PreS-Gr 2Three slice-of-life stories that are full of warmth and love. In the first, Miami-Nanny visits her grandchildren, Sophie and Joe, and brings each family member a perfect present that has a history. Next, Joe is bored when visiting Miami-Nanny until she tells him about a true adventure involving his brave grandfather. In the last selection, Sophie visits her great aunt, Itza-Neni, who shares a story about a girl named Bella and her life in the old country; Sophie is amazed to find out that Bella is her Miami-Nanny and that Bella's baby sister is Itza-Neni. As refreshing as an egg cream on a warm summer day, these tales capture a modern Jewish family full of fond memories. The detailed watercolor illustrations add to the nostalgic mood. This picture book might inspire young families to share their own intergenerational stories.Micki S. Nevett, Westmere Elementary School, Albany, NY
