Publisher's Weekly Review

All in the Family For children, grandmothers can be comforting and loving mythic figures. For adults, grandmothers may take on a mentor-like quality. Celebrating grandmothers old and young is Janet Lanese's More Grandmothers Are Like Snowflakes... No Two Are Alike: A Treasury of Wit, Wisdom, and Heartwarming Observations. In this second grandmother-inspired compilation, the author intersperses quotes from Mother Teresa ("A good feeling inside is worth more than a great beautician") and Alice Walker ("Our mothers and grandmothers, some of them; moving to music not yet written") along with her own bits of advice, such as "tell the truth no matter what the consequences" and "laugh at yourself and with yourself."
