Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Proud winner of the 2007 iParenting Media Award, the National Parenting Publication's (NAPPA) gold and honors award (2005 and 2007), and the 2006 Family Choice Award Awarded the National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval and called "Outstanding" by Parent Council Created by a mother- and daughter-in-law team, this sourcebook lays out a game plan to help grandparents grow closer to their grandchildren. Incorporating advice from more than 350 families nationwide, the guide offers specific tips for bonding with children, from babies to teens. Among its hints are more than 200 easy, low-cost, do-together and long-distance activities; ideas for handling visits, holidays, and family traditions; valuable resources; and selected book reviews. Grandparents will learn how to have a successful visit with their new grandchild, create fun projects and gifts—like yummy-smelling playdough, photo placemats, peek-a-boo books, and musical instruments made from common household items—and explore science and the outdoors. Grandparents are also given insight into how to find common ground, “be real,” and maintain a close relationship during what is often a difficult time for older grandkids.
