About the Book
We all can imagine what children think when they first see the old black and white family photos hanging in the hallway, framed on the mantle, or carefully tabbed into place in the family photo album. It s certainly enough to make grandchildren say, Aren't you glad the world's finally in color today!
Grandma, Aren't You Glad The World's Finally in Color Today! is a story in rhyme that takes readers on a then and now journey through time. Narrated by a grandmother, the story compares her own mother's life and times to those of her grandchildren. Side by side vintage and full color photos contrast fashion, schools, transportation, entertainment, technology, culture and the arts from the Great Depression and World War II years to those of today.
This book creates an opportunity for readers to share their own family tree, and gives grandparents a way to start conversations about who we are and where we came from, and fulfill their role as family historian.
My Take on the Book
In this rhyming book, Lori Stewart has shown today's children what their grandmother and great-grandmother's lives were like in black and white. Our children today do not understand that TV's of long ago were not in color. . Children led different lives full of chores and playing outdoors rather than watching TV and having electronic games.
The book if fun to read and the photographs assist beautifully in bring the text to life for children.
I enjoyed reading this book and feel my children will find it informational too.
