Welcome! Thank you for visiting my web page.

As a child I loved reading and writing. Lists, journals, notes, letters, and school projects. If it involved paper and pencils I was happy! When I became a mother I made sure my boys were surrounded by books. Several times during the school year they would bring home their Scholastic order forms and I couldn’t resist buying several books.

Now as a grandmother I enjoy reading to my grandchildren so the leap from book lover to writer was natural. I wanted to write about the importance, love and fun of the grandmother relationship in a child’s life. Hope you enjoy the rhymes about grandmas, what we call them and the fun they bring (and the treats too) to our lives.
