Publisher's Summary

Do you love hearing your grandparent’s stories when you spend time with them? Is it difficult for you to figure out what questions to ask? If you want to maximize the quality of your time and learn more about their life, then keep reading.

Your grandparents have played a larger role in your life than you even realize. Between raising and influencing your parents and being a part of your life, they have played a pivotal role in the things you have learned. It’s not too late to start learning more from and about these pillars in your life.

When you utilize the questions found in this book, you will discover:

  • Life lessons from stories that can enhance and change your life’s value system
  • Entertainment through reliving positive memories of the past
  • Your grandparent’s perspective on historical events and how those events affected them and your family
  • The story of how they met the love of their life and overcame the challenges life brought them
  • A revitalized memory of experiences of your youth from an entirely different point of view
  • How differently your grandparents' view things right now, having the ability to look back and reflect on their life’s work with clarity
  • And much more...

Even if you grew up with a strong presence from your grandparents in your life, there are many questions you wouldn’t have had the opportunity, context, or thought to ask.

On the other hand, if you grew up without having your grandparents around, it would be foolish to miss the opportunity to learn from this part of your family tree while you have the chance.

So, if you want to learn more about your grandparent’s stories, to learn from their journey through life and to transform these stories into a memoir, then scroll up and click the “buy now” button now!

I loved this!

This book (guide) for Grandparents to write their story is amazing! I sent it as a gift to my mother. What a fabulous way to communicate with your children and grandchildren and for the family to learn about their grandparents by reading their story. What an incredible idea!

What a great idea for a book!

I love, love, love this workbook! I'm going to answer the questions and give it as a gift to my nephew so that my memories will live on long after I'm gone. Great for a birthday, Christmas gift or anytime. Don't wait until it's too late to preserve your treasured family tales.

Excellent !

This book has some excellent prompts and questions, it is funny because I was just discussing with a friend the other day that I feel like my generation is so disconnected from our elders, but this book will surely help us get to know their history and stories so much better. Love it !

Unique

This seems like a nice way for my preteen children to get to know my parents on a more personal level. I like the idea of more books like this. I could very well see a project where my kids create a scrap book with old and new pictures as well as several answers to these questions. I feel like this will be something we do in late summer or early fall at our Camp. unique idea for sure.

Brilliant!

My grandad wrote his memoires fortunately a few years before he died on letter paper. He was a soldier in the second world war and was stationed in Italy and Egypt among other places. I've many times talked to my grandma about how they stopped their food going off without fridges and coped without electric lights etc. It's incredible to think how the world was when my grandparents entered it compared to how it is now.

I wish I'd had this book twenty years ago and filmed myself asking these questions to all the people of that generation I've known and lost.

If you're reading this, and you have an elderly loved, one take the chance to go through this book and pick out your favourite questions and with permission get a recording of it. Not only will you regret it later in life if you don't, but nowadays with so many new ways of disseminating information like YouTube, it could be the whole world that loses out!

Amazing book to help uncover your grandparents history!

This book goes into extensive detail with the nature of questions to ask your grandparents in order to make this memoir as comprehensive as possible. No questions will be left unasked. This is a beautiful way to preserve their memories while providing you with a wealth of family history.

Now go visit those grandparents!

excellent book , you should always spend as much time with your grandparents as you can , most people don't see their grandparents enough and take them for granted and know very little about their lives.this book is really helpful as to what to talk to your grandparents about, the book teaches you what to ask such as what they done for a living, where they went on holiday and just questions on every day life , have a listen then go and visit your grandparents and ask them everything u learned in this book , im sure some of the stories they will tell you will fascinate you and bring you closer together

Knew my grandma much more!

I was always curious about what my grandma experienced. She is kind and amiable but I was too shy to ask her to tell her stories.
This book gave me the courage to ask specific questions to her. :)
It felt so great and thought-provoking to view things from their perspectives.

Thanks to the author for this great idea to be more connected to my closest family. Wonderful audiobook ever!

Unique concept and well executed

I really liked the idea of this book. Especially because it's something I wish I had the chance to do with my grandfather before he passed away a few years ago. I think this could be a special bonding moment between grandparents and grandchildren. Tons of useful questions, including some you probably wouldn't think of by yourself.

Awesome!

This is a great audiobook that I can use and ask my grandparents about their life. It provides all the questions I can ask which I couldn't think of myself. This will be great way to spend hours and hours with my grandparents and asking them about their life.

A sweet, thought-provoking book!

As someone who hasn't always had the closest relationship with his grandparents, this has really hit home how much we can learn from their amazing lives. I really am surprised at how much this book has taught me about my own life as a result of learning more about my grandparents. I want to thank the authors as this book is a real gem!

Amazing way to get to know your grandparents more

This book is an awesome way to interact with your grandparents, especially if they are overseas like mine. I sometimes struggle to know what to say with my grandpa as he doesn’t speak much English anymore, but these questions really helped me get to know him again, which is something so rare and special.

Thank you for this amazing book, 199 questions will last me a long time and I will never run out of conversation again.

I highly recommend giving this a listen and getting to know your grandparents again on a much deeper level!

What a wonderful idea!

This is a wonderful way to spend a long family evening! You can use the questions as they are, or as an inspiration for a more tailored set of questions specific to your own family. I'm actually planning to record my grandparent's answers and then transcribe them into a memoir as the book suggests :)
A great audiobook.

In love!!

As soon as I saw this, I thought it was a GREAT idea! I loved being able to listen to this with my grandpa. He grew up traveling all over and had so many jobs I never knew about. The questions are so interesting, and it really made such a wonderful bonding experience. Thank you for this book!!
