      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

The NEW Best Books for Kids!

2 posts in this topic

We haven't done this in a while, so thought I'd ask... what do you think are the best books for kids?

Please feel free to include classic faves or newer choices...

Depends on ages, of course, as well as interests. #3 GB is currently on Harry Potter #4, age 9. GB#2, also 9 reads about old cars, engines and other things that move...he's getting the Lucy Hawking novels for Christmas, Stephen Hawking is the technical advisor for these, so the math is right. #1 GB is a big fan of Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson" character, but I think he's read them all, age 12.

The other 5 are early or non readers (3, 4, 4, 6, 6) so they really like to be read to. That's my job if I'm around at bed time....they pile on me like puppies...the very littles always say they need to stay up for the 6yo story too....The 6yo girlie is a stand-out reader....loves it. The older 3 are always in earshot when the stories are read...they say they're too told, but there are 3 sets of Dumbo sized ears loitering around.
