When award-winning author, Grandma Janet Mary¿ puts pen to paper or, more likely, sits down at the computer, you know something wonderful will emerge. So it is with her latest creation, Grandma¿s Treasure Chest - the fourth book in the Grandma Janet Mary¿ series. In this poignant tale, a young girl is transported back in time as her grandmother takes her on a ¿tour¿ through the treasure chest that has always stood, unopen, in Grandma¿s bedroom. It¿s the perfect activity for a rainy afternoon. And as they go through the items in the chest, the girl discovers that the old trunk doesn¿t contain the jewels and gold coins of her fantasy but instead the gems that are the fruits of a long and loving relationship. The text is a gentle, lilting rhyme that contains lessons for children: ¿My Grandma says, `I¿m rich beyond compare. And all the money in the world can¿t buy what I will share.¿¿ As they go over past memories, they create new ones. And there is a special gift for the granddaughter, who concludes, ¿Some treasures in this life are found in Grandmas just like her.¿ A lovely story, enhanced by Craig Pennington's lovely illustrations. Those who enjoyed this story might also enjoy another children's picture book: Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee: A Bee's Bit of Wisdom. In it, another young girl has a similar grandmotherly neighbor who gives her a task that the girl finds to be a real challenge. But with the help of her new friend, Ruby Lee, she is encouraged to call on her inner resources to achieve and succeed.
