About this title

Synopsis:

Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay. Usually it's the grandparent who takes the grandchild out. But here roles are reversed in a heartwarming story about a little girl who takes her grandmother to the museum for her first visit, allowing them to share something very special together. Written by Lois Wyse, the bestselling author of Funny, You Don't Look Like a Grandmother, with her ten-year-old granddaughter, Molly Rose Goldman, How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum is a charming story of an adventurous little girl and her willing and eager grandmother, and the things they discover during a museum outing together. They visit Apatosaurus, whose bones are even older than Grandma's, and put on their pretend hiking boots for a trek to the Arctic. They imagine elephants trumpeting in the African Hall and travel through time to the Ice Age. How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum mixes photographs with Marie-Louise Gay's whimsical illustrations for a realistic view of the museum, and includes two pages of additional information about the exhibits. But most of all, it's about that very special relationship between grandparent and grandchild, and how the young can often lead grown-ups to the joy of unexpected insight.

From the Inside Flap:

Grandmother always takes Molly to her favorite Interesting Places. But when Molly learns that Grandmother's never been to the Museum of Natural History, it's her turn to take charge.

Written by bestselling author Lois Wyse and her granddaughter, Molly Rose Goldman, How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum follows the pair as they visit Apatosaurus, whose bones are even older than Grandma's. They imagine a Pteranodon showing up at the bird feeder, and count T. Rex's steak knife-like teeth. They shiver while looking at an Ice Age exhibit, and imagine they can hear a gorilla thumping its chest in the African Hall.

But most of all they discover even more about that very special relationship between grandparent and grandchild, and how the young can often lead grown-ups to the joy of unexpected insight.
