What did Grandma and Grandpa Read



Grandparents Day 

We like for grandparents to share what they read when they were in Middle and High school.  It is always fun to see the responses from grandparents.  We put the books with the grandparent recommendations on display.  Many times the books are classics.  Occasionally we will buy a fresh copy, this makes the book appealing to students.  

Here are some grandparents comments from this year and past years:

"I do not know if you will be able to come up with one or any of these books…they really go back a long time.  One favorite was Roald Dahl’s Danny, the Champion of the World. " Jack Morrison
(Grandfather to Harry, Truman, and Bess Zumwalt)
Thank you Hannah, this is a very nice idea.  Wanda Newby (Grandmother of Joshua Sizemore)
 Grandfather – Gentry Newby - Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn 
Grandmother – Wanda Newby – Charles Dickens - A Tale of Two Cities

Well, that's a hard question but I think the answer is "To Kill A Mockingbird". I read a lot in those days as my father always gave me a book of the month as a Christmas present!

Pops liked "The Hardy Boys "books by Franklin W. Dixon. Gran loved reading "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White. Grandparent's of Jackson Watson.
