Email this review


In a book subtitled ""Advice for Kids on Making the Most of a Special Relationship,"" Dr. Ruth dispenses more of her uniquely practical advice, this time on ""how to make the love between you and your grandparents not only live but flourish."" As part of the discussion, Dr. Ruth not only explains how the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren have changed for the better during modern times, but also what constitutes a grandparent. She then proceeds to show how the relationship is much stronger when it's a ""two-way street."" Dr. Ruth's step-by-step advice on how to maintain a close relationship with grandparents who are far away, how to ""adopt"" a grandparent, how to talk to grandparents even if parents get divorced, even how to teach their elders how to use the VCR or a computer will help readers build bridges of communication. Pearson's delightful black-and-white illustrations will appeal to readers and make the book--packed with wisdom--accessible.
