About the Book

A Week At Grandma's is a perfect book for families to read together to spark conversations about what life was like when today's grandparents were growing up. It is a peek at life in the 1960's, a time before electronics found their way into every kid's hands, a time when daylight was for doing things outdoors and screen time meant getting to watch Andy Griffith on the black and white TV. Staying with their grandparents each year is a family tradition for two young sisters. At first glance it seems there is nothing to do, but the girls discover that there are big adventures to be had. While they play in the creek, run through cow pastures, help make biscuits, and listen to stories about the squares that make up the quilts they sleep under, they learn unexpected lessons from their grandparents. Even many years later, they remember those times as just perfect.

About the Author

Donna and Sandy (twins) grew up near a small town in southern Virginia, where they spent a lot of time playing outdoors. Both graduated from James Madison University and eventually returned to their hometown to raise their families. Donna started her career with Burlington Industries, later moved into the education field as an elementary teacher, and is now a specialist for English Language Learners. She lives on a farm with her husband Michael; they have lots of cows and room for the grandkids to roam. Sandy taught Kindergarten and First Grade for 37 years. She lives in a neighborhood near town with her husband Marshall, two cats, and a dog. This is her second children’s book project: she and her son and daughter collaborated on Cooper Cares, a book featuring her first grandson.
