This chunky board book is the perfect gift for a new grandchild. This book not only brought tears to my eyes, it actually had me sobbing! Having a tiny Preemie grandson in the NICU, the sentiments almost brought me to my knees. We have been so thankful for every ounce gained, and teeny tiny positive signs. You will not regret selecting this book for your new grandchild, and it will be cherished forever.
I bought this book for my six year old granddaughter, she wanted a special Grammy/ granddaughter book, although I thought we'd had several over the years this one let me tell her she has always been perfect in my eyes and always will because she is just who I wished for. I snapped pictures of the text on my phone and left the book for her but told her she could call me any time and I would read it to her. It's a precious book to share with your grand littles and should be read often.
Grandma Wishes: Children's Board Book is not a regular board book, it has a soft cover. The illustrations in this book are simple and beautiful, with bright colors to attract baby's attention. I have never managed to read it all the way through, to my granddaughter. The words are so beautiful, my voice cracks and my eyes fill with tears. I love it! I will keep practicing, and maybe soon I can read it without tears.
My mom is very close to my kids. She is their only grandma so I like finding "grandma" specific things. This story is lovely. It rhymes (which we like). It is about a grandma's tender love for her grandbabies. I hope she likes it! It's a Christmas gift for her from my little kids.
As a first-time grandmother, I was looking for that "special" book to supplement all the "must haves" like Good Night Moon, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Pat the Bunny, and so many I read to my own children. I came across Grandma Wishes at the library and saw that it was just what I wanted. The first time I read it to my infant grandchild, I was in tears. The book wishes for the special relationship we all want, and for the health and joy of your grandchild. My granddaughter must have felt my joy, because she wanted me to read it regularly...but only me. It is a love letter to your grandchild. I have now given it to my friends who are new grandparents and get sincere thanks after they share it with a new grandchild. I hope to read it on every visit well into my baby's childhood...and beyond!
Purchased this for my 2 year old granddaughter. She is adopted and we talk about her arrival, birth family, etc. We waited a very long time for her and this book brought tears to my eyes! Yes, your Grandmama wished on a star....and got you! ❤️
I LOVE this book! Reading it the first time brought tears to my eyes. I'm meeting my new grandson in a few days and can't wait to take this book to him. I know he won't understand it for quite awhile, but Nana is going to read it to him anyway!
This board book was a gift for my 2-year-old granddaughter for Christmas. I wanted to make it a very special gift from just grandma, so I wrote a "love" letter to her on a nice note card and put it inside the book. My hopes are that this book and note will remain a keepsake for her long after I'm gone. The message of the book is very sweet. It talks about the love that the Grandma has for the child even before the baby was born. Suitable for children who still read board books. I highly recommend!
