The Grandma's Attic books make great read alouds for the whole family Young kids just learning to read like them because every chapter is a different story Many of the stories are funny
February 18, 2007
�In Grandma�s Attic� is a beautiful book that our whole family enjoyed from my 5-year-old homeschooled kindergartener all the way up to my 77-year-old parentsAuthor Arleta Richardson herself in her 80s now recalls stories that her grandmother shared about her childhood The grandmother grew up on a farm in Michigan around the turn of the last century so the stories offer a nice glimpse into the past�almost doubling as a history lessonArleta introduces each story with what was happening when her grandma told it to her whether grandma was sitting down to sew telling about something Arleta had pulled out of the attic or entertaining Arleta as the little girl with diphtheria Readers can learn about day-to-day life from two different periods of history at onceWhat I most appreciate is the quaint honesty of the stories Grandma even tells stories about the mischief she got into as a child! Arleta manages to show that childhood is still childhood no matter the time periodWe used this book as a read-aloud during school times and at bedtime I�d say a child with about a third-grade reading level could read it alone Each of its 23 chapters is short with about 5 or so pages each Each chapter tells a different storyThe book has five nice black-and-white illustrations It even feels good in the hand with a nice linen cardstock cover and standard novel size If you enjoy the Little House on the Prairie series you�ll enjoy this book Some of the stories end with a Christian message such as how prayer brought grandpa a new pair of shoes All emphasize values though not at all in a preachy wayLike grandma from the book I also grew up on a farm in Michigan but I think anyone would love these storiesI can�t wait to read the rest of the series!

This book is an excellent read for young girls. The episodes are short, memorable, and lightly colored with a welcome sense of faith and piety.
