A young girl delights in her grandmother's stories of days gone by, sparked by keepsakes and simple questions. Grandma shares marvelous stories of mischief, discovery, and laughter, such as a beautiful heart-shaped locket and a curl that cost Grandma more than a lock of hair.

I just finished this second book in the Grandma's Attic series. It was ok but the adults were still pretty demeaning toward the children. I did like reading the story about how the little girl tried to win a contest at school with a book being the prize. I like to collect antique books and have several in my collection that were given as prizes in school and Sunday school. At a time when most homes only had a handful of books, if that, I'm sure these books were very precious!

I enjoyed these short stories about "grandma's day" (more like great great great grandma's day for me). They have a very Little House on the Prairie feel and many of them pointed to times when faith in God was grown. One story in particular, The Button Basket, was especially fun to read. My mother owns a basket just like the one described here that was given to/bought by my great great grandmother in Eastern Oregon around the year 1900 or so. An Indian was selling them by the road. Reading the book brought to mind a couple stories my great grandmother told me and I plan to write them down in my journal before I forget.

I only have one real complaint with the book and that's the fact that it didn't seem to be a big deal for the adults in the story to shame the children for childish mistakes. Apparently, that was supposed to be humorous but I didn't find it funny.
