This heartwarming collection shares, in their own words, what children have heard and learned from their grandmothers. Children aged five to thirteen reveal a loving and often humorous image of how profoundly our grandmothers touch our lives.

After the death of her mother (whose "gramma-isms" were immortalized in Legacy: Gifts from a Grandmother by Libbey Koppinger), Sally Koppinger received a collection of grandmother memories from the students at St. Joseph Elementary School in Ohio, where she is principal. Now Sally and her daughter, Libbey, compile these new gramma-isms to remind us of our grandchildren's universally simple insights and refreshingly impish views in Legacies: Children Celebrate Their Grandmothers.

Legacies shares the wisdom and inspiration over 700 children learned from their grandmothers:

"Try to color on the paper." Steven, kindergarten

"Don't eat all of the cookie dough when you bake." Zachary, first grade

"A face without freckles is like a night without stars." Jake, fourth grade

"What do you know? Take a minute to tell me." Robbie, fifth grade

"Patience is needed while fishing." Chelsea, fifth grade

"Always eat what your mother makes for dinner even if it's gross." Lisa, sixth grade

"Love is the best medicine for any ache or pain." Mary, eighth grade

From the Back Cover:

This delightful collection celebrates the universal bond between grandmothers and grandchildren. In their own words, children aged five to thirteen reveal a loving and often humorous image of how profoundly our grandmothers touch our lives.

"These children echo the very best messages to be passed from generation to generation. They remind us that life is both precious and fun. And we learn that no matter how old we are, our grammas stay in our hearts forever." Sally and Libbey Koppinger, from the Introduction
