I am a grandma to 5. This book would make an excellent gift for anyone who is becoming a grandmother. It is filled with advice, without being preachy. I am going to read it a second time! It captures the feelings of being a grandmother. The book also gives interesting background to the grandparenting role throughout history, particularly recent history. I highly recommend this book to Anna Quindlen fans, and those who have not yet read her works.

Who better than a writer like Anna Quindlen to write a book on grand-parenting. Quindlen shares her unique perspective of not only grand-parenting but also being the grandmother of a biracial child. Her inherent humor shines through but she also sprinkles the book with pearls of wisdom. For example Quindlen states that a declarative sentence like "you are a grandmother," makes her something different -something special.She assures us that being a grandparent is not about the things you have to do. It's about the things you want to do.Quindlen shares her thought that while people assume when you're old your senses become dull in fact they sharpen. This is a great book for any grandparent or grandparent to be on your list. Believe me; I'm not a grandparent but I loved this book.
