Our Review:

As you can see, our kiddo falls out of the recommended age group for this book, but since she loves to read, pretty much anything she gets her hands on, I knew that she would enjoy this book as well.  

If your child is on the younger end of the scale, this would be a good read together book with their Grandma (or Mom, Dad, etc). Our kiddo loved the book, besides telling me that she does, the fact that she has now read it just about every night before bed, lets us know that she really does.  We loved the story line.  Easy for younger kids to understand and they can put themselves in the story and relate to it because these are probably activities that they have done themselves.  

I think that the highlight of receiving this book for me, was on Christmas morning.  My husband's mother came over and the kiddo told her that she had something to read to her, with a "this is what you and I do when I come to visit."  She then proceeded to read the story to her Grandma, who was just about in tears when she was done.  Was a very touching moment between the two of them. 

The story line is fun and heartwarming.  

Then, you need to check out the illustrations.  They are colorful, expressive and jump right off the page. They show the love between the Grandma and the child as well as all the fun things that they do together.  Of course, at the end, though they have had a ton of fun, it is nice to go back home to Mom. 

In closing, we truly do believe that you would love this book.  This would be a perfect present to have your child give to that special Grandma in their lives.  

Happy reading!!!
