If I Had As Many Grandchildren As You....Review & Give Away!

I have a such a sweet book to tell you about today....If I Had As Many Grandchildren As You by Lori Stewart. This book would make a delightful gift for your child or the grandparent in their life.  Here is the scoop...

Through lively, warm-hearted verse, an optimistic message, and eye-catching photographic illustrations, this whimsical and uplifting book is a journey of discovery for children looking for 'adventuresome fun', and for grandparents finding their very special role as 'memory makers'. The book sparks imagination and creativity, and inspires children to dream and explore and discover that place outside themselves, where they learn about sharing and caring.

The story is narrated by 'Grand Paws', a wise old lion who gives advice to a befuddled grandfather about wondrous places to go, lessons to teach and uplifting things to do with his grandchildren. The story celebrates extraordinary art forms (driftwood horses), natural phenomena (upside down rainbows), wonders of the ancient world, and 'pop' culture. The captioned photographs show that it is quite possible to do nearly everything in this book.   


What a gem!  Can I just say that I absolutely, positively LOVE the idea of grandparents as "memory makers".  What an accurate and touching description.  The author does a spectacular job of driving this message home with her easy to read rhymes that roll of the tongue.  The book is filled with all the magical things grandparents can do with children....building, hugging, exploring, singing dancing, parades.  There are so many lovely ideas from big to small but the real message is that grandparents have the special gift to make children feel special in the little and the big things.  This book is just plain lovely.  My mother reads this to my children regularly and it is a special book to her and to the kiddos.

I think If I Had As Many Grandchildren As You would make a treasure of a gift to the grandparents in your life.  I think it would be very touching if, on the inside cover, you had your child make a hand print with finger paint.  What a special gift!  Pick your copy up today on Amazon....
