Format: Hardcover
Grandparents are engaged and active in the lives of their grandkids and though it will be many years before I will have the opportunity to be considered a grandparent myself, I was asked to review this book for all of you (my readers) who might be grandparents or soon to be grandparents.

This book is a treasure trove of ideas, recipes, and helpful hints about being a hip, as well as savvy grandparent today. It talks about pitfalls as well as areas where you can really help, and it helps you understand the differences between being a parent and a grandparent (it is more than just - we can give the kids back!)

The book itself reads much like a handbook and is a great gift idea for yourself or for another new grandparent out there.

I bought one for myself and one for new grandparents. I have read all through mine and I love it. It has some great ideas for sharing with your grandkids indoors and out. Will use some of the games this week end. One hint I loved was: when going to your childs house greet him/her first then the grandkids. This is great, after all they gave you those wonderful blessings!! Sometimes that can be hard when my granddaughters meet me at the door though:-)

I enjoyed this book and I will use it again when the baby arrives. It gives great advice. Things have changed since we were parents. I enjoyed advice from all family members. I enjoyed being reminded of the songs and games we almost forgot. It also reminds us we are not the parent and that is really important. There are new ideas we need to be told about ie. tummy time, no blankets in the crib. The one thing we all can give is love and this book showed everyone can be involved peacefully and Grandparents have an important roll in the baby 's life.

Bought this for a baby shower for the maternal grandmother-to-be. She was thrilled and started reading the book that night. She told me how helpful the book is and was also easy reading and easy to search through. Fun illustrations.

I gave these 2 books as a gift to a friend that became new grandparents & they just loved them. Said, they never knew there were books like this. I glanced thru them before giving it to them. It covers everything & is funny.

Perfect grandparents-to-be gift! The cover is very cute, the book area is smaller and fits great into a small gift bag. We presented it in a yellow nondescript bag. In a few seconds my mother-in-law's face lit up! Surprise!!

I've been inspired by several grandmother books on Amazon. There is so much to learn when you're a new grandparent. I was pleased with `Grandma minds the grandchildren' and 'The Grandparents Handbook'. Where were these great books years ago when I was younger?
