  • Father of five and grandfather of many, Payleitner (The Newlywed Year) presents ideas for creating a legacy to last through generations. He advocates the creation of warm and fuzzy traditions, sharing the importance of even simple gestures such as a thumbs-up at the end of each video chat or texting a weekly joke to each grandchild. He evaluates the benefits of both living close or far away from grandchildren and ideas for keeping them near to one's heart in either situation. He also suggests ways to discuss one's own hard-earned life lessons and examines several topics, such as keeping a bucket list of experiences to have with grandchildren, choosing the right name to be called as a grandparent, and creating kid-friendly spots in one's home for play and exploration. He also offers ideas for helping grandchildren grow in their talents, while also sharing your unique legacy with them. VERDICT Questions and activities abound in this book. Most grandparents will find guidance that resonates for their unique situation.
