Gloria Hunniford, BBC radio personality and vivacious Grandma of nine, has a book on grandparenting that chronicles her personal joy in family life. She talks about things in her own growing up years that our grandchildren will never understand and also the things that today’s children take for granted that are news to us seniors–the blackberry, for instance. What is a dark purple fruit for pies to one generation is a key piece of technology to another. You can’t help but pick up on her enthusiasm for the wonderful relationship grandparents can have with their grandchildren as you read through this book.
