Nanaville--Adventures in Grandparenting

Nanaville--Adventures in Grandparenting by Anna Quindlen is wise and funny. She is a grandmother to Arthur, now a toddler. She has learned a lot about her role and how to do it well, be helpful, but not interfering. Her trademark humor is put to good use, and her descriptions of life with a toddler are endearing. She pokes fun at herself too--she is so pleased when he first says “nana” but it turns out he wanted a banana, not her. Sweet anecdotes and wisdom are wrapped up in one package.
