What’s your favorite memory of your grandparents? Picture the food, furniture, conversations, and rituals you shared growing up. How do those memories still resonate today?
The connections between grandparents and grandchildren can be magical; and Lauren Grabois Fischer’s new book, Life, is a touching exploration about family traditions and experiences shared from generation to generation. The book considers the big ideas about life from both a grandparents’ and a child’s perspective, and demonstrates how much we have in common no matter our age or experience.
Fischer, who who has Cuban-Jewish heritage, is one of a number of notable authors that Caribu is highlighting as part of Hispanic Heritage month. We took a book walk through Life with Fischer to learn more about the special relationships in her family and her multi-cultural background. Enjoy the video interview below, and then read Life with your loved ones in your next virtual playdate.
You can find Life in the ‘Hispanic Heritage Month’ and ‘New And Notable’ categories in the Caribu app. Sign up for Caribu so you can read it together with your loved ones in a an interactive video-call.
