The pages are thick and the print is high quality. My grandmother loved it and she had no problems reading it because the font is a decent size, but doesn't scream "Hello, I bought this for you because I think you're blind". A great x-mas gift for sure. It was a hit. ... Read full review

About the author (1983)

Family histories can be valuable for genealogy and personal recollection and Judith Levy has contributed some books that encourage people to write such histories. Judith Levy, the eighth of ten children, was born to synagogue singer Alter Privin and his wife Dina, in Brooklyn, N.Y. It was difficult to get attention in such a large family, so as a result, Levy became very close to her maternal grandmother, Chana Shultz. Levy married a handbag manufacturer, Herb Levy, raised three daughters, Marcy, Carole, and Cathy, and pursued a career singing with the Peter Duchin Orchestra. However, she had fond memories of her grandmother and that made her decide to take a course in family history at Florida Atlantic University. Because she enjoyed writing poems, she created a book that included some opening passage poems in a book and provided additional space for grandmothers to write about their lives and cherished memories. Initially, she marketed the book herself, but it was ultimately published by Stewart, Tabori, and Chang. Grandmother Remembers became the motivation for grandmothers in many countries to set down their memories in print. Later, Ms. Levy heard from many people who requested a similar book for grandfathers. In response, Levy created Grandfather Remembers. Although suffering from sever osteoarthritis, Ms. Levy has managed to forge a successful writing career.

Author Judith Levy and artist Judy Pelikan began their successful collaboration in 1983 with Grandmother Remembers: A Written Heirloom for My Grandchild, which sold over two million copies and was number two on the New York Times best-seller list. Since then, they have had many best-selling books, including Grandfather Remembers (1986), Mom Remembers (1990), and Dad Remembers (1993). A grandmother of four, Judith lives in Boca Raton, Fla. Her youngest grandchild is adopted. Judy lives in Sugar Hill, N.H.
