Author Cathy Livingstone takes a playful approach to the task of choosing grandmother names. Forsaking more scholarly methods, she draws upon stories she has heard and read, as well as making ample use of what she terms poetic license. The result is a book that is both informative and amusing. Various lists, quotations, fun facts and a quiz will add to your pleasure.
Attractive in design, this book contains a wide sampling of grandmother names and grandfather names, along with some stories both touching and humorous about grandparents and grandchildren. About three hundred names are listed, but the stories included could inspire grandparents-to-be to invent special names of their own. Author Lauren Charpio has created a book that is beautifully designed as well as fun to read.
This little book contains over 700 grandparents' names, nicely organized and minus the fluff. It lists trendy names and playful names, as well as the more standard "heritage names." Lin Wellford, known for her popular books on the art of painting on rocks, has joined with her daughter, Skye Pifer, to create this valuable reference.
