    I bought this book as a mother's day gift for my mom ( a soon-to-be grandma) without actually paging through it in-store. Super disappointed. It's really only applicable if your parents are still married. A lot more about Grandma and Grandpa than just Grandma. Half of this book would be blank for a Grandma that is no longer married or never was (not to mention one that didn't go to college - as several pages are specifically about college years). For the generation that is now grandparent-age, this leaves out an awful lot of people.

    Every grandchild deserves grandmother's autobiography

    What a wonderful idea. Andy and Susan Hilford have created a book in which grandmothers pen their stories for their grandchildren. This little book will be passed from generation to generation just as baby books are. It might be called a guide to creating your autobiography, grandma. The Hilfords guide is gentle, humorous and thorough. It is fun. I suspect that the biggest problem their collaborators 'grandmothers' will have is deciding to do one for each grandchild or one for every household. My wife has decided to do one for each of our four grandchildren.

    Every grandmother should give this book!

    I just got this book and I love it! It is fun and charming and I know that my grandchildren will love it and pass it on to succeeding generations. I wish that my grandmothers had written this book for me and my children. I am buying and writing one for each of my grandchildren. It is a family treasure. I hope the authors write one for grandfathers as well.

    Highly Recommended

    I would highly recommend this adorable book to any grandmother that would like to leave information about their family history and other facts to their grandchildren. The illustrations are very cute and would be appropriate for a younger or older child. I gave this book as a gift so that she may record information and leave it as a legacy. Even though the child is only 5 years old the grandmother can record the info and save the book for later. She also loved this book as well as I did. I would highly recommend this book for any grandmother!!

    Great book but very culture specific

    I got this book for my mother to share with my children. Not having been raised in the United States, there were a lot of topics which were not relevant and sort of embarrasing for her to answer. Mostly, they were about marriage to my dad, having babies, and dating. In fact, some grandmothers may not be willing to delve into such detail. It's a wonderful format but I ended up returning it and just made a similar book on my own.

    Great Book!

    This book is a great gift for a grandmother. Have her fill it out and give it back to you and go over it :) Very touching!

    Attention Grandmothers

    I got this for my mother to keep track of what my two boys are doing (no easy feat)! Well, at least before she got this wonderful book. Now everything is in it's place, preserved for generations to come. A great gift idea.

    great for Grandma

    Since its up to the Great Grandma's and the Grandma's to pass along vaulable information to future generations then this is a good start. This has almost everything in one book. It's nice to pass on to your grandchildren. I loved this book.

    Great gift for new-to-be grandmothers

    A great book for grandmothers to reflect on their life, and in the furture a great book for grandchildren to learn about their grandmother. I wish my grandmother would have had a book like this! My mother and mother-in law loved their book, but they loved the fact that they were going to be grandmother more!

    Good For Recording History

    Your parents may be young to believe themselves grandparents that need to record their lives, but getting memories on paper is always a worthwhile event. I gave this book to both grandmothers of my 3-month-old for a Mother's Day gift, and both have looked at their "homework" as a wonderful task.
    Only downfall is that some sections seem to apply to things more in our lifetimes than our parents (college graduation, jobs outside the home, etc.), but the introduction recommends only filling in what's applicable, striking through things and writing in new, and otherwise making the book your own.

    For all Grandmothers and their children and children's children

    This is a wonderful idea- I am getting one for each of my 6 grandchildren. It will be a family history answering all their questions which Susan and Andy Hilford have so thoughtfully provided. This is a book for generations to come to know where they are from and who loved them.

    A reviewer

    The pictures are fun - and the questions are even more fun. What a great way for the kids to get to know my mom. I wish this book existed back when I was growing up. I'd love to know more about who my grandmother was. I'm glad that my kids will grow up to know the amazing person my mother is, beyond being their grandmom.

    Best Gift I Ever Got For Anyone

    I thought it would be hit or miss because it is so different. But this book was a win twice over. First with my mother in law, who loved this book so much. She tells all her friends about it and the incredibly fun time she had making it. And Second with my daughter who cherishes this book from her grandmother like its the next harry potter.
