What kind of tales would a Grandma tell her little grandchildren? She would love to read these books to her grandchild (ages 4-8) anytime of the day or at bedtime. I read Grandma’s Tales 1 and was delighted with the charming and classic style of children’s books. Book 1 contains Wild Creatures in My Neighborhood and What If I Went to the Circus.
Children’s imaginations always run wild and they will love thinking about having wild creatures in their neighborhood. Whether it’s a red fox, wild duck, or even a bear, wild animals can sometimes be seen in an everyday neighborhood. We may think that they don’t belong, but wild animals are everywhere.
In the book, What If I Went to the Circus, the child wonders what it would be like if he could go to the circus and bring one of the animals home. With each animal listed the child has to think about the results of their choice.
I would definitely want to read these books to my grandchildren. I think that they would enjoy having this book read to them over and over.
