Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Known for her colorful picture books about community activism (Uncle Willie and the Soup Kitchen) DiSalvo-Ryan addresses the "super-storing" of America in her latest offering. Lucy loves spending time at her Grandpa's corner grocery, where neighbors depend on the personal service. But when construction begins on a giant supermarket around the corner, Lucy and Grandpa fear that Grandpa's shop will be put out of business and he'll have to move away. Before she'll let that happen, Lucy uses her can-do spirit to rally the community on Grandpa's behalf andAat least for nowAkeep his store afloat. DiSalvo-Ryan again displays her knack for heartening tales that blend family love and neighborhood spirit. Lucy's adoration for Grandpa is palpable, and the community's support is rousing, never pat. Sprightly watercolors depict a vibrant cast of ordinary characters in a small-town setting. Her busy spreads emphasize people and the ways they interactAand the strength they find as they take pride in where they live. Ages 5-up. (Apr.)

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Lucy's grandfather owns the local grocery store, and the child is worried that he will be forced to sell and move away from her once a new supermarket opens. Filled with love and determination, she is able to pull the neighborhood together and save her Grandpa's store. DiSalvo-Ryan illustrates how anger at a situation can be turned into something positive and emphasizes the importance of community in our lives. Children will empathize with Lucy and realize that they are not always powerless, that they can make a difference. The soft, colorful illustrations are large, often taking up almost the entire two-page spread. The faces of the people reflect the feelings described in the text. The map on the end pages is an added bonus, paving the way for similar classroom projects. This title would fit well into a social studies lesson on communities.

Format: Hardcover
This book is REALLY about the former Lindsey's Grocery Store, which has been there almost FOREVER, or so it seems! I am in my late 60's and it was well established when I was a kid! Generations have trusted this small (by our current standards) local store, and I loved visiting Dick Lindsey when I was little - he was always so nice to all the kids! And their sandwiches were beyond reproach! It's still there, but I haven't seen the store, under new management, in 20 years. For those who want to see a REAL historical store, go there - it's at 7th and Station Avenues in Haddon Heights, New Jersey.

This book as better than I expected. The text and illustrations are very well done. It gives are real atmosphere and discusses social and economic issues in an accessible way. The conclusion is a bit unrealistically rosy but it does help explain local social activism to childdren.
