Grandma is much more than just the matriarch of the family. Whether she's keeping time during a race, building the perfect toy, turning the pages while you play your music, or just warming your hands, there are many reasons why a grandmother is great. Breaking traditional stereotypes, this book encourages children to images their grandmother in a host of contemporary situations: grandmas as sports enthusiasts, yoga instructors, and e-pals.
Harriet Ziefert often writes about grandparents, as it evokes both her fond memories of her own grandparents and her present experience as a grandmother of four.
Amanda Haley holds a B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She lives in Ohio with her husband and their golden retriever, Sally. "--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition."
