You don’t have to be a grandparent to enjoy The Bubbe Diaries, this brief but compelling compendium of wisdom on grandparenting. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss this fun listen from Paula Span, a professor of journalism and author who narrates her lively guide to grandparenting with warmth. She explores issues to help ease the transition into grandparenthood—the dilemma of what to be called as a grandparent, her battle to not be too overbearing, and new research into child safety. This delightful listen has all the hallmarks of an intimate conversation over a friend’s kitchen table. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
