5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

This adorable book starts with a genealogy chart to be filled in with the grandchild’s family, and a list of general information about the grandmother and grandchild, such as their ancestry, occupation, ethnicity, religion, birth place and birthday, where they grew up, and their siblings names.

The rest of the book is sweet questions for the grandmother and grandchild to answer, such as their best friend, their favorite movie, their first childhood memory, their hobbies, what makes them laugh, and what makes them feel brave.
The great thing about this is that it can be filled out by children of any age, by one grandchild or multiple children, all in one year or over decades of time. The questions are equally appropriate for very young toddlers or for adult grandchildren. The questions range from easy answers like your favorite food, to more in-depth questions like “what makes me unique”.

This is such an inspiring book! What a treasure!
