Grandma, Tell Me About the Good Old Days
By: Dr. Anna Louise Scott
About the Book
Change is inevitable! The outcome of change, however, depends on how it is received and acted upon by each person. In today's culture of instant gratification and age of technology, each day can be a new challenge. Growing up in the Thirties, Dr. Anna Louise Scott lived when work was valued, self-reliance was necessary, and honesty, morality, and religion were a way of life. People refer to this generation as the greatest, but Dr. Scott likes to call it "The Good Old Days."
Dr. Scott has observed today's children and has very grave concerns about their culture compared to prior generations. She wondered what it was like in today's average home. To find out, she visited her grandchildren. Amazed by what was occurring, Dr. Scott decided to educate her grandchildren about what it was like back in the Good Old Days. Though many stories were shared, inquisitive questions were asked with humorous answers. The children were amazed to learn what it was like "back then" and wondered how anyone survived. At the end of her tale, Dr. Scott will share the one event in her life that changed everything.
