About Us

Danita Mahler     

For nearly 20 years, I have dreamed of writing a children’s book and now that dream has come true!  The subject is near and dear to my heart of hearts – grandparenting!  I became a “Grammy” on a cold, December day in 2008 and life has never been the same!  No one loves you as unconditionally as a grandchild and I am blessed to have SIX grandkiddos now.  Many of the activities you’ll read about in our book are things we do with our own grandkids or friends do with the special kids in their lives.  I loved writing every word of this book and hope you enjoy reading it (hopefully with a grandkid in your lap!).  And I hope it inspires YOU to have a GRAND adventure!

For seven years, I lived my “dream job” …. Something many people never have the privilege of saying.  I had dreamed of being a Kindergarten teacher since my very first day of school.  I loved teaching children to LOVE learning!  Currently, I am taking some time off from the classroom, but still using my classroom management skills as “Chaos Coordinator” to my own four kiddos.  I’m involved in their school, girl scouts, and our church.  But, somehow I manage to find time for my mom and some of her crazy ideas – like, “let’s write a children’s book!”  When she told me the topic, I was sold on the idea.  My grandma died when I was only eight and I still think about her so often.  Having my own kids now, I realize the important role that grandparents play in the lives of children.
