Overview

Memory Scrapbooks are a great way for kids and their grandparents to collect and record their shared memories. They'll spend many hours together filling in names to complete a family tree, discussing what they like to do when they're together and noting each other's likes, dislikes, talents and traits. Designed like the other books in this popular series, there are lots of places to draw, paste in photos and write. There's even a pocket at the back to hold letters and souvenirs and a die-cut space in the front cover for a special photo of grandfather and child!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
In workbook style, kids are invited to gather information about one of their grandfathers. Pictures, fingerprints and locks of hair can be collected, as well as stories and memories. A family tree is provided that can be completed. There is a fun, warm rhythm to the questions, emphasizing how much child and grandparent have in common. Favorite places, favorite activities, even scents that remind us of the grandfather can be noted. This is such a great idea. An extension of the baby book concept, any child/grandfather relationship would be enhanced by this kind of sharing of personal information. It is unfortunate that somehow multiple grandfathers couldn't be included in this great little book.
