Share article facebook twitter google pinterest Today’s blog is an important one; it’s all about how to look after one very special person (two if you’re really lucky!) … That’s right, your Granny! Margaret McAllister and Holly Sterling’s fantastic guide to treating your Granny properly is the best place to start, and the best way to keep your Granny happy, smiley and feeling loved! ‘15 Things Not to do with a Granny’ is the hilarious follow-up to the hugely popular ‘15 Things Not to do with a Baby’ – with the latest addition to the series a wacky insight into the imaginative world of a child. With 15 zany and surreal scenarios that you SHOULDN’T!!! put your Granny through – Margaret McAllister eventually reaches the finale of the story: that you should love your Granny as much as you can! Featuring lively illustrations from Holly Sterling (two time Karate National Champion Holly Sterling!) – every spread is full of character and energy, and the occasional colourful crocodile of course! We love ‘15 Things not to do with a Granny’, but we know no one knows your Granny better than you do! Can you think of 15 things you KNOW your Granny wouldn’t do? Would she want to ride on a rollercoaster?! Would she play in the mud with you at the park?! See if you can think of 15 things of your own, and then write them down in a notepad or on a piece of paper, maybe even illustrate it with a few pictures! But most importantly, when you’ve thought of 15 things – finish with how much your Granny means to you – and a few things you could do to make her happy! Like breakfast in bed! Or lots of cuddles! The one thing you’ve got to remember however, is that Grannies are incredible people! You should never think that as you get older there are less and less things that you can do. Everyone has things they won’t do, but it’s also worth remembering some of the amazing things that Grannies, Great Grannies and Great Great Grannies have accomplished all over the world: This Granny from America graduated high school at the age of 73, when she could easily have said, “Forget it!” This 84-year-old woman asked her grandchild for her first tablet. He installed an art program and left her alone for just 30 minutes! Here are some other amazing things accomplished by some amazing Granny! Dorothy Davenhill Hirsch became the oldest person to visit the North Pole at 89! Gladys Burrill from Hawaii ran a marathon at 92 years-old! Dr Leila Denmark was an American paediatrician who continued to work until 103! So while you shouldn’t put an Elephant in her bed or fill her handbag with spaghetti, you should also never forget (and never stop telling her!) just how amazing your Granny is! 15 Things Not To Do With a Granny Author: Margaret McAllister Illustrated by: Holly Sterling Format: Paperback / softback, 32 Pages ISBN: 9781847809131 Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books Buy from an Online Retailer US: UK: $9.99 / £6.99 Share article facebook twitter google pinterest If you have any comments on this article please contact us or get in touch via social media.
