Review: Dear Granddaughter Life Lessons From Your Grandmother by Judy Smith


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
A grandmother's wisdom with secrets of nourishing your soul, falling in and out of love, living with dignity and grace and most importantly - enjoying the journey.
Every grandmother is full of valuable wisdom. She can tell you the secrets of nourishing your soul, falling in and out of love, living with dignity and grace, and most importantly enjoying the journey. Listen closely to your grandmother when she speaks and hold on to each pearl, for therein lies tremendous wealth and wisdom.
Grandmothers are just antique little girls. ~Author Unknown

MY TAKE:
The main reason why I requested this book was because it reminded me of some of the books I saw in my grandmother's collection when I was a kid.

Dear Granddaughter Life Lessons From Your Grandmother contains life lessons on everything from finance to lifestyle.

The entries on each page are usually short but they make good points. The writing style feels similar to those New Age self-help books, but because the entries are short, even if that's not your style, you'll probably like this one anyway.

The layout, colors and pictures used are reminiscent of Hallmark Cards, which I found nice and fitting for the topic.

Thanks to NetGalley and Holland Publishing for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. It has some good lessons.
  2. The pictures, layout and fonts used are classy.
  3. It would make a nice gift.

THE BAD:

  1. The writing style may not appeal to everyone.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
What you save is more important than what you earn.
READ IT IF:

  1. You miss your grandmother.
  2. You like self-help books.
  3. You like books with pretty layouts.
