My Grandma and Me is the book every grandmother wants to share with her toddler-age grandchildren. Each devotion includes a scripture, a rhyme explaining the theme of the verse, and an interactive song or prayer. In addition to the fun yet faith-filled words, children will enjoy the sweet full-color art throughout the book that has a nostalgic tone for Grandma. The book closes with additional scriptures grandma can use to pass along her faith: the Lord’s Prayer, Ten Commandments, 23rd Psalm, Beatitudes, and a special prayer for her grandchildren. This delightful book will not only become Grandmother’s favorite, but it will leave a lasting and important impression on the faith development of many toddlers.
The introduction of the book also gives grandmothers who are far-away from their grandkids tips on using the book via phone or Skype.

I LOVE this book!! It is so sweet and thoughtful. The illustrations are beautiful. The scripture in it is also short and sweet… just right for the little ones! Alexandra is just now at the stage where you can sit and actually read a book to her. I thought this was a perfect gift for her and Grandma to share!! Grandma enjoyed the devotions and I loved watching them read together!! We definitely recommend this to Grandma’s who want to share devotions with their grandchildren or a gift for your Grandma!!
