As all good grannies know, the most precious gift they can offer their grandchildren is time…

In this new edition of The Good Granny Guide you will find a whole range of practical advice to help you make the most of the time you spend with your grandchildren, as babies, as toddlers, and through the primary school years.

Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall, a loving and closely involved grandmother of four children, has gathered first-hand tips from other grandparents and their families in many different situations. The result is a wonderfully insightful handbook – a vast resource of wisdom, history and humour – covering everything from childcare troubleshooting to what NOT to say to the daughter-in-law.

“Granny Jane gets the golden rules right. She is absolutely spot on... ”
<em>The Times</em>
“Tips on how to spoil the grandkids without ruining your relationship with their Mum and Dad”
<em>Women's Own</em>
“Even perfect grandmas could pick up a trick or two from this witty compilation of first-hand advice.”
<em>Mail on Sunday</em>
