I spoke to Gramps Jeffrey recently about his recent book: I don’t want to turn 3. I read it – and remember when I was 3. SOOOO -
Grandpa Jeffrey explains why he wrote "I Don't Want to Turn 3" as follows:
Living this past year in isolation due to the pandemic, I was with my family. This gave me special time to watch and interact with the grandkids. Cool !!!
All 6 kids have completely different personalities. The one thing they have in common is the sense of curiosity and how excited they get when they accomplish something new. Watching them grow year to year and how they interact with each other is the basis for this book.
What goes through a toddler’s mind that parents are so desperate to understand? When does a toddler understand the difference between “me” and “us”? This book explores how a family finds out together.
As a baby boomer trying to understand how the world has evolved since I was 3 years old, is also part of this story. My parents did not have cell phones, Internet or cable TV. My parents’ definition of discipline is quite different than parents of today. Has today’s world made for a better place for children to grow up? I will let you answer that question as you weigh how you were treated growing up compared to how we treat our kids today.
So, I wrote this book to read to these grandkids. Their reaction has been invaluable. As you watch them understand Jordan’s discovery of right versus wrong, you can see the older kids have gone through the same dilemma. And the younger kids don’t quite yet understand the concept of sharing. This whole experience, for me, has been priceless.
There is a surprise ending that will pull at your heartstrings.
Gramps Jeffrey also wrote “The Secrets of Retailing or How to Beat Wal-Mart !!!! Can’t wait to read that one and that will be our next podcast !
His books can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and his website: grampsjeffrey.com.
His website is awesome - and he is an amazing guy.
