About this item

Flaps:

Are you eager to spend time with your grandchildren, but anxious about what to do with them?

The Really Useful Grandparents Book is the perfect solution. Its a book that you can share with your grandchildren to discover the activities that will bring you closer and entertain you both all afternoon. Packed with information on the kinds of things a child will want to learn about from the worlds most dangerous animals to Mount Everest, from Alexander the Great to Henry VIII, this book will make learning fun and engaging.
