Overview

Grandparents tell the best stories. They know things that nobody else knows such as family history and stories of when your own parents were kids. But the best story is the one about the day you were born. In Grandma Tells a Story, Grandma tells about how she and Grandpa longed to have a grandchild—someone she could read to, play with, bake cookies for, and love. From the day Grandma and Grandpa learned that you were coming, through the long wait and preparations, to the joyful day when you were born and Grandma got to hold her grandchild for the first time, the story unfolds with love and anticipation. Grandma Tells a Story is a sweet, charming tale and the perfect book for a grandparent to share with a grandchild.

Poignant, realistic illustrations in warm tones evoke a sense of comfort and home—the way grandmas always do.

A grandmother and grandfather eagerly anticipate the birth of their first grandchild.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What grandchild would not want to hear the story of how much he or she was wanted? This time the story is told through the voice of a doting grandmother. The couple longed for a grandchild and what they feel as they await the birth of this wonderful gift is simply told. Although the illustrations are well-done, they tend to be dark and do not reflect the excitement and joy of an anticipated birth. 2001, Whispering Coyote/Charlesbridge, $15.95. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer: Rita Karr
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A grandmother describes how lonely she and Grandpa are. They long for a grandchild "to fill our house with laughter, a child to bake cookies for on a rainy afternoon, a child to read stories to at bedtime." Once they learn that one is on the way, they shop for a teddy bear and other items. As soon as the baby is born, they travel to meet it and promise to play with it, to bake cookies, and to read to the "most wonderful grandchild in the whole world." This is the sort of story that children love to hear-how eagerly awaited and important they are. The double-page spreads are rendered in brightly colored mixed media that reinforce the story's action. The adults' expressions and activities clearly convey yearning and delight. In a nice touch, the grandchild's gender is not revealed. In contrast, Marion Dane Bauer's Grandmother's Song (S & S, 2000) poetically describes grandmother bearing a daughter who then bears a son. Its approach is contemplative and quiet while Grambling's story is more down-to-earth.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
