2010 International Book Awards Recognizes Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too!
LOS ANGELES – Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! is an Award-Winner in the category of Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit. JPX Media announced the winners and finalists of THE 2010 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS (IBA) on May 18, 2010.
About the Book
Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! was written by “Grandma Sue” Susan Winter for children and grandparents alike. “Every day experiences turn into special moments for Grandpa Ron and Grandson Austin. The book captures some of those moments: Memories of compassion, character, patience and love,” Sue explains, “It hits on the message that we may seldom be given the opportunity to know the impact we make on another, even very young, individual. Live as though it will happen always and then cherish the memories.”
Grandma Sue divides her life between the LA area, Reno, NV and visiting grandchildren. Additional information about Grandma Sue and the book can be found on the mygrandmasue.wordpress.com web site. Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! is available on Amazon.com or through Ingrambook.com.
Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! is also an Award-Winning Finalist in the Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit category of the National Best Books 2009 Awards sponsored by USA Book News.
Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! will be on display in the New Title Showcase exhibit at BookExpo America, the country’s single largest book fair and annual gathering for the publishing industry, covering all genres of books, from May 25-27 in New York City.

The boys and girls love the book when I read it to them at daycare centers and libraries. They get right into it and tell their own stories about their grandparents. Grandpas, on the other hand, sometimes get teary-eyed and nod their heads and say “Oh, yes, I remember when……” Grandmas take one look at it and say “It’s darling. I must have a copy!”
It’s available at Amazon right now – get it today on Black Friday and take advantage of the special shipping deals Amazon is offering!

Today is a very special day for me! I received a gracious thank you note from Maria Shriver for giving her a copy of Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! at the 2009 Women’s Conference! If you follow my blog, you will see here that I think she is a very special person. I am so honored! She liked it!
Lana from Caught in the Moment sent me some pictures from the reading I did of Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! at the Long Beach Day Nursery back in June. This is my favorite one of all – It is Grandpa Ron and Austin – with Grandpa taking a picture, too! The children at Long Beach Day Nursery enjoyed the story and were very eager to share their own experiences with their grandparents or at least with static electricity – and the plastic slide! In fact, they voted to read it a second time!
Thanks for the photos, Lana!
