Jessica’s two daughters, Janiece and Janelle, never met their grandmother. She had passed away when their mother and Aunt Jenny were just teenagers. Could Jessica’s old toys from the past take Janiece and Janelle back in time to meet their grandmother?

Janelle and Janiece were such sweet girls. I enjoyed seeing how they reacted to their unexpected time travel and how they adapted to life before computers, smartphones, or any of the other conveniences of our modern age. There was so much fodder here for funny misunderstandings or for either of these characters to be mystified by 1980s technology like VCRs. I’d sure be interested in reading a sequel in which this stuff is explored if the author is ever interested in writing it.

This story would have benefited from having more details included in it. For example, the narrator never really explained how Janiece and Janelle managed to accidentally travel back into time. They bumped their heads together, but nothing else was mentioned about how a small accident could have had such a huge consequences. Their conversations with their grandmother about life in the 1980s was similarly brushed over. I saw so much potential in scenes like these. If only the narrator had described exactly what happened in them.

One of the things I enjoyed the most about it had to do with how many different age groups it could appeal to. There were sections of it that would be perfect for children who are just learning how to read chapter books, and there were other sections that I thought would appeal to readers several years older than that. This seems like something that would be a great choice for a family, daycare, or other group of listeners that has both younger and older elementary students in it.

Meeting Grandmom should be read by anyone who has ever wondered what their parents’ childhoods were really like.
