Book Review: Grandloving: Making Memories with Your Grandchildren

It’s so important for grandparents to form a close connection with their grandchildren, but it’s often difficult these days because times are changing so quickly. Grandparents may feel intimidated at the thought of having anything in common with kids in this new video-game world. And grandchildren may not know what to do with grandparents who live far away. That’s why I love the book, GrandLoving: Making Memories with Your Grandchildren, by Sue Johnson, Julie Carson and Elizabeth Bower. It really helps to bridge the generation and communication gap between kids and grandparents by providing tip, activities, ideas and projects that will appeal to both.

I especially like how GrandLoving emphasizes “spending time rather than money on grandkids.” It really is true that money can’t buy love, and piling on the presents won’t build a close relationship. Instead, quality time and shared experiences are what make for wonderful memories and bond-building. The 225 low-cost activities in GrandLoving help grandparents relate to their grandchildren all the way from the womb to the teen years. The authors explain how grandparents can forge a bond with their grandkids even when they live far away, and how they can overcome high-tech obstacles. Step-by-step craft projects and helpful resources provide a wealth of information for grandparents.

If you’re a grandparent or soon to be, GrandLoving is a must-have manual for staying close to your grandchildren throughout their lives. Visit for tips, videos, and more!
