Grandmother’s Tin Box is a children’s story by Judith M. Ackerman. Judy loved visiting her grandparents with her brother, Skippy. It was a lot of fun fishing with Grandpa and listening to his amusing tall tales. But she had an extra special bond with Grandmom Anna. Grandmom Anna taught Judy lots of interesting things. She learned to sew and knit, make cookies, and pray. When Judy got older, she lovingly cared for her ailing grandmother. Anna had an old tin box filled with memorabilia from the past. Every item in the tin box had a story, but Judy preferred hearing the story about the diamond pin. It was a gift from a prince to her great-grandmother. After Anna passed away, Judy found the old tin box with a touching note left to her, along with the pin. It was sentimental and one that would hold treasured memories for Judy who missed her beloved grandmom very much.

Do you have a close relationship with your grandparents like Judy did? Do they teach you fun things like fishing and knitting? Judith M. Ackerman's writing is nostalgic, warm, and reflective of her own cherished childhood memories. The illustrations are painted in beautiful pastel colors. This is a forty-page novella but the content within will remind you of those wonderful times you have spent with your grandparents or other significant persons who played similar roles in your lives. Grandmother’s Tin Box by Judith M. Ackerman is a delightful children’s storybook.
