A book of memories for my grandchildren is an exciting new concept in South Africa. Essentially, the book is a record of the events that took place in the grandparent's life.
The questions in the book which the grandparent must answer, give a picture of the personality, characteristics and life of the grandparent. There are questions about the grandparent's childhood years, family history (a family tree can be completed), his/her years as an adult, the wedding day, as well as questions about general aspects of his/her life and a section where the grandparent's opinions on some issues are asked. There is ample space given to make the book personal with photographs, recipes, and the grandparent's signature, which will make the book a precious keepsake and memento.
Sometimes we neglect to ask our grandparents about their lives and only when they are no longer there, we realise it is too late. Now grandchildren can have a tangible book full of memories that can be passed on from generation to generation.
