Really good book that my boys greatly enjoy. Teaches lots of biblical lessons such as honesty and forgiveness in a way that is unforgettable.
Nicola Mansfield
Another wonderful wholesome book of stories about Grandma's memories of when she was a little girl on the farm back in the late 1800s in Michigan. Her age is not mentioned often this time around but six and nine years old are mentioned, with the majority of the stories taking place with her best friend Sarah Jane at around the age of nine. This makes the time frame compatible with book one. The short prelude stories of Grandma and Arleta have become a bit more involved and Arleta herself has bec...more

I remember these books well from the first time they were published, in 1974, when I was just a little girl, the age of one of my daughters. I loved this series back then, and I saved the original set for my daughters to read someday. Now they are back, in beautiful, colorful covers and black and...more

Product Description
No one can tell a tale quite like Grandma. With her natural gift of storytelling, she recounts story after story from her childhood and life around the turn of the century. Her granddaughter listens intently to stories about an old rag doll that seems to come alive and a newborn goat dancing stiff-legged in the old farm kitchen. With the feeling of a simpler time, Grandma's entertaining sagas will captivate your children.

This is the second book in this delightful series. I ab...more
Again, the author is telling more stories from the grandma she lived with in Michigan. Her grandma tells of things that happened in the cabin and the farm house she and her parents lived in, along with her two brothers. It seems that they had fun getting into a little trouble now and then. In this book, you will find sixteen more stories, treasures from her grandma’s attic as she calls it. These are of some of the things she and her brother got into as youngsters. In this one, there is a time an...more
The Grandma’s Attic Series by the late Arleta Richardson is a compilation of stories from a simpler time long ago that children of all ages will enjoy. Arleta took the stories she heard from her grandmother while she was growing up and put them onto paper for all to enjoy. Many of the stories have a moral to them and readers are invited to remember with Arleta, her favorite times of exploring Grandma’s old house and life on the farm in Michigan.

The way these are written and illustrated reminded...more
Charming and I n destructive second installment

This sweet and morally instructive little book is a joy to share with my kids (3, 4 & 6). Each stand alone chapter is engaging and entertaining.
Grandma’s Attic series is a fun, enjoyable series that you will treasure. The first book in this series is In Grandma’s Attic. I read this book and More Stories from Grandma’s Attic. I liked hearing about how when Mabel was a little girl, just as much as Arleta did. What I loved the most about these books is that the stories did have lessons with them. All the mischief that Mabel got into was entertaining to read. Besides Mabel, it was fun to get to know the rest of the family…Pa, Ma, and her tw...more
I love this young reader series. Read them to my kids when they were little and every once in awhile I'll pick one up and read it again.
Amber Fuller
Perfect to read aloud to kids. We all enjoyed these stories from days gone by. Even though the perspective is that of a young girl, my 9 yr old son liked these just as much as my 6 yr old daughter. As a parent, I loved that each of the chapters tell a story that highlights a lesson learned during the course of a young girls' spirited childhood back in the olden days. The morals and character lessons still apply today. I hope to instill these kind of values in my own children. I'm thrilled that t...more

The series are so so funny!!! :)
I really love this series. This collection is really great. It was my first time reading it through with the kids, and although they are a bit on the young side for these stories, they were great to listen to as a family. I even have been using Mabel as an example when I discipline!

Some standout stories in this collection were "The Stranger" and "Grandma and the Slate." "Grandma's Day Off" is a great lesson and the one I have been trying to use in "teachable" moments with my little Mabel-like ga...more

Recommends it for: Christian families
Grandma has a story for everything and her granddaughter is more than willing to listen to Grandma's tales of mischief. Why? Because she knows there is a lesson to be learned in Grandma's recounting!

These wholesome stories by Arleta Richardson fit nicely into a Christian homeschool curriculum.

We read this one for school and while my daughter enjoyed it, I found the stories rather preachy which to me detracted from the enjoyment. I might look at the other books in the series for the fun of it, but I don't feel a huge urgency to read the rest.
Our three daughters loved the Grandma's attic books, enough to re-read them many times. And I enjoyed reading these to them. These books inspire me to pass along my stories to my children and (future) grandchildren.
