Grand giveaway: Grandparent journals and Logitech webcam make connecting with grandchildren simple

Bluestreak Books (an imprint of Weldon Owen) sent me these great books AND is providing a prize pack for one of my lucky readers!

Win a perfect prize for connecting with grandchildren now... and later

Both of my grandmothers lived far away from me when I was a child. My maternal grandmother—the one the longest distance from me but closest to my heart—got in the habit as I got older of writing letters a few times a year, filling me in on the simple day-to-day of her senior years.

Gramma was always intentional in staying in touch with me, up until her arthritic hands could no longer write and my return letters—typed in large, bold-face font for easier reading—were no longer easy to read at all as her vision had failed. Had webcams been around prior to her passing, I'm pretty sure Gramma would have been keen on connecting via the high-tech wonder.

Those handwritten letters from my grandmother are among my most cherished possessions. I still have every one. And though I loved reading of her ordinary everyday doings, I now long for more. I wish she would have shared her family story, her personal longings, her dreams and wishes and deeper thoughts on the virtues and values she held close and hoped to instill in her progeny.

My desire for something tangible showcasing such sentiments from my grandma is what makes me so excited to share this giveaway. Bluestreak Books, an imprint of Weldon Owen, has provided a set of grandparent journals—Grandmother's Journal: Memories and Keepsakes For My Grandchild and Grandfather's Journal: Memories And Keepsakes For My Grandchild—to pass along to one lucky reader.

The beautiful keepsake memory books are designed to capture and preserve grandparents’ unique memories, from the days of their own childhood through the precious moments they spend with their grandchild.


Charming illustrations make these guided journals perfect gifts for today’s grandparents, wonderful keepsake books that they will want to share with each of their grandchildren. Beautifully designed and offering plenty of space for grandparents to tell their own life story, keep a living record of their experiences, and share their hopes and dreams for their grandchild, Grandmother’s Journal and Grandfather’s Journal are sure to be treasured gifts.

Each page includes thoughtful prompts to inspire and encourage any grandparent to record their most memorable and meaningful experiences, plus a family tree and plenty of space for memorabilia and photographs.

The journals are perfect for creating a strong connection with grandchildren, primarily later as a beloved keepsake that helps grandchildren better know you, your dreams, goals, values, memories, and more.

But that's not all in the prize pack from Bluestreak Books! Also included in the giveaway is the perfect way to connect with grandkids now: a Logitech webcam!
