Grandma Tell Me More Set in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Grandma Tell Me More is a collection of stories like the ones your own grandmother might tell of summers in the country where time is slower and life is simpler. The book tells about twins Ava and Joey's summer at their grandparents' cottage from going fishing with Grandpa, learning to whistle, picking blueberries and baking blueberry buns, to spending a rainy day indoors. Filled with wonderful descriptive detail, you can see the puffs of dust flying behind Grandpa's car as he drives up the country road and smell the sweet scent in the air after a summer storm. These are gentle stories that tickle the soul of the child that lives inside us all. Anyone who has summered in the Laurentians will know the place. Those who don't, will wish they did.

Most children love to hear stories, especially at bedtime. The favorite story of my two sons was told them by their father, over and over again, of which they never tired: HOW HE CAME OVER TO AMERICA FROM SCOTLAND ON A BIG BOAT. My purpose in writing this story now, of my voyage to Africa on a freighter, is that my grandchildren and great grandchildren might enjoy hearing of some of my experiences, which in the providence of God, have taken place in my life. Some statistics and a little information was acquired from the library before leaving for the various countries. This has been interwoven in my travelogue all of which was written on board ship.

Grandma, Tell Mr About the Good Old Days By: Dr. Anna Louise Scott Change is inevitable! The outcome of change, however, depends on how it is received and acted upon by each person. In today's culture of instant gratification and age of technology, each day can be a new challenge. Growing up in the Thirties, Dr. Anna Louise Scott lived when work was valued, self-reliance was necessary, and honesty, morality, and religion were a way of life. People refer to this generation as the greatest, but Dr. Scott likes to call it "The Good Old Days." Dr. Scott has observed today's children and has very grave concerns about their culture compared to prior generations. She wondered what it was like in today's average home. To find out, she visited her grandchildren. Amazed by what was occurring, Dr. Scott decided to educate her grandchildren about what it was like back in the Good Old Days. Though many stories were shared, inquisitive questions were asked with humorous answers. The children were amazed to learn what it was like "back then" and wondered how anyone survived. At the end of her tale, Dr. Scott will share the one event in her life that changed everything.
