Grandmother’s Tin Box is a beautiful story of the close knit relationship between grandmother and granddaughter, and the heritage that we leave the next generation. A sentimental read illustrated from the heart.

Such a beautiful book to be shared between grandmothers and their granddaughters. I'm a retired preschool teacher, mother of seven and grandmother of two, so I've read my fair share of children's books! When I'm choosing a children's book, I'm usually drawn to the illustrations first, and the illustrations in this book are so beautiful. And the story about the relationship between a granddaughter and her beloved grandmother is so precious. They are both diamonds! I loved it!

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with this book for free in exchange for my review! All opinions are my own.

As someone in their twenties who has had a very close knit relationship with with my grandma (who now has dementia unfortunately), this book made me feel very nostalgic. I really loved this sweet and charming story and I highly recommend it. So beautifully written and all around feel good. <3

This book is tender and wonderful. With beautiful illustrations this book tells the story of a special connection between a grandmother and her granddaughter. As a reader who is incredibly close to her grandparents, this book warmed my heart.

I really love Grandmother's Tin Box by Judith M Ackerman! Grandmother's Tin Box is a sweet book about a Grandmother and Granddaughter's relationship--the stories and memories they share. It's beautifully illustrated and written. I love how the Grandmother passed on a Legacy of Faith to her Granddaughter that helps the Granddaughter in her Faith. The story reminded me of the relationship I had the privilege to have with my own Granny (and I may have teared up a little bit while reading it). I highly recommend Grandmother's Tin Box by Judith M Ackerman! It's perfect for any story time! Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read this book. My review is also on Goodreads.

A sweet stories about the bond between a grandmother and her granddaughter and the memories and stories passed down through generations. Accompanied by fantastic illustrations, this is a cozy story for younger readers.

Grandmother's Tin Box is a wonderful story that follows a granddaughter's adventures at her grandparent's house, and the specialness of her grandmother's tin box. Inside of the box are various little items, and it becomes a tradition between the granddaughter and grandmother to enjoy the wonders inside of it.

This story did a spectacular job at demonstrating the close, loving relationship of a grandchild and their grandmother. It also introduces the important message that spending time with the people who love you is what makes memories special, and that their love will always stay with you.

My only wish is that the box held more magical stories. Although I loved the primary story involving the gold pin, it would've been nice to hear some about adventures involving the other objects, as the book's title primarily talks about the box.

Overall, I would 100% recommend this book to parents or grandparents who wish to share a special story and a message about family love with their loved child.
