Review: Grandparents Minnesota Style Grandparents, Minnesota Style, by Mike Link and Kate Crowley. Adventure Publications, Inc., 2007. 170 pp., soft- cover, $14.95 At first glance, the book, Grandparents, Minnesota Style, seems like a concise listing of kid-friendly activities geared toward "grand-boomers." As I read, however, I was impressed not only by the omission of the obvious commercial choices, but even more by the writers' personal reasons for writing the book. The husband-and-wife authors, Mike Link and Kate Crowley, note the changes in our society that have made activities, such as daily farm life, home cooking, or tree climbing, no longer a part of most children's experiences. "Parents are scheduling rather than parenting, channeling rather than nurturing, coaching rather than modeling." Crowley and Link seek to fill the gap left by the demands on today's working parents and encourage grandparents to take a greater role. This is a thoughtful collection of activities that gives grandparents opportunities to talk to kids about the largerworld, encourage their creativity, and get them to ask questions. Each destination or activity has a section called "bonding and bridging" that suggests the type of questions or discussions a grandparent might wish to explore with a grandchild. These are not meant to be "lessons," so much as an opportunity to share values and history I am amazed at the ways my grand parents have influenced my adult life. Both of my father's parents were pioneer children, raised in western Nebraska. What I remember most are the summer afternoons spent picking cherries fron their backyard trees because we were light enough to climb into the upper branches, feeding stale bread to the ducks in the coca park, and the yearly trip to the Omah; Indian Reservation for their powwow. When wild roses suddenly appeare( in my long-cultivated flower garden las year, I immediately thought of my grand mother and left them there to grow. Can we really ever know the impact of digging in the garden on a summer afrternoon, listening to songbirds, and pointing out wild flowers to a small child? I certainly do- and so do the authors of Grandpparents Minnesota Style. By Sharon Weneland--Sharon Wetteland"The Standard" (11/16/2007)
