Book Review - Grandma's Poetry Book by Di Castle

Title: Grandma's Poetry Book
Author: Di Castle
Rating: 4 Stars

A delightful collection of poetry all about the highs and lows of becoming a grandmother. There's something here for every stage of your grandchildren's lives, from the very early baby stage, right through to the teenage years.

This wonderful little book made me laugh and it made me cry. As a fairly new grandmother myself I could relate to so many of the poems in this book, especially the ones that told of the initial reluctance to become a grandmother, which quickly changed into doting adoration once the new addition arrived. Oh how I could relate to that! There is nothing quite like being a grandmother and this lovely collection describes the many different emotions to perfection.

Accompanying each poem are sketches by Denise Horn. Together, the words and pictures capture the special bond between grandparents and their grandchildren, and really do help bring the poetry to life.

A quick and easy read, but one that I know I will return to time and time again. Recommended to all grandmothers or grandmothers to be. Just delightful!
