I’ve seen and even purchased books similar to this one but the makeup and format of this one is by far my favorite. There is nothing better to leave your grandkids than your memories and life history. Such as my impressions seeing the moon landing live, watching news clips of the Vietnam war and the funeral of president John F Kennedy. How I met your Pop, high school events and favorite songs. There are envelopes throughout that can be used for special mementos or notes or letters to your grandchild. There’s a place for your family tree and favorite photos, which I’ve got many! And as the front of the book says, “A gift of stories, wisdom, and off-the-record tales”.
I interviewed and recorded my grandmother before she died and wrote up her story. I’ll treasure it always. Otherwise her story would have left with her.
This is a great gift to leave each of your grandchildren. This could even be started before you have grandkids while some of your thoughts and memories are still fresh. Don’t let your life story and wisdom be buried with you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise. All opinions are my own.
