"Dancing with Daddy took me right back to my grandmother's house! This book is a delightful way to communicate the importance of knowing who you are and where you came from.... What a great reminder of how important grandparents are in sharing family history."

Chapter OneThere are two houses I call home. One is where my mom lives, and the other is Nana's house.
I love going over to Nana's house.
I never get bored at Nana's house. There's cartoons on every station; there's indoor basketball, and there are train, planes and cars everywhere!
There's always something to do at Nana's house.
My favorite, though, is playing a game of one-on-one with Nana.
"Nana, why is your house so much more fun than my house? How did you get all these toys? Have you always had these toys? Did Mommy play with these toys when she was a little girl?" I asked as he played basketball in the hallway.
"No, Honey, I haven't always had these toys, but when you came along, I knew that you were going to need these toys when you visited me," replied Nana as she ducked to miss the jump shot coming directly at her.
