Description

Grandma is much more than just the matriarch of the family. Whether she's keeping time during a race, building the perfect toy, turning the pages while you play your music, or just warming your hands, there are many reasons why a grandmother is great. Breaking traditional stereotypes, this book encourages children to images their grandmother in a host of contemporary situations: grandmas as sports enthusiasts, yoga instructors, and e-pals.
