    Wonderful, wholesome tales of farm life in Michigan in approximately the 1870s. Arleta Richardson was actually brought up by her grandmother, but in the books she comes for extended visits and finds many objects in Grandma's attic and just around the house that provoke Grandma into telling Arleta the story surrounding the object from her own childhood. Or Arleta and Grandma are doing something together and by asking a question or simple conversation will bring about another tale of Grandma's childhood. The stories in this book centre around when Grandma was between about four and nine years of age. They tell of a wonderful, harder yet simpler life, when items such as a water pump made life so much easier. These are tales of a little girl or her older brothers getting into mischief, being downright naughty or simply becoming caught up in embarrassing moments. Some of the stories have what could be called a lesson to teach (or a moral) but they are gentle and not the emphasis of every story. The books in this series are classified as Christian fiction, and while the family believes in God, mentions their beliefs, and acts accordingly this book is no more Christian than any other mainstream story that features a Christian family, such as the Ingalls family. Rather than telling one cohesive story the book is more of a collection of vignettes with each chapter telling a new reminiscence from Grandma's childhood. There are small details that recur from time to time in later chapters that hold the book together well. Lots of fun and humour which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    While more that a bit outdated, this book is certainly entertaining.
    A young girl listens to her grandmothers stories when she was a young girl herself. She gets in and out of trouble all the time. She learns little morals with each scrape she gets into, and feels bad about getting into trouble, but then goes and does something else again!
    The stories are not in any time order but all when grandma was still a child.

    Imagine my excited surprise when I got these sweet and adorable books! Now, why on earth would I be EXCITED about children's books???? I thought you might ask that. So here's why. This year I am turning the big 3-0. Yep, I'm THREE decades old this year. But, about 21 years ago, I went to a yard sale with my mom and grandma, and purchase this really SWEET little book for 25 CENTS! It was entitled In Grandma's Attic by Arleta Richardson, published in 1974. It was really falling apart but it was such a sweet little book and I was really getting into the reading thing so I added it to my mom and grandma's purchases from this yard sale. I still have that book. It was sitting on my bookshelf when I got these two. I didn't put the connection to it until I started reading these sweet books, and things started sounding familiar and coming back to me (gosh, I sound like I have amnesia---that's because I read this book TWENTY ONE years ago!). I went and got the falling apart book and compared it....sure enough, it's the SAME book, just broken down into more than one book! I was so happy, because this was one of my FAVORITE books growing up, to pull of the shelf and read. It took me back to my grandma's house and made me feel like I was up in her attic (yep, she's got an attic quite similar to the one from these stories!). So, now I am the proud owner of David C. Cook's ORIGINAL 1974 publication of In Grandma's Attic AND the 2011 re-publication of In Grandma's Attic series, books 1 and 2. Now that I have that little story out of the way, I will tell you that these sweet stories are PERFECT for all those young readers out there. They take the children on a trip to grandma's house and some make you laugh out loud too :-). These are the kinds of stories I wish were made for all the kids now a days instead of the Twilight books. I definitely recommend these books for all the children (and, I recommend it to all the adults out there who like to read stories like this----they're warm and inviting and bring back memories!) out there who love to read. Five stars and high praises to Arleta Richardson!

    I really wanted to enjoy this- I have memories of how much I liked it as a child. I guess, though, I've been spoiled by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Every little story in this book just skims the surface- I kept wanting more depth.
