the new grannys survival guide
on 11 January 2014
I love a good read so I was excited to be sent this book to review from the lovely lot over at Mumsnet . I must admit I haven't read many "survival" books before so was unsure what to expect. It is lovely that this is something tailored for grandparents as apart from new granny cards I have never really seen any grandparent specific gifts. The small back note claims this book to be " the complete guide to grandparenting for fabulous grans everywhere". I liked the sound of it as i consider my own mum very fabulous.
The book is divided into nine chapters covering everything from how to be a good gran in waiting to granny rivalry to helping children cope with divorce. There are little quote snipets from the lovely "grans" of Gransnet. If you have just thought Gransnet? Shame on you have a peek here they are a group of very modern grannies who share advice, experience and a lot of laughs from the sounds of some of the quotes.
It comes as a hardback, I love the dust cover its very retro chic, very pretty. It's funny, but informative. Lots of lovely little gems of advice that will make any new gran feel at ease and not alone in facing the new and wonderful world of "grandparenthood". It's the perfect gift to give to any expectant gran.I am going to pass this on to my mum to let her have a read.
