My 3 year old granddaughter first introduced this book to me while I was at her house for a visit awaiting the birth of her new little sister. My first thought was, "well it's a board book so it'll be too simple for it to be good"... I read it the first night at bedtime, then the second night, then the third night and it continued on for the entire month I was there! LOL....sure we both knew it by heart very quickly and would read it out loud together, but that was half the fun. I'd do funny voices when I read it and sometimes changed a few of the words to kind of mix it up...But she enjoyed it so very much EVERY time. When I got back to the state where I live, I bought my own copy (just because I'm a kid at heart and I wanted to have something tangible of those beautiful reading memories with her.) I was further rewarded one day when she was having a hard time taking her afternoon nap. When my daughter called, I asked if I could talk to my little "Peanut"...I told her to go get her book and I would read it to her and she had to follow along and open all the little flaps. She did of course and she giggled the whole way through as if it were the first time she was hearing it. It was another priceless moment for this grandma...and she didn't have any trouble going down for her nap after that either. It's amazing what will capture a little ones attention. Sometimes we adults make things too complicated. As for me, I love to see things through the eyes of a child.

This is a typical Katz book, beautiful pictures, cute words in large print, and a lift the flap format. Your baby/infant will be captivated and reach for this book often.

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me, is because I expected Karen Katz to include a more youthful looking grandma. Times have changed...neither of my children's grandmothers nor those of any of our friends look this way anymore...I just expected the images to reflect that I guess.

What I like: It's nice to have a book all about Grandma. It has a lot of interesting things behind the flaps.

What I don't like: It's mostly about gifts the Grandma gives the girl. I don't want my daughter to greet her Grandma with "What did you bring me?"

My 14-month-old grandson adores this book. He brings it to me constantly for reading. I think the grandma is perfect (she looks like me.) He thinks it's about me and him, although he doesn't wear his hair in pigtails or wear nightgowns to bed like the little one in the book. He's excited to see what's in my suitcase for him whenever I show up. He pretends to eat the cookies the grandma bakes and pick the flowers in the book. And he always kisses me at the end. I'd love to see this in a version for boys before he starts talking and asks me for a red nightie!

Karen Katz books are awesome! My daughter has had several of them since birth, and is now two, and picks them off the bookshelf to read almost everynight. By lifting the flaps, she really feels she is participating in the story. She's pretty gentle, and rougher kids may pull/rip the flaps. Note - the flaps seem to be bigger and sturdier - and the stories better - in the books both written AND illustrated by Karen Katz. LOVE her books.

We actually bought this as part of a mother's day present for my daughter's Grandma, since they love to read together.

Karen Katz books are always delightful with their colorful pictures and easy to lift flaps. My daughter has several of her books, and they are her favorites. The wording and phrasing are simple and I'm sure that they will be helpful when my daughter starts to read on her own.

I bought this book because my son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter were coming to stay for a few weeks but was not sure it would be appropriate to read to a 6 month old. How wrong I was! This is our special book, which we read together during quiet time just before she goes to bed. My granddaughter seems to love it and is very attentive while I read and turn all the pages. Great choice!

I bought this book for my 12 month old who loves books with lil flaps to open. The only problem is, these flaps are of very thin cardboard and easily tear off. We will be putting away this book till she learns how to open them more carefully.

As I've mentioned in my other reviews my daughter is a big fan of the lift the flap books and loves most of Karen Katz's books. While she does like to read this one each day she does not get as excited as she does with What Does Baby Say, Where is Baby's Belly Button and Where is Mommy. Still a nice book to add to the collection of before bed stories.

Bright and cheerful, a gorgeous story about a little girl enjoying a visit from her Grandma. I brought this for my mother's birthday from her little grandaughter - I don't know who enjoys it more! I would have brought another book for my daughter's other grandmother but she has a different title. A selection of Nana, Gran, Grannie etc would be good.
