Wonderful and inspiring stories from grandparents from all walks of New Zealand life.
Grandparents Talk contains frank, sometimes astonishing, inspiring and thought-provoking interviews with a cross-section of New Zealand grandparents. Some are looking after their grandchildren full time. Some have Saturday night movie nights with theirs. This book shows the variety of grandparents in our diverse society, the heartbreak and the hilarity, and just how indispensable grandparents are. This colourful book is richly illustrated with photos of the featured grandparents and pictures drawn and paintings by school children.
