Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—With her "nighty in [her] nighty trunk," a little elephant makes her way to her grandmother's house for sleepover fun. The story is told in bouncy rhythmic lines that almost beg to be sung, with the refrain, "Oh. We love each other so" woven throughout. The child and her grandmother play silly games, tell one another stories, and take absolute delight in each other's antics. Their exuberantly shared enjoyment and love are perfectly reflected in the slightly muted full-color ink, watercolor, and acrylic illustrations. The stylized artwork is reminiscent of comic books from the 1920s and '30s with hints of zaniness and joie de vivre contained within clean lines and plenty of white space. This onomatopoeic paean to a grandmother and granddaughter's mutual love will delight storytime crowds, and real-life grandparents looking for a snuggly one-on-one read will welcome it.—Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The deliciousness of a grandma-grandchild sleepover is captured in a book that’s as silly as it is sweet. Granddaughter is packing her trunk (well, she is a little elephant) as she gets ready to leave her high-rise apartment for Gramma’s cozy cottage. Joosse’s prose has an effortless feel throughout, in this case as it captures Granddaughter’s anticipation: “Well, I’m going there this minute / to the Gramma who is in it / and the Doozie who is barking / and I’m bouncing bouncing bouncing.” The refrain, “Oh. We love each other so,” bounces, too, across the spreads as the pair does fun things like paint, have tea, and dance. Best of all is when Gramma, in her little-girl voice, demands a story. And so one is told: “Once upon a time there was a cake that nobody ate. And then they did. The End.” As delightful as the text is, the ink, acrylic, and watercolor artwork, in candy colors, takes the story to another level. Jutte, an award-winning Dutch illustrator, gives his pictures a bit of Babar and a tinge of Tintin, yet they are uniquely their own. Gramma and Granddaughter, Joosse and Jutte. Fabulous pairings all. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

When do adults get to act like children and really don't care? When we become grandparents. There is no greater joy than playing with grandchildren. You can be silly, act foolish, do things you never thought you would be caught doing, but grandchildren will love you unconditionally! Imagination playing is wonderful, you can be anything you ever wanted to be, and pretend to go anywhere you ever wanted to go without costing a cent and the fun never ends. Have a fancy tea party for stuffed animals, build a castle, become a knight is shining armor or a zoo keeper. The only limit is your imagination. A Sleepover At Grandma's House is just the beginning of the story.

I checked this book out of the library for my daughter when she just turned 2. She loved it. She is almost 3 now and still loves this book. We checked it out again recently and she remembers lines from the story. Silly milly silly milly, let's put paper over the door and run through... Ta DA! She loves that line :) I'm going to buy this book for her birthday so she can read this whenever she wants.

I read this book to my almost two-year-old granddaughter before the birth of her sister. She kept requesting that it be read to her. The text is sweet and the illustrations charming.
