9781593540982: That's What Grandmas Are For

"If we want pizza and Grandma would rather have Chinese food, she will eat pizza. That's what grandmas are for."

"If I stop for gas and it's self-serve, my granddaughter will hold the nozzle.

If I'm washing my car, my grandson will help rinse it and wipe it dry. That's what grandchildren are for."

A grandmother and her grandkids tell what makes the other special. This exuberant celebration of the love between grandmothers and their grandchildren will warm your heart and make you smile.

About the Author:

Harriet Ziefert is the grandmother of four and lives in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and Maplewood, New Jersey.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K–Everyone has seen the sweatshirts and house signs, Grandchildren spoiled here. These titles are little more than book-sized restatements of that sticky-sweet sentiment. For example, If I want pizza and Grandma would rather have Chinese food, she will eat pizza. That's what grandmas are for. If I am dressed in jeans and an old shirt and Daddy wants me to put on clean clothes, or stay home, Grandpa will say I look fine and take me out to lunch anyway. That's what grandpas are for. Haley's paintings of cheery children (why shouldn't they be cheery, they always get their way) and adults reinforce this hymn to complete grandparental devotion. Platitude follows platitude. Try Kate Lum's What! Cried Granny (Puffin, 2002) or Douglas Wood's What Grandmas Can't Do (S & S, 2005) for a little humor to cut all the saccharine.–Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME
