About the Author:

Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard is the author of several books that celebrate her extended family. The real Lulu is the author's great-aunt. Born in 1870, Lulu was an elementary school teacher for almost fifty years. She also rolled bandages for the Red Cross, worked a swing shift during World War II, learned to create books in Braille, and studied millinery, drafting, ceramics, Spanish, rug-hooking, and leather and metal tooling, and voted faithfully in all local elections. "Was Lulu your grandma?" children often ask the author. "Well, sure," replies Mrs. Howard. "Lulu was everybody's grandma." Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

From School Library Journal:

PreS An excellent book about how it feels to be left behind when an older sibling starts school. Jonathan, in his fireman's outfit, waits and waits at Grandmom's for sister Sarah to come home from school. The sharp, full-color photos and very simple text detail the African-American child's day: reading with grandma, riding his truck ("ZOOM ZOOM BARRUMMM!"), looking out the window, and listening hopefully to the sounds of the mail sliding through the letter slot ("FLIP-flap-plop. PLOP") and the garbage truck grinding up the garbage. At last, the school bus arrives ("VRROM-CHUG-CHUG/MMMM-CHUG"), bringing his sister home to play. The book is sure to appeal to the youngest family members, especially to little boys everywhere who love fire engines and their older siblings.
