"In Grandma's Attic" by Arleta Richardson Book Review

I recently finished the first book in the Grandma's Attic Series, and it was charming. Simply charming. In Grandma's Attic by Arleta Richardson is my kind of book through and through. Each short story was a joy to read. They may have been intended for children to read, but really, they are perfect for any age.

Wholesome and sweet, the author recalls being a child who asked questions about her grandmother's own childhood as they quilted, cooked, cleaned, and played with buttons together.

Christian values shine through, and the family openly praises the Lord. Yet, this is not a preachy "too good to be true" family. Grandma Mabel was a mischievous little girl, and -- more often than not -- we are hearing about how she made mistakes and learned from them. Funny, my own childhood memories are much the same way.

I will be reading these stories to my own children in the near future and plan to look for the other books in the series.
