Arleta Richardson’s beloved series, Grandma’s Attic, returns with Treasures from Grandma's Attic, the fourth in the refreshed classic collection for girls 8 to 12.

Children love the captivating storytelling that recounts childhood memories of mischief and joy. Ideal for home, school, or church libraries, or to give as a gift certain to be treasured.
My take on this book:
In this book Mabel and her best friend Sarah Jane are growing up, in the first story they are thirteen and they are dreading that cousin Agatha is coming for a Thanksgiving visit.When Mabel's family is snowed in she realizes that she actually likes cousin Agatha. The difference that I noticed in this book is the fact that it is more like Mabel is reminiscing about her past rather than telling the story to her grand -daughter. There is still plenty of trouble to be had by best friends Sarah Jane and Mabel even though they are growing up. I love the fact that there are positive christian lessons woven into each story, although the stories never come off as preachy. Another great thing about this series of books is the fact that each chapter is a stand alone story making it easy to pick up and put down. Perfect for bedtime reading. I loved this entire series and would easily recommend them to anyone young and old alike.
