Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rae Valabek
The Bag I'm Taking to Grandma's uses pictures and repetitive phrases to describe how a young boy packs a bag to visit his grandmother. This situation is one that young children can relate to. It vividly points out the difference between a parent's view of what is necessary and a child's view. The watercolor illustrations are a delight. The rebuses will increase the fun for beginning readers.

PreS-Gr 1A familiar story of differing viewpoints between mother and child is presented in charmingly simple cumulative verse and rebuses. A young boy is packing for a trip to visit his grandmother. He fills a shopping bag with his mitt, cars, space ship, wooden animals, his favorite stuffed rabbit, his pillow, a book, a flashlight. But then along comes mom with ideas of her own! Each object that he decides to take is introduced with a full-page illustration done in watercolor and colored pencil. Then, as it is added to the items ``that I'll pack in the bag I'm taking to Grandma's,'' the book takes a rebus format, so beginning readers will soon be able to ``tell'' the story as it goes along. Children will identify with the boy, as parents will relate to the mother. This is a real winner that will be great fun for story times, as well as for one-on-one sharing.Beth Irish, Orange Public Library, CA
