“Remember the fun things in life,” Maliszewski says to her readers. “Do not dwell on the negatives, and cherish every moment you have with your loved ones.”

When author Julia Maliszewski’s children were small, they loved to look inside Grandma Rose’s purse where they always found something fun. In her new children’s book, “Grandmas Got The Goodies” (published by Trafford Publishing), Maliszewski shares some of the silliest items that ever came out of Grandma Rose’s purse.

No one ever knows just what quirky item Grandma Rose will pull out of her purse, least of all her loving granddaughter, the narrator of the story. Known for the delicious goodies she always carries around with her, Grandma Rose keeps an eclectic collection of other strange items in her purse, just in case she ever needs them when she travels.

Readers tag along with Grandma Rose as she delights everyone she meets with the wonderful items she pulls out of her purse. When airport security finds boysenberry jam in her purse, Grandma Rose passes out snacks to everyone, and when she finally gets to the plane, Grandma Rose passes out pizza burgers to hungry flyers.

Vividly illustrated, “Grandmas Got The Goodies” recounts some of the special memories Maliszewski’s daughters created with their grandmother. Through her book, Maliszewski hopes to encourage readers to treasure the time they spend with their grandparents and other loved ones.

“Remember the fun things in life,” Maliszewski says to her readers. “Do not dwell on the negatives, and cherish every moment you have with your loved ones.”
