As I read Grammy Do… I saw the story not only through the eyes of Sandy Richards and Lori Hohmann, but also through the eyes of a child. In Grammy Do… you will see that special bond between the child and their grandmother. Grandmothers are so special because they allow the child to do things that their parents otherwise wouldn’t allow them to do. The grandmother will always hold a special place in the heart of a child, even when the child becomes an adult. It’s those warm cookies, cold milk, and other special memories that make a grandmother so special. In Grammy Do… you will be taken back to those precious moments with your grandmother. –This text refers to the paperback edition.
