About the Book

So much of children’s time is spent indoors, and they have little contact with nature. Author G. Bilodeau-Gramm seeks to change that. In Walking with Grandma, she inspires adults to get outside with their children and grandchildren to discover and explore. Through the eyes of Becca and her grandmother, this story shares a wide range of information and knowledge about the outdoors. It offers a look at the spiritual side of nature by promoting an understanding of the language of the heart. It discusses ancient teachings such as being thankful for the gifts nature provides, being aware of the messages from nature spirits, and recognizing the sacredness in all things. It includes wisdom from indigenous elders and even those in other realities. It encourages children to act with gratitude, respect, and compassion, and it demonstrates many ways to use the five senses to appreciate the world. With follow-up lessons and activities included, Walking with Grandma teaches children about life by using examples found in nature. It communicates the magic, wonder, and joy of the outdoors.
