           WINNER BRONZE MEDAL, READERS' FAVORITE 2013    In this story of an extended family, three grandmas accidentally buy the same book for their granddaughter, and they then launch into a gift-purchasing battle for supremacy. The well-intentioned grannies race all over the Internet and town to buy the best present, the one that will win the affections of the child. The poor postman is the one left with delivering gifts of clothes, toys, DVDs, and trinkets until the little girl's home is packed to the rafters with stuff.   Finally the little girl emerges as the voice of reason and points out she cannot wear or play with all of the stuff being bought, but instead wants to spend time making memories with each grandma.   In this day and age of families with multitudes of relatives, the message in Battle of the Grandmas is that time is more important than stuff comes throughloud and clear.

From the Author:

This book was a labor of love for my daughter, and her well-meaning three grandmothers. It is based on a true story, and in fact was written the afternoon my duplicate package arrived from Amazon. I hired a student artist to do the illustrations, and am proud to say he now has an award-winning book to put in his art school portfolio.

Battle of the Grandmas is not at all like my other book, Courtesy Bootcamp: a not-so-gentle reminder to live by The Golden Rule. In fact, it was written before I jumped into the public speaking world and had to write a book to accompany my seminars.

From the Back Cover:

A perfect-sized rhyming book for readers from Kindergarten through graduate school. The message within is that "Time spent is more important that stuff bought." Kids and adults alike are inundated with stuff, and stuff updates, and are forgetting the most valuable currency people have is our attention. We never know how much time we get, so this little book contains a valuable lesson for all. Enjoy your TIME together.
