The Grandmother Book: A Book About You for Your Grandchild - A Christmas gift for grandma and her grandchild(ren)

Family history used to be passed down through the oral tradition, but that has gotten increasingly difficult as people move about more and families don't live in the small communities they used to. Whether you see your grandma every day or less often, these books are a great way for grandmothers to chronicle important stages of their life to be shared with future generations.

The Grandmother Book: A Book About You for Your Grandchild
The Grandmother Book: A Book About You for Your Grandchild

From Amazon: For the fifteen million grandmothers who are keepers of family history and memories, The Grandmother Book is a lively and timely way to record your story for future generations.

Andy and Susan Hilford present the perfect way for grandmothers of all ages to pass along a grandmother's story. The story is one that recounts coming-of-age moments, life-changing events, a look back at what was, family anecdotes and historical insight. With thoughtful, surprising, at times unexpected, and provocative questions, this book is directed to the new generation of baby boomer grandmothers. From early memories of her childhood, to the time she began her own family, to the present as she watches her family continue to grow, this valuable, prompted keepsake ensures that the thoughts, moments, events, images, and ideas that shaped her life are collected in her voice and in her hand for a precious audience.

 

Celebrate Her Wisdom - How about a book highlighting great women at certain milestones?

Cathleen Rountree has written a series of books that interview well-known and accomplished women of certain ages (30, 40, 50, 60 and 70) and highlighting their accomplishments at each stage. If your grandma is coming up on a milestone decade, try one of these books for a gift that says, "You're not getting older, you're getting better."

On Women Turning 60: Embracing the Age of Fulfillment
On Women Turning 60: Embracing the Age of Fulfillment

From Amazon: Photojournalist Cathleen Rountree (On Women Turning 40 and On Women Turning 50) has made a cottage industry out of chronicling women who've reached a significant age. The 20 distinguished women she chose for this collection have all had six decades to hone skills and flout convention.

Some, like Marian Woodman, a Jungian analyst in Canada, have found ways to simplify life. A few seem intent on embroidering it. British novelist Fay Weldon careens through romance, shoes, feminism, death, and the choice to embrace discontent in her comments, with great gusts of common sense and humor. "Stop trying to grow when it's obvious there's no potential for growth there," she advises those intent on finding fulfillment. Still others insist that 60 is an age to embrace change. Performance artist Terry Sendgraff learned to walk on stilts at 57 and now uses her crossbred brand of dance and circus acrobatics to teach people how to fully embrace themselves. Writer Ursula K. LeGuin, dancer Luly Santiago, and anthropologist Jane Goodall are also among the diverse subjects of Rountree's interviews.
