In Grandma's Attic (#01 in Grandma's Attic Series)

Arleta Richardson

$9.99

Paperback

Remember when you were a child - when all the world was new, and the smallest object a thing of wonder? Arleta Richardson remembers: the funny wearable wire contraption hidden in the dusty attic, the century-old schoolchild's slate that belonged to Grandma, an ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces - each with its own special story - and the button basket, a miracle of mysteries. And best of all was the remarkable grandmother who made magic of all she touched, bringing the past alive as only a born storyteller could.

Here are those marvelous tales - faithfully recalled for the delight of young and old alike, a touchstone to another day when life was simpler, perhaps richer; when the treasures of family life and love were passed from generation to generation by a child's questions...and the legends that followed enlarged our faith.

Arleta Richardson

Gifted storyteller Arleta Richardson grew up an only child in Chicago, living in a hotel on the shores of Lake Michigan. Under the care of her maternal grandmother, she listened for hours as her grandmother told stories from her own childhood. With unusual recall, Arleta began to write these stories for an audience that now numbers over 2 million. "My grandmother would be amazed to know her stories have gone around the world," Arleta says.

Great for kids
5 stars By Jess, Mar 01 2018
This is a lovely book about the 'olden days'. It is made up of a series of stories that Grandma tells, so it is great for bed time reading - each chapter is its own story. My 5 and 7 year old daughters loved the stories and it would be a great book for children of a similar age, maybe up to 9. I can see it appealing more to girls. Gives lots of life lessons while still being great fun.

A humorous beautifully written book
0 stars By E, Nov 13 2017
A sweet book about Mabel who finds out stories of her grandma's life as a young girl, triggered by the different patches on a quilt she finds in the attic. A beautifully written book about the joys found in a simple life in those days. On the sonlight curriculum.
