    Significant Book for Grandmothers

    What a great read! Style is storytelling so is very readable, but is full of deep concepts and truths about the influence and significance that grandmothers and grandfathers can have in a grandchild's life. The author is teachable, as evidenced by her journey, and as she shares her experiences and thoughts she effectively challenges the reader to grow as well. Creative ideas and many real life examples that both touched my heart and opened my eyes to ways we may impact children in our lives. Very short chapters so it can be read straight through or in bits. A winner for grandmothers no matter how experienced!

    More like 3.5 stars

    This was a pretty good book for non-fiction. It makes me look forward to being a grandmother some day. There were a lot of cute stories and snippets from the author's life experiences in this book. Also, it reads a lot like a devotional with each chapter being only a few pages long. The book is very reader-friendly.

    G Is For Grandmother

    This wonderful book, Generation G: Advice For Savvy Grandmothers Who Will Never Go Gray by Marty Norman, is about the wonderful opportunity of being a GRANDmother.<BR/><BR/>Generation G covers many topics facing grandmothers today, such as: dealing with aging, choosing the name our grandchildren will call us, creating new family traditions to meet the changing times, learning how to be a support system for our children and grandchildren, the importance of listening, passing on a legacy, and much, much more.<BR/><BR/>At times the book will make you laugh, at other times you will be moved to tears, and at still other times, you will be scrambling for your pen and note-pad to jot down notes.<BR/><BR/>Marty shows us that grandmothers of this generation have much to offer, and she puts a positive slant on everything. Instead of old, she suggests that we use the word mature; instead of gray, silver; and my personal favorite--instead of saggy, soft.<BR/><BR/>This book is a delightful and uplifting read that will challenge you to throw off the shabby shawl of stereotypes, and become the grandmother that makes a difference in the lives of her grandchildren!<BR/><BR/>This would be a great gift for any grandmother or a great read for current grandmothers (or those like me who look forward to that chapter in their life).

    Generation G by Marty Norman

    Generation G, by Author Marty Norman, is an excellent book that gives advice for savvy grandmothers. Grandmothers of this generation are different than grandmothers of the past. Things and times have changed. Grandmothers are not like the images we have of them sitting in a rocking chair, in the kitchen with their apron, or sitting on the back porch watching the world go by. Grandmothers of today are active. They travel, teach, preach, have jobs and stay in shape Grandmothers of today are savvy.<BR/><BR/>Marty Norman writes and gives advice on how a grandmother can reach her grandchildren in a way that is not preaching¿but teaches how a grandmother can win them over in wisdom, hope, strength & love. A grandmother has many opportunities to help, teach, play and learn with their grandchildren. The book, Generation G, gives ideas on how to keep in contact with grandchildren that live in another state. This book also gives ideas on family traditions, play times, vacations, etc.<BR/><BR/>The greatest part about Generation G is that it helps you, the Grandmother, find your own style and footprint that will reach your grandchildren in years to come. As a grandmother, this is a book that I highly recommend. I have taken notes, made plans and have started making my own legacy with my grandchildren. Buy Generation G¿.it will be one of the best decisions you¿ve ever made.
