About this title


Although she is embarrassed when her grandmother reminisces with an old friend in public, Rebecca loves her and enjoys hearing stories about her grandmother's life in America when she first came from Russia.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 A common childhood experience, a youngster's embarrassment at the public actions of a relative, is treated respectfully and with understanding. Rebecca loves her grandmother's stories of ``the old country.'' But when Grandma meets an old friend on the street and greets her loudly and in Yiddish, Rebecca is mortified. Perceptive Grandma tells her one more storyan incident from her childhood in which she felt embarrassed by her father. That humiliation was resolved with a glass of tea and a kiss, a solution that Rebecca and her grandmother then share. Detailed watercolor and color pencil illustrations depict the clutter of a bustling city neighborhood. There is a vitality and an energy in the colors, helping these primitive-style paintings to convey the spirit of the city, of a wise grandmother, and of a sensitive child. An engaging story, humorously illustrated, that will strike a responsive chord in many. David Gale, ``School Library Journal''
