    This is a delightful book and beautiful song (included on CD) about a child's view of the world thru her grandmothers eyes . It shows how a strong bond between a child and a nurturing adult can have such far reaching and lasting effects. The effects of this all important bond helps form the child's perspective, build self esteem, and adopt a positive attitude about life. What"s not to like?

    Wonderful Book!

    My daughter bought me this book as a gift from she and my granddaughter. When she saw the book and read the contents she exclaimed she knew she had to get it for me! When I read the story and listened to the CD, I just cried.
