9780060531768: A Special Gift for Grammy

Newbery Medal winner Jean Craighead George, author of Julie of the Wolves, wrote more than one hundred books for children and young adults. In her heartwarming picture book, A Special Gift for Grammy, she celebrates the relationship between grandmother and grandchild.

Hunter loves his grandmother so much that he gives her a very special gift. He presents Grammy with a pile of stones that he has carefully collected, and his grandmother is delighted. She finds them as amazing as Hunter does, because she shares his imagination and his appreciation of the natural world. Together they discover many uses for the stones, creating memories that will last a lifetime along the way.

Jean Craighead George’s A Special Gift for Grammy is illustrated with expressive full-color art by the acclaimed team of Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher.

From the Back Cover:

As Grammy kissed Hunter good-bye, she saw the pile of stones.

"What do I do with a pile of stones?" she asked Hunter.

"What everyone does with a pile of stones," he answered.

"Of course," said Grammy.

Acclaimed author Jean Craighead George tells a touching story of love and imagination—one that captures the close connection between a young boy, Hunter, and his grandmother, a very special surprise, and a gift like no other.
