If you're anything like I was, as the excitement of becoming a new grandmother for the first time kept escalating, I found myself looking for anything I could get my hands on to read regarding my new role. I was looking for any new ideas, tips or journals that I could incorporate into building a strong and solid bond from day one with all my future grandchildren. I knew in my heart that the bond would begin the moment I learned my daughter-in-law was pregnant with out first grandson.
I wanted to make myself as available as possible and to be a constant positive support system for her and for our son. Offering tips and advice, when asked, and sharing from my past experiences with reminders that every pregnancy is unique and a true blessing!
So, when you're ready, curl up with a cup of coffee and have a good read! As always, keep an open heart and mind as you delve into one or more of these Grandparenting books. I've listed six (6) of my favorite books below and they can all be found on Amazon.
