I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
“Step by step, with a wobble . . .”
As her precious one begins to walk, Grandmother marvels at the new baby’s adventures in growing up. She shares her loving memories of all the joys and the worrying bumps of her grandchild’s many attempts at walking in this third book of the series.
Just as the title says, My Grandchild’s First Steps is primarily focused on the milestone of being able to walk as a young toddler. An excellent read aloud and bonding tool, this book is perfect at capturing the emotions and truths of the daunting task of learning to walk.
Just like the other books in this series, it is written from the perspective of a grandmother swept away by her blessing of a grandchild and being able to watch him/her grow. The words are calm and almost rhythmic, and only rhyming in a few places. The pictures are excellent at capturing the words and are very engaging, sure to pull in and encourage the imaginations of the young listeners.
There are a few spots where the words don’t seem to flow quite right and some that seem to be out of place in the story, but when read to a child they shouldn’t stand out too much.
Overall, My Grandchild’s First Steps would make a great baby shower gift or a gift to a grandmother from a young child. I give it 4 out of 5 stars and look forward to more books from this author.
