The Book

This sweet book is a tender, loving letter to grandma that is perfect for all ages. 

"Dear Grandma, 

You're amazing in so many ways - it's true.

So here is a love letter from me, to you. " 

Grandmas are held in high esteem by so many grandchildren and this book celebrates these wonderful relationships!  The text expresses boundless adoration for her and the illustrations are very well done.  They are full of activity and personality which enrich the powerful message of the mutual bonds of love.  

Included are pages to write or draw special messages to Grandma making this a perfect gift... a treasure that will become a coveted keepsake for years to come. 

There is also an opportunity to download a free personalized "World's Best Grandma" certificate from Put Me In The Story.  I love the thought and creativity of the book and I highly recommend it.

About the Illustrator

John Joseph’s passion for art appeared at an early age, while living in Orlando, Florida. As a young boy, he was inspired by the many trips to visit the animation studios just down the road at the happiest place on Earth. It was very rare that you would spot him without a pencil and sketchbook, creating stories and drawing away. John Joseph’s love of art continued through school and he went on to get an art education degree from Colorado State University and a masters degree from Lesley University. You could say that John has never really left school, as he graduated and went straight back to elementary school to teach visual arts. There, he is constantly inspired by the imagination of his students, and often includes them in his stories and illustrations. But the best part is, he has several months off throughout the year, to play with his family in the Colorado mountains and create lots of art!
