In Grandma's Attic and More Stories From Grandma's Attic

As a little girl Arleta never would have guessed what her grandma was up to when she was her age. That is, until she discovered the secrets hidden in her grandma's attic. Everything she found sparked a tale of Grandma's life in simpler times and a life lesson her grandma had learned. A quilt square reminded her grandma to avoid pride. A shoe button inspired a story about honesty. And what was that wire thing Grandma wore?

But the most amazing thing Arleta discovered? Grandma had been a little girl just like she was, trying to be good but often getting into trouble, sometimes without even meaning to! Filled with fun and laughter, Grandma's stories will whisk you away to another time and place.

In the first book of Grandma's Attic Series, In Grandma's Attic by Arleta Richardson, the reader is taken back to the joys and treasures that await a tale of an adventurous life that her grandma couldn't wait to share. Within each object lies a story from the cloth squares that hold a special memory bound up in each one, to an interesting button basket she acquired from an Indian one bleak winter's day. My favorite was Pa and the Dishwater and the fun adventures that happen when a little girl would rather play on a hot day than do her chores. Learn what happened and what she learned in the process. Great conversation starters for us to have with our children to inquire what they would do in these situations!

In the second book, More Stories From Grandma's Attic, the journey continues with the much loved series. In this one, we learned about an old slate, a heart-shaped locket, a rusty trunk and a misspelled sampler. What happens when a pig wears doll clothes? How did Mama escape the cellar when Pa accidentally locked her in? And what exactly was stuffed inside the doll that Grandma found?

I received these books compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest review and LOVED this series. Much like Little House on The Prairie books, this series takes the readers along with a unique blend of story telling when the granddaughter finds objects in the attic and grandma begin to weave the story that lies behind each one. Much like my own children do when they visit with their grandparents this is such a beautiful and heart-warming series, I can't wait for my daughter to read the rest. In each story there is a lesson to be taught and one our children can relate to.

This series is available on paperback and for your favorite eReader, and rates a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. These books are perfect for children ages 5 and up! For even more information about the books, the author and where you can purchase a copy of these books, please click on the link below:
