Overview

Why do we pass along stories of bygone days? Why do we safeguard old photos and cherish mementos from long ago? Why are we so intrigued by the past?

There are lots of reasons, but maybe the most compelling is this: By studying the path that brought us to where we are, we come to know ourselves better. Personality, character, humor, and style are passed along through the generations just as long-held family traditions are.
Becky Kelly's new prompted journal From Grandmother with Love is a special place for Grandmother to recount her favorite memories and family histories. Becky's journal features her charming watercolor illustrations and prompted entries to guide Grandmother through her life and times, creating a keepsake that will be cherished for years to come, leaving a history about the people and events that came before her, and so that someday, when someone asks a grandchild where they're from, they'll know just what to tell.
