Overview

Mrs. Fennessey's second-grade class is planning a big celebration for Grandparents Day, and everyone's really excited about it- everyone except for Calliope James. Her best friends, Howie and Pa Lia, are bringing their grandmas. Even Stinky Stern's grandpa is coming. But Calliope's grandparents are no longer alive. How can she celebrate Grandparents Day without a grandparent?

In the second book of the Jackson Friends series, Michelle Edwards offers an ingenious solution to this emotional dilemma and provides an honest and insightful look at the challenges faced by children every day.

Calliope does not have a grandmother or grandfather to bring to school on Grandparent's Day, but she finds a special way to participate anyway.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Grandparents Day might be fun for most, but Calliope James faced it with dread. She had no grandparents to bring. What kind of day would it be for her? Her best friends offered to share theirs with her, and her mother offered to come to school, but nothing would make her feel good about being odd and deprived. This was until she came up with the weirdest idea. And it worked. Experience the turnaround for this appealing kid, and enjoy the author-illustrator's droll black-and-white pictures in this multi-cultural story that makes lemonade out of lemons. 2001, Harcourt,
— Judy Chernak
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-Calliope James scrunches down in her seat when her teacher invites the second graders to bring their grandparents to school to celebrate Grandparents Day. Angry and wishing that she had a grandparent, the child hits on an idea that allows her to introduce her class to her late grandma, Flory Sophia Turnipseed. Young readers in the same predicament can learn from her creative solution. Edwards uses a light touch in portraying Calliope as a sensitive but realistic youngster just trying to fit in. Abundant black-and-white, full-page and spot illustrations, both realistic and fanciful, and done in pen and ink, ink wash, and white paint, make this beginning chapter book an excellent choice for newly independent readers.-Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
