I gave one of these books to my mom. When I became a grandma she gave me one. We need more to pass along this great book. It is fun, informative, and a great book to have around. Everyone picks it up and looks through it and reads bits and pieces of it. Young and old, male & female. We really enjoy this book and have given several away already. We have more grandmas that need and want one. I am also going to get the 2nd Grandmothers Are Like Snowflakes--Thanks so much!
