From Grandmother with Love

Overview

Becky Kelly's new prompted journal From Grandmother with Love is a special place for Grandmother to recount her favorite memories and family histories. Becky's journal features her charming watercolor illustrations and prompted entries to guide Grandmother through her life and times, creating a keepsake that will be cherished for years to come, leaving a history about the people and events that came before her, and so that someday, when someone asks a grandchild where they're from, they'll know just what to tell.
