Do you remember Grandma sitting at her sewing machine? Teaching you how to play card games and dominoes, or maybe reading you adventure stories from times past? Or perhaps serving milk and cookies after a long day in school? Grandmas have a unique bond with their grandchildren. Gramma Darling by Lissa Schroeder is the real-life account of a woman's memories of her childhood spent with her Gramma. Gramma Darling does everything from helping her grandchildren learn to walk to sewing clothes for dolly and teddy. She is the warm memory of love and complete security. Whether she is baking in the kitchen, tending the vegetable garden or serving food at the local diner, Gramma Darling is busy, but always full of love. Quick to laugh and always ready to have fun, Gramma Darling is never too busy to play with or help her grandchildren. Gramma Darling's house is eternally warm with her love and laughter, and full of countless adventures for her grandchildren. Patient and kind, Gramma Darling is always around for her grandchildren. Just as a Grandma should be.

A heartwarming story, Gramma Darling by Lissa Schroeder is a beautifully illustrated non-fiction children's book that will entertain both adults and children. Although this story is about only one special Grandma, I felt that this book is a loving tribute to grammas everywhere. Reading the story, it brought back warm, happy memories of my own grandmothers. As the author says, my memories with my grandmothers held a sense of love and security. With colorful illustrations and a delicious looking recipe in the back, this book is a sweet act of love. This book would make a perfect gift for Grandma!
