From Grandma with Love

 


From Grandma with Love was created by Bella, a five-year-old with a very vivid imagination. Her Mom, Katia, has been her accomplice since the moment Bella said, "Mamá, I would love for my family, my friends and my teachers to read my story. Is that possible, Mamá?"

 When I agreed to the possibilities of publishing her book—our book—I knew that it was going to be the biggest and very best project together of our lives. Seeing her big smile of happiness, the proudness of her work in her face, and the sparkle of her eyes brought us even closer by creating and writing.

 

From Grandma with Love: a story inspired by her own grandma, family situations and lots of love.

 

Bella is a five-year-old child. Like any other, she could get into mischief sometimes. She does not want Grandma to be upset about her occasional adventures. Bella wonders, "Grandma, will you love me even when I misbehave?"


my review...


This is a cute children’s book. It explains a lot about how something a child might do can frustrate a parent or grandparent. More importantly, it shows that the same authority figure will always love the child. A very important message.

The illustrations are cute and colorful but to be honest, I’m not sure why the child, Bella, is always crying. It might be that she has taken grandma’s markers or is using the book her grandmother was reading, but it still struck me as odd or sad.  

This is short and sweet and can be read to any child or with any young reader. Nice children’s book.





read an excerpt...

Bella: If I come to your bed because I want a hug … Will you love me then?

Grandma: I will feel warm, loved, and cared for. I will love you even more.

Grandma hugged Bella, gave her a kiss and said, “I will always love you no matter how you feel or whatever you do!

Bella: I will love you forever and ever grandma.
