Lee P. (copiousreader) reviewed In Grandma's Attic: Stories to Live, Love, Laugh and Learn By on
"In Grandma's Attic" is one of the best character-building books I have come across. These humorous short stories convey history, family life, and lessons learned in such a delightful way. Reminds me of the "Little House" books, but with a greater spiritual emphasis.
Little stories fill the pages of this delightful book that not only teach character, but have you on the floor laughing. I join Mable and her friend Sarah Jane as they find themselves in one scrape after another! In the end though there is always a spirit of sorrow and a desire to do better next time temptation pops up. Every story starts out with a little girl asking her grandma about something she saw or discovered that day, while visiting at her grandmother's house. The question triggers a story from grandma that relates to what she was asked about and so starts another humorous tale of the good old days!
I got this book for free & really loved the true stories from olden days with good values incorporated. Not cheesy, just simple, honest storytelling from Grandma. I believe all ages will enjoy this book!
I loved this book!! Although I read it several years ago (when I was somewhere around 13), I still have great memories of some of the stories. I remember picking it up, just to see what it was like, then finishing it the next day, laughing much of the way through! STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT!! You'll love it too!!
