This charming book about the special magical love that a grandmother has for her special charges will delight the reader!
on August 2, 2010
A magical grandmother, all dressed in lavender clothes sprinkled with a touch of green, is flying backwards, gently floating through the air. Her amazing broad brimmed hat is all set to hold her gray cat who has a set of white socks for paws. It even has a handy seatbelt to keep her kitty from blowing away in the breeze. Grandmothers are handy at thinking of things like that. She also keeps a close eye out on her grandchildren . . . "If we're in trouble / she comes right away / Got stuck in the mud / and couldn't play / She said her magic works well on dirt . . . / But left her wand in another shirt." The clothesline was full, lined from end to end with Mary Poppinish clothes with that magical wand tucked into a pocket.
She pulled out her knitting and a special chair that she could sit on to do some thinking. Kitty was extra busy lying on her back winding herself up in the yard from a green ball of yarn. She had to do some thinking to find a way to get the three mischievous grandchildren out of the mud. "The mud pies we mad counted 23 / And from the mud we were finally free." Two boys and a girl were quickly hung out to dry on the line. Grandmothers can be very handy, but there is one special thing that they are especially known for. Can you guess what the three youngsters knew for sure about their special grandmother?
This charming book about the special magical love that a grandmother has for her special charges will delight the reader. This book, which is dedicated to Danny, Sasha, and Carl, are probably the little mischief makers portrayed in the pages of this book. The illustrations aptly catch the love that grandmothers have for their grandchildren, a love that is returned. This story in rhyme is a personal tribute, but one that any who has experience the magic of a similar relationship will be able to relate to it. This spicy, adorable tribute would make a nice gift for your special grandmother on Grandmother's Day
