family and one that incorporated God's word into their lives.

This book is great for young girls to learn the principles of obedience, character and love for God. They show the simpler side of life which I think children of today would be privileged to learn from-learning to slow down and enjoying life without so much activity. They contain just plain, good old stories with Godly perspectives and practical lessons of yesteryear, which are actually still pertinent today. Love these books!

This book was provided by Audra Jennings of The B&B Media Group, Inc., in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

Format: Paperback
These are the perfect book for the young historical fiction reader in your home. In fact, can I say it already - both Treasures From Grandma's Attic and Still More Stories From Grandma's Attic would be fantastic book choices for Christmas.

Each book is loaded with adventures galore, and characters that your child will adore and more importantly, relate to. Treasures From Grandma's Attic has 15 stories, while Still More Stories contains 14, providing hours of reading for any young person. As the description above states, these books are similar in style to the Little House books, and also are perfect for homeschooling families. Perfect stories with solid Biblical worldviews that you would not be ashamed of your child reading, and themes that stand the test of time. I have tried reading these stories to my five year old and her attention span is not quite ready but pretty sure in the next year or so, it will be a great way for her and I to spend some time together reading.

I highly recommend these books and give them a huge thumbs up!
