Book for grandmother to be?

Wondering if anyone could suggest a book for my mum, I'm pregnant with my first (first grandchild for both sets of parents) and my mum wants to be more involved but doesn't live locally. I've heard a lot of 'that's not how it was when I had babies' and going on about not understanding the current 'rules'. Any ideas?

That's a really good idea. I have no suggestions, but hope you find something.

Help! I'm a Granny, by Flic Everett

What are you reading? Get her a copy. Sorted!

I'm with Bertrandrussel - there's so much conflicting advice out there! If she reads what you're reading she's more likely to be in tune with your approach.

Thank you all, I'll have a look at the Flick Everett one.
I only have the book the midwife gave me (Ready steady baby - I'm in Scotland, not sure what you get in rest of UK)

There's loads of books for grannies where they fill out their life story for their grandchildren. I think it's a lovely idea! Amazon has loads.
