Grandma's Christmas Wish Review by Lori Hooten

Grandmas are special, no matter what time of year. But there is something about Christmas that makes a grandma's love seem stronger, almost magical.

Grandma's Christmas Wish is a precious book highlighting the love flowing from grandmother to grandchild. Maybe she is reminiscing, maybe planning. Either way, grandma shares a long list of fun, activity, and love. With candy cane kisses and mistletoe, presents and jingle bells, grandma shares her love with the very best gift of all: her grandchild. At the back of the book, there is a special place for grandma to write a letter of love to her grandchild and put in a picture of them together.

Our family has a tradition of opening wrapped Christmas books each night in December and reading them aloud. This one is going to be a wonderful addition. Illustrated by Petra Brown, the sweet bunnies and scenes of nature celebrate love and the special bond between grandma and her grandchild. This beautiful poem in book form by Helen Foster James will warm your heart and make you wish it was already holiday time. What a special, beautiful present this book would make this Christmas!
