Stories From Grandma...A Book Review
More Stories From Grandma's Attic is Book Two in the series by Arleta Richardson is a sweet and wholesome little book. I really enjoyed the stories about a much simpler time.
This was an easy book to read and would be great for a younger reader. Or for a family read along. Here's the description from the back cover . . . Every story brings laughter or tears. And each story proves that Grandma lived in a simpler time, some things about growing up never change. Every one has a special message about growing up and living in a way that honors God, and something surprising waits just around the corner anytime you step into Grandmother's attic.
And from the publishers website: If you are young enough to love a story—and just about everyone is—here are more stories from Grandma's attic. Magical pieces of a day gone by . . . told by that natural storyteller of all loving families—Grandma, the one who never forgets the fun and laughter of a simpler, perhaps richer time.
Stories of an old rag doll that seems to come alive . . . of a newborn goat dancing stiff-legged in the old farm kitchen . . . and of a faith that gives life meaning.
Here are those marvelous tales—faithfully recalled for the delight of young and old alike, a touchstone to another day when life was simpler, perhaps richer; when the treasures of family life and love were passed from generation to generation by a child's questions . . . and the legends that followed enlarged our faith.

I really enjoyed the wholesome stories and I look forward to be able to read them to my grandchildren. I will recommend them to my dil for a homeschool resource or for a great 'read along' book for family time.
