This book is a touching story about Joey's grandma and her Italian traditions. For me, Joey's grandma, was my grandma from Sicily. As I read this funny story to my own 3 year old grandson, I changed my American accent to an Italian accent which really made my grandson love the book even more. I am sure the author was writing about his experience with his own grandma from Italy. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend children of any age to read it and compare their grandma to Joey's grandma.. It is a great way to introduce multicultural traditions.

When a boy takes his friend to visit his Italian Grandmother, he is at first embarrassed by her, then jealous of her attention to his friend. But in the end, he realizes how much she loves him and how much he loves her. A great story for all of us who have unusual relatives and friends. My kids and students ask to hear this charming tale again and again!
