grandma's cookie jar Birthday Month Give-Away - That's What Grandmas Do!

Josiah is four, Caleb is two and they understand there are just things grandma "does" . . . for example, grandma loves to give surprises! grandma loves to give hugs and kisses! grandma loves to tell them she loves them! grandma loves to make up stories with them! grandma loves to bake cookies with them - and lets them sample the ingredients! grandma loves to make sandwiches and cinnamon toast in heart or snowman shapes! grandma loves to clap and cheer for Josiah and Caleb when they sing and dance! grandma is always so happy to see Super Josiah and Super Caleb and know they will, "save the day!" The list goes on, but suffice it to say, there are things which are just what grandma does!

So, when I saw the book, That's What Grandmas Do! from Hallmark, I had to check and see if it was available for review and give-away . . . and I was so delighted when they told me it was!

I love Hallmark's recordable storybooks and this one is certainly one which this grandma is looking forward to giving to my sweet grandsons! I love the text, "If every wish I make with love could magically come true, I'd gladly spend them all on you. That's what grandmas do!"  I love the entire story, but the ending is perfect: "And if I had just one more wish, here's what my wish would be: it's that you'll always know how much, YOU are loved . . . by ME!" That's what grandmas do!!! Can you see why I love this book?!!! 

As I mentioned, not only did Hallmark send one That's What Grandmas Dobook for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away!
