Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 5^-8. "Why do you have your clothes inside-out?" asks Rosie, and so begins a delightful story that twists and turns as Grandma explains. Inside-out clothes remind Grandma of her son, Rosie's father, who never dressed carefully; and her son reminds Grandma of her late husband, Reuben. Thinking of Reuben's red hair brings to mind a shiny new penny, and from there it's a short leap to Hanukkah gelt. . . Somehow, Grandma does bring the story full circle, so that inside-out clothes result in reminding Grandma to buy lots of oil for frying her delicious potato pancakes for the holiday party. Despite the story's distinctive Jewish parameters, kids of many ethnic persuasions may recognize a grandmother who likes to tell stories as well as enjoy the warmth that a family celebration can engender. The gouache-and-pencil artwork is chock-full of memories and decorated with festive borders. Bubbemeis means grandmother story in Yiddish, and this is a bubbemeis, par excellence. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
The book begins with a girl asking her grandmother why she is wearing her clothes inside out. The response is that it helps her remember to buy the oil to fry the potato latkes for Hanukkah. This starts a series of reminiscences where Grandma remembers many of the joys in her life. They are simple things, like how the granddaughter's hair is the same color as her deceased grandfather and the color of pennies in a jar. It is about family, and the memories that are generated. It ends with the girl's father arriving and telling his mother that her clothes are inside out. It is a wonderful story about connections between people.

It's a great book!!! Last night I wore my tee and sweatshirt inside out, while madly making a million latkes!! Had one of my daughters read the story, which I was cooking! Everyone loved that bubbe looked so crazy! Fun book.
