Who says grandmothers can’t be contemporary, outgoing and stylish?

Terry Clark and Kathy Pokorney certainly think they can. In their new book, Grandma and Me, Clark and Pokorney showcase an updated version of the grandmotherly image of the past.

Based on Clark’s experiences, the story focuses on a grandmother and her granddaughter enjoying time together while taking part in active, youthful activities.

“Grandma doesn’t have gray hair, sit in her rocker and knit anymore,” says Pokorney. “She’s very different from the grandmother of the past. Her looks have changed, and she’s more active and healthy.”

Illustrated by Joshua B. Johnson and told in rhyme, the message of Grandma and Me is clear: to embrace the joys and wonders of being a grandparent no matter your age.

“Being a grandmother is one of life’s greatest rewards,” Pokorney says. “And having a healthy, active relationship with your grandchildren just makes it that much better.”
