Still More Stories from Grandma's Attic and Treasure from Grandma's Attic

I'm going to keep this review very brief, but you can see a sneak peek (first chapters) of both Still More Stories from Grandma's Attic and Treasures from Grandma's Attic, here. Still More and Treasures, etc. are the third and fourth books in the Grandma's Attic series, books that read a lot like Little House on the Prairie, about mischief that the author's grandmother got into when she was a young girl, around 100 years ago. They're funny, clean and ultimately each story contains a positive message.

I read the first two books in this series, a few months ago, and didn't hesitate to snatch up copies to review, when they were offered up. Great for reading to children old enough to sit still for a short (chapter) story or for readers entering chapter-book territory, I can't recommend the series enough. They have a Christian bent; some books talk about God and prayer more than others, and they do so more in a teaching way (learning a lesson about being obedient, for example) than a preaching way. Excellent books, highly recommended!

  1. Oh! These do look really good, and I did get a Little House vibe from the covers. I bet these books are just timeless, and I would love to get my hands on them! Great review, and great find here today!

  2. I have to say, in agreement I think, that every once in a while it's a great relief to read a clean and positive book! LOL

  3. I really liked reading Little House on the Prairie growing up, so I probably would have loved these books too. Great post and happy Wednesday!

    Also, I’m a new follower— wonderful blog! Stop by my blog and follow me too? :)

  4. I have a vague recollection of these books from my childhood. I wonder if I'd remember the individual stories too. :)

  5. Zibilee,

    They are definitely timeless. I have absolutely loved reading this series.


    Yes, it's truly a breath of fresh air to read something clean with a positive message. I feel awfully lucky to have had the opportunity to review the Grandma's Attic books.


    I was a Litttle House addict, myself, so I really love the similarities to the LIttle House series (mischievous children, positive message, clean stories).

    Thanks for following my blog! Sure, I'll drop by and follow in return. :)


    You had such a cool childhood. LOL I'd never heard of these stories till they were offered for review (the first two -- last year, I think), even though they've been around for a long time. Sounds like you're due for a reread to check your memory!
