Sort order. Start your review of Grandma's Poetry Book. I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I thought this was a wonderful collection of poetry written by a Grandmother for her family and for all the doting grandmommas out there.
I requested this in order to see things from my own mother's point of view as she herself is a new nanna. The words were so heartfelt and I enjoyed the journey surrounded by gorgeous grandaughters and grandsons who the author loves very much. The book is described as an emotional journey from beginning to end Just the odd two thats all, which would of made it flow a lot better. My second and last gripe was that I felt some of the words were only chosen for the sake of making the poems rhyme even if it didn't make a lot of sense.
This gripe wasn't prominent enough for me to give this collection any less than 4 stars as I enjoyed it very much. I did have a favourite which turned my face into this I was really hoping this book would be something I could buy for my children's grandparents. It just really wasn't the whole package. I hope more grandmothers follow suit in trying to make something similar. Perhaps another author would make it a bit more what I am looking for.
I loved the sincerity of the author. She obviously is a completely dedicated grandmother and mother.
