I always knew Grandmas had the best secrets and this book proves it. Can't wait for my mother in law to get her hands on this book and read it to my kids. She'll have a new nickname by the end I'm sure. Great gift for kids, GG's, Grandmas, Nanas, and Grambos!" - Angel Parker TV mom to Disney XD's LAB RATS "The book is adorable, my son loves it, and it would make an excellent gift for any grandparents to read to their grandkids. We had a great conversation about the role of grandparents in children's lives and how grandparents can make all the difference." -Chrissy Vakaros-Howe, author of the blog Full Metal Mommy "I was hooked! I read it to my daughter and we both cracked up during it." -Danielle Herzog, author of the blog Martinis and Minivans "Author Beth Navarro has a theory that the sweet, little, old woman that you know and love could possibly be living a secret life. In her first printed children's book, Grambo, Navarro takes the reader on a fun adventure with a boy named Ryan as he sets out to learn where his grandma really goes when she takes her quick and mysterious trips to "Texas," always returning home with a souvenir."
