    Book Review

Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

"I Remember When" by Dawn Wynne and Illustrated by Andrea Vitali is a book that will take you on a journey back down memory lane as you read this to your grandchild. It is the story of two children whose inquiring minds want to know what it was like when their grandmother was growing up. As she takes them on a journey back to her days the children learn about the different things that were quite popular back them. No cell phones or computers, no dryers, or washers. And no CD players or cable TV.

This book was such a delight to read for me that I feel all grandmothers will also enjoy reading it to their grandchildren, as the grandchildren sit next to them and marvel at how things are so different today. This is also a hands on learning book that will help the children to see just what it was like to dial a rotary phone instead of punching numbers. How about a record player, where they can turn the record, or see what it was like to scrub clothes on a washboard. This and other activities help your grandchild learn that the things so easy to use today were just not invented back when you were young. I like the book because of the cardboard feel to it instead of normal paper. This will make for a longer lasting book. The colors are bright and cheery with great illustrations that will delight the child. I would recommend this book for ages 3-6. Would make a great gift for the child’s library.
