This book is an excellent way to record the lives of grandparents. It provides for detailed descriptions not just of life events, but of the personality of the person and of his/her outlook on life. I research my family history, and I have looked at several different versions of this type of book. A Grandparent's Book seems to provide the most complete picture of a person. You don't have to wait to be a grandparent or only give it to a grandparent. It works for parents, too. I have given it to my children's grandparents, and I am purchasing two for my husband and myself to complete for our children and grandchildren.
