The New York Times Bestseller now in paperback…
The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting
By legendary “60 Minutes” reporter
Lesley Stahl’s nationally bestselling and groundbreaking investigation of a cultural phenomenon: The New American Grandparenting.
BECOMING GRANDMA was a New York Times bestseller for 8 weeks, and reached #1 in the Boston Globe and San Francisco Chronicle. Cokie Roberts said, “Lesley Stahl brings the keen reporting we know from “60 Minutes” to the story of grandparenting. [She] provides useful information not only for grandparents and the children they cherish, but also for the wider society. This is a wonderfully fun read …” And Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, called BECOMING GRANDMA, “An energetic, informative and often touching book… No matter where readers fall in age or experience, this book should top their 2016 reading list of parenting titles,”
At a time when grandparents are more vital—and needed by young parents—more than ever, BECOMING GRANDMA offers a rich perspective on this changing life stage.
