Gotcha, Grandpa! More Letters to Grandchildren.
Smith, Carl B.
Letters and notes between grandchildren and grandparents can bring mutual benefits. This book shows grandparents how to start writing, what to write about, how to make writing fun and easy, how to get replies, and how to write memorable letters. The book, a sequel to "With Love, Grandma" (1998), provides sample letters on numerous topics for all ages. One of the issues it addresses is character development. The book's first few chapters seek to develop the traits crucial to gaining self-esteem and confidence. The book also covers citizenship. Following an introduction, the book is divided into these chapters: Writing Letters to Children; Growing Inside and Out; Letters Connect the Generations; Relating to Others; Becoming a Citizen; and Quick Ideas for Quick Letters.
