Heritage Books: North Carolina Author Honors Grandmothers

Heritage Books: North Carolina Author Honors Grandmothers

Grandmothers are placed into our lives for special reasons. Some are there to provide guidance while others are there to stand in as parents, yet most are there to provide us with great Southern cooking. More than anything, Grandmothers are pillars in our adolescent years and also as adults.  Grandmothers are the epitome of leadership and serve as a detailed lesson guide for our life. One author and educational professional that shares just how important Grandmothers are is Ms. Tara Hill-Starks.

Tara Hill-Starks is a passionate learner and author. Besides being one who goes above and beyond to know more, Ms. Hill-Starks enjoy providing her lessons and knowledge to children through didactic learning. She has taught in postsecondary and also higher education and understands how one can learn without being focused on the ideal of learning. This North Carolina native and member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. values the things that life has taught her, but more than ever she is thankful for her Grandmother’s teachings as a young child and also the wisdom shared by her pastor as an adult. These motivational factors encouraged Ms. Hill-Starks to create her latest work, Grandma, I Got This!

All Black Southern Belles have or had a grandmother in their lives that have taught them valuable life lessons and Grandma, I Got This! is a great reminder of these teachings. All ages can expect to have flashbacks, gain great lessons, and thankfulness from this book created by Ms. Tara Hill-Starks.

Grandma, I Got This! Synopsis

In the text, the main character, JJ, is a young, active, and energetic boy who loves to swim and play outside. Besides his personal hobbies, JJ also loves his Grandmother dearly. Like many Grandmothers, JJ hears his Grandmother repeat often certain sayings and phrases that he acts on because of what was instilled and taught by his Grandmother. He later begins to put these actions, that his Grandmother always suggested, into his everyday life. He shares, counts his blessings, tells the truth and much more. However, one day these actions began to have more value than ever before when JJ is faced with a difficult scenario. 

Overall, Grandma, I Got This!, which is publish by Tellwell Talent, is a book for all ages and genders and have received great reviews since being published in November of 2020. Some reviews state that: 

“It’s a beautiful story of the shaping of a young man’s life by his grandmother. TTara writes with clarity and joy. This is a book everyone should have!” – Lynne Hinton 

“A perfect platform to teach kids lessons that they need throughout life. And her inspiration for writing the book is remarkable! Loved It!!!” – Clarissa Carl

Grandmothers are special in our lives and this book explains and helps us remember just that. So if you are in need of a quick reminder of how great you are (Grandmother), or need some suggestions on lessons to teach early on then this book by Ms. Tara Hill Starks is one that we recommend.
