My Thoughts…

This is a cute short story, not really a story more a list of great ideas that every family, parent, or grandparent should check out for their children/grandchildren.    I always pride myself on being involved with my child, making time for them, and being their biggest supporter.   This book opened my eyes to things I may have missed and things I should try.  I loved all the great suggestions that are appropriate for younger children and for older children.   I found this an easy book to page through and pick up implement ideas with my family.    I am sure many great memories will be made with my family thanks to Little Things Long Remembered.   

Susan Newman, PhD wrote a great resource to first time parents or larger families.   There is something in here for every income, most of the ideas are free or extremely low cost.   There is also something for every family based on their interests and capabilities.
