School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-With charming illustrations and a singsong rhyming text, this flipbook appeals on many levels. "Bubbe," "savta," "nana"-these are all names Jewish children call their grandmothers. Each richly colored spread depicts a doting grandma engaged in an activity that best displays her own special loving ways. Chimpanzee nana bakes a challah and then goes outside to play catch; bow-wowing bubbe rides a moped while delivering treats for Purim; and grandmother bunny makes seder "each year for 23 cousins all equally dear." Zebra "zaydes," snail "sabas," and porcupine "papas" conduct themselves similarly on the flipside. Utilizing a dense palette of purples, reds, blues, and greens, the whimsical illustrations are full of expressive characters exuding lots of love. Especially appealing is the center spread, where a human grandma and granddaughter float lazily along a river reflecting a grandpa and grandson (thus the flip), while the riverbank is lined with cloudlike reflections of the animals seen earlier in the text. Although this book is geared toward a Jewish audience, the warm and loving portrayal of the special relationship between grandparents and their beloved grandchildren shines through on every page, making this a lovely choice for Grandparents Day in any community.-Teri Markson, Stephen S.
