The Informed and Inspired Grandparent

When I was about to become a grandmother for the first time, I went looking for a book that was a combination of information, insights, and inspiration. I couldn’t find that book – so I've written it. Good to Be Grand: Making the most of your grandchild's first year will be published by Benbella Books in spring 2016. And Hillary Rodham Clinton, a relatively new grandmother herself, has written an up-close and personal foreword to the book.


I'm eager to share this journey with you as we go stage-by-stage through all the milestones that happen during the first year of life. We'll answer questions that are important to all grandparents: What’s Still True? What’s New? What Can YOU Do?


This area of the IWD web site will feature information and anecdotes about grandparents -- and I invite you to respond with your insights and questions.
