Wondrous Child: The Joys and Challenges of Grandparenting

Publication Date: March 27, 2012

“Lately, as I deal with two adolescents and two more on the way, I have come to think that the entire point of parenthood might be grandparenthood. Certainly I expect it will be more fun. This delightfully honest collection of essays illuminates the loving, yet complicated —even occasionally fraught— relationships between parents, grandparents, and the children they all love. A must-read across the generations.”
