Lucky Me!by Lisa Papademetriou
Ted is embarrassed by his unusual grandmother but when she takes him to a ballgame and helps him catch a home run ball, he decides she's pretty cool after all.
Children's LiteraturePhotographs of real people are the hallmark of this series. Ted has a very modern and active grandmother. She likes to play ball, loves baseball games, laughs very loudly and even wears jeans. He thinks it might be nice to have a more demure grandmother who wears dresses, knits and spends time in a rocking chair. After an outing to a baseball game, Ted decides that maybe his grandmother is just fine the way she is. A good intergenerational story that blends phonics and whole language. A "Real Kids Reader" level 3, grade 1 to grade 3. 1999, Millbrook Press, $18.90 and $3.99. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot <%ISBN%> 0761320717
