My Grandma Is Wonderful

Summary:
The young narrator catalogs all of the great things shared with Grandma, whether it's a special treat (like ice cream) to having a solution for every problem (the pocketbook full of treasures).

Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The events are those toddlers and preschoolers can easily relate to. This will likely be a better learning-to-read book than a read-aloud story.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really.


Little Kid Reaction
S/He likes the story, but of the grandparent books in the collection, this isn't their number 1 selection.
Big Kid Reaction
The story, as a list of things a child likes to do with Grandma, is rather bland. It's a nice book, just not a rib-tickler.
Type of Book:
This is a picture book that celebrates a grandparent-child relationship.
Educational Themes:
What kids will take away from this story is the ways Grandmas show their love.

Age of child:
Started reading at 3 years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Skip it. You might consider borrowing it, but there are other books with similar themes to engage your child.
