Hannah and I have just finished reading In Grandma's Attic by Arleta Richardson and we wanted to share it as it is such a lovely book!
The late Arleta Richardson grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan with her grandmother. There, her storyteller grandmother recounted memories of her childhood and Arleta retells those tales vividly.
This book is a collection of wonderful memories of Christian family farm life in Michigan in the late 1800's. The stories are warm and funny and Hannah has really enjoyed them.
Reading the stories, with their lovely moral messages inspired Hannah to get her prayer book out tonight, and she surprised me by choosing and reading quite a few prayers before bed.
I love the way stories spark her interest in so many different things, and i love that she enjoys books so much :-)
