5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading in every family. Jan. 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I was looking for something for my grandchildren who live 1500 miles from us when this beautiful book "jumped off the shelf". These letters contain all kinds of things I am able to teach the grandchildren who live close by and visit often, but it will also be nice for them to have something in their hands for future reference. The lessons that these well known people give to their grandchildren as well as our own speak of values we all want for the world. Such a simple thing as writing down the way we try to live will surely speak loud and clear to children (and parents) everywhere now and in the future.

I gave this as a gift to a friend who was becoming a grandmother for the first time.
This book is a series of essays, letters and comments by several well-known people on becoming grandparents.
I thought some of the selections in the book were very moving.
