When Rhondy's grandmother is sad after learning that they must find another place to live, Rhondy reminds her that they will still have what is most important--each other.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rhondy finally succeeds in cheering up her distraught grandmother, when she reminds her that no matter what happens, she is still Grandmama's joy. Ages 4-8. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Gwendolyn Bradley
In this moving story, Rhondy is upset one fine day by her grandmama's mysterious sadness. Rhondy tries hard to cheer her up by putting on a show, asking a neighbor to give her a call, and bringing her a pebble from the yard. At the last gift, Grandmama breaks down and cries, explaining to Rhondy that the two of them will have to leave their yard and house since Grandmama can no longer afford the rent. Rhondy cheers her grandmother by reminding her of the most important thing-they are other's joy. Thus the story achieves an emotionally satisfying ending without offering a false solution to the family's economic problem. Carole Byard's black-and-white drawings complement the story. A Coretta Scott King Honor Book and a NCSS Notable Children's Trade Book in the field of social studies, this book would be a strong addition to a unit on families or social studies. 1999 (orig.
