This warmhearted picture book is a wonderful choice for Grandparents’ Day—which is celebrated on September 8th

"Squirrels to feed
Bluebirds too
A ride in Grandma’s red canoe"

There’s nothing like a visit at Grandma’s—sleeping in her big, comfy bed, eating yummy cinnamon bread, taking trips in the red canoe, listening to the rain, and watching fireflies at night. At Grandma’s house, there is always so much to do and share—from morning to night, it’s just the right place to be.

Rhyming text describes the joys of an overnight visit to Grandma's house.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A loving, deeply satisfying story." --Booklist, starred

Publishers Weekly
From morning ("Big bed/ Yellow sun/ Breakfast bread with cinnamon") to night ("Big bed/ Silver light/ Hug and kiss... to say good night"), a child's sleepover at grandma's house is sweetly rendered here. Firehammer's (The Flea's Sneeze) country hound-dog grandma may bake muffins and keep a cozy house, but she also wears sturdy overalls, can paddle a canoe and knows how to wield a hammer. The countryside is a harmony of muted, soft-edged colors, with rolling gumdrop hills and sunflowers as big as dinner plates, but the overall effect is tender rather than cloying. Greene's (Barnyard Song) three-line-per-page text offers haiku-like glimpses of various settings ("Wooden bridge/ White-cloud sky/ Cattails and a butterfly") as the genderless child and grandmother pick berries, have a picnic, watch fireflies and wear matching "bunny slippers on four feet." The fondness the two share as they potter about bathes both text and illustrations in "golden light," like the "noodle soup that tastes just right." While there's little plot, the various scenes add up to a day filled with enough wonders to make young readers long for a similar excursion of their own. Ages 2-5. (June) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A grandma and her grandchild spend a day together in this bright, warm, and cheerful picture book. Greene's bouncy verse ("Overalls/Floppy hat/Bowl of cream for Grandma's cat-") swings readers along through a variety of experiences: berry picking, enjoying a picnic lunch, gardening, firefly counting, and sharing a bedtime story. Firehammer's characters are sweet, floppy-eared dogs but their postures are human and familiar. Balancing soft tones of lilac, pink, mossy green, and buttery yellow against plenty of white space, the acrylic artwork is quiet and refreshing. Echoing the simplicity of the text, the illustrations include just enough interesting detail to feed a preschooler's imagination. Although there is nothing new about the book's intergenerational theme, the delightful combination of text and pictures gives it a fresh approach.-Liza Graybill, Worcester Public Library, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
