Product Description

Remember when you were a child--when all the world was new, and the smallest object a thing of wonder? Arleta Richardson remembers: the funny wearable wire contraption hidden in the dusty attic, the century-old schoolchild's slate that belonged to Grandma, an ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces--each with its own special story--and the button basket, a miracle of mysteries. And best of all was the remarkable grandmother who made magic of all she touched, bringing the past alive as only a born storyteller could.
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. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

    Sweet Stories for Children

    I enjoyed these sweet children's books by Arleta Richardson. Each chapter tells a different story about when Grandma was growing up. As she tells these stories to her granddaughter, she weaves in wonderful lessons that teach character. These old-fashioned stories are simple and easy to read, but the lessons are valuable and timeless.

    Little Arleta loves her Grandma Mabel and she often asks her to tell stories of when she was a little girl.

    Grandma Mabel was born in the early 1900's. This was a time of long dresses, wagons pulled by horses, no electricity, no inside plumbing (in rural areas), everything was handmade or preserved, and girls wore bonnets. Grandma Mabel's stories are full of nostalgia. Grandma Mabel as a young girl was full of curiosity and mischief. Arleta is amazed at the antics of her grandmother as a young girl. During this time of storytelling the two of them grow a closer bond, and for the rest of Arleta's life she will remember these memories.

    I felt this is a great book for little girls--reading level 2nd grade through 5th grade.

    The stories seem so far removed from the current culture we live in, it really is from another age. An age of no computers, or Twitter, or Blogger, or Facebook, and no television. Children read books, or played outside, or listened to stories that their parent's or grandparent's told. This was also an age when children had chores to do, as soon as they were old enough responsibilities were given to them in order to the perform household or farm functions.

    Examples of various stories are: the button basket, hoop skirts, childhood diseases, tongue stuck to frozen pump handle, and the dark root cellar.

    Arleta's respect and admiration for her grandmother is tender. It brings back memories of my own relationships with my two grandmother's. I too remember their stories of "when they were a little girl."

    Thank you to David C. Cook and B and B Media Group for my free review copy!

    Any of you remember reading these books as tweens? I loved the In Grandma's Attic books, but my one complaint is that the print was so small I haven't been able to interest my ten year old in them.

    These new editions take care of that issue, by making these wonderful short stories easy-to-read. And engaging illustrations have been added to several of the stories in each book. Each short story tells of an event in Arleta's grandmother's life. Everything from a hoop skirt to a quilt or a button serve as the launching point for a story that illustrates an important life truth.

    These short chapters are easy for young readers to enjoy. But the content is great for any age. If you like Little House on the Prairie, you will equally enjoy these books.

    Review: In Grandma's Attic - Grandma's Attic Series - Arleta Richardson - Originally Pub. 1974 - Reprinted 2011

    Are you looking for a timeless tale to get your daughter reading chapter books and ones with morals and Christian standards and beliefs ? Originally printed back in 1974 and reprinted in 1999 , have been reprinted once again in 2011 with funky new covers which will appeal to today's audiences. In Grandma's Attic tells the story of Arleta , who as a little girl loved exploring and hearing tales of past years , one of Arleta's favourite places in the whole wide world to explore was at her Grandma's house and in her attic. Her Grandma was one of those people who never ever chucked anything out , we read as Arleta discovers a number of things from a old hoop which used to be part of a hoopskirt who Grandma got when she was eight , a quilt her Grandma knitted and a button basket. Each piece of treasure Arleta finds in the attic spurs off a creative story from her Grandmother about how and why that piece was important to her.

    The Grandma Attic series make way for a gorgeous series which encourages children to look at the small stuff and to appreciate the things they have in the now and who knows once they reach their grandparents age, their grandchildren may be doing the exact same thing.
