All About My Grandmother Project: Itsy Bitsy Nimbus Book Club

**ENTER TO WIN A FREE BOOK!!**

The book My Two Grandmothers, published by Nimbus Publishing, tells the tale of two grandmas who are unique from each other in almost every way. One grandmother is Acadian, the other is Scottish; their traditions are different, their grandparenting style is different, even the words they use to describe things are different. One thing about them is exactly the same, however, and that is the love for their grandchildren.

Reading this book will naturally lead to conversations about your child's grandmother - noticing similarities with one of the grandmothers in the book, or noticing a big difference between them. Use these discussions to set up the book extension activity (and free printable you can download!) that we've created for My Two Grandmothers.

Of course we get to our share of holiday parades, Christmas tree lightings, and Santa visits...but, that being said, I've been trying to focus on the traditions that are most important to our family and connect us to the community we choose to live our lives in, and so I've rounded up five of our favourite Maritime family traditions.

This post is part of a #MaritimeChristmas blog hop with some other local family bloggers.
