    Highly recommended!

    This is the greatest gift book for a new grandparent! I have given it to several friends and they have all remarked on how heartfelt the book was. The author has written several other wonderful children's books. I would highly recommend it!

    Great way to announce pregnancy to the grands!

    I gave this book to my parents as a way to announce that we were expecting. They loved the book, and thought it was a great way to receive the news. They are so excited to meet their first grandchild in a few months.

    The story is so sweet, and the illustrations are gorgeous.

    Best book ever for a "grand" to give to a friend who will soon be a grandparent! Brings you to your knees with tears of laughter, and in thanksgiving.

    Contemplate the circle of life as well as names you will call yourself when you hear the news that you are going to be a grandparent...a "grand," with this sweet book. I received it 7 years ago from my best buddy when my daughter was expecting her first, and have given it to many friends as they find themselves on brink of the "gifts of being Grand." Perfect gift, perfect read, 1st to yourself, then to the grandchild that ultimately comes and makes all the predictions therein come true...too true!

    The perfect gift for a first time grandparent!

    A wonderfully warm, funny ,and very true story about grandparents put to rhyme. I had never heard of this book until I became a grandparent.I have purchased 10 of this book just to have on hand. It has become my new grandparent tradition--a book that I know will be treasured like new parents receiving On The Night You Were Born!
