Ms. Eugeena’s Favorite Things: Books for My Grandbaby


It’s the day before Thanksgiving. I decided to take a little break and post a blog. I’m really starting to like this new hobby.

Anyhow, buying online has become a special activity in my household. Learning how to use a computer and then learning how to shop on the Internet have changed the quality of my life. I know that some of the things I want to buy for my folks can’t easily be found in stores. I’m not sure I have what it takes to tackle those crowds on Black Friday, but I most certainly will be doing some Cyber Monday shopping.

The first ones on my list are my grandbabies, namely the last two that belong to Leesa. The older ones are easy to shop for, but Leesa’s two children need more since they are a toddler and preschooler.

I’ve been impressed with some children’s books that I am certain little Kisha will love having read to her. For example, I must buy Nicole M. Brown’s Adventures of Nurse Nicole books: N is for Nurses and Wash Your Hands.  I want that little girl to be health-conscious early in life given my diabetes and her grandfather’s early demise. She’s smart as a whip, so I think the Nurse Nicole books will give her information to grow on.

Little Miss Kisha loves church and she loves going with me, so I found a book that will reinforce some biblical principles I’d love for her live by: Graceful Gabby Finds Love in Blue by Crystal Morgan-Marable. I just love the story and illustrations.

I found these other books on the blog Afro Puffs & Ponytails: Ansaba Gavor’s Children are Like Cupcakes and Nicole L. Updegraff’s I Love my Cotton Candy Hair. And since she loves my cooking so much I think I’ll buy her Are There French Fries in Heaven by Kay Gibbie.

It is my heart’s desire that Kisha and all of the grands develop a love for reading and books early on. I also love the idea of giving books that will allow us to spend quality time together: hugged up and reading.

Happy Thanksgiving and Take Care Now!

Ms. Eugeena
