When a Child Is Born, So Is a Grandmother (Main Street Editions Gift Books)
The warmth and whimsy of Mary Engelbreit's work is even better when shared with a friend-and When a Child Is Born, So Is a Grandmother is the perfect way to spread the joy.
When a Child Is Born, So Is a Grandmother makes the perfect gift for the new grandmother or grandma-to-be. Illustrated by the one-and-only Mary Engelbreit and authored by Jan Girando, this book speaks to the very essence of the close bond that grandmothers will forever share with their precious grandchildren.
Let Mom and Dad handle the discipline and the scolding and leave grandma to do the cuddling and the holding. One of the most popular pieces of art from America's favorite illustrator is her "When a Child is Born, So Is a Grandmother" image. Featuring that well-known drawing as its centerpiece, this book illustrates the joy and excitement every grandmother feels when their precious grandchild arrives into the world.

I bought this book as gifts for my mother and mother-in-law and couldn't have been happier with it. It is full of colorful, vibrant pictures and the words truly capture what a Grandmother is all about. Any Grandma would love this book!
Cute. but not great

I thought there would be some kind of cutesy story in this book or at least catchy quotes, but I found neither. The book is really small and you'll be done with it in about 5 minutes at most. Seriously not worth the $[...] bucks i spent. If you plan on letting someone know that they are about to become a nana then, yeah, I suppose this would be fine. Other than that please save your money and buy something with an imagination.
