Great illustrations for you to enjoy...

































The buzz from others on the book...



"A fun look at grandparents and how they all are unique.” ― Ryan Franklin, Illinois State Library

“Absolutely wonderful children's book! The illustrations are AWESOME! Very beautiful. Not only is it culturally sensitive and promotes multiculturalism, it also makes the reader aware of prejudices they may hold. Great book. Great message. Highly recommended.” ― Thomas Benedict, Goodreads




My take on the book...



What a fun book for your collection!  Jeremy's school is hosting a talent show for grandparents in honour of Grandparent's Week and the participants will be the grandparents themselves.  What a novel idea!  Every student expresses the gifts and talents of their grandparents but when it comes to Jeremey's Grandma... well let's just say her choices are limited... or so Jeremy thinks.

Some of his classmates spout off that their Grandma is an excellent cook, another one's Grandpa is an excellent painter, and another one can fix broken arms.  Oh my!  Poor Jeremy, what can his Grandma do to contribute?  

Jeremy asks his Grandma if she can juggle? No... that doesn't go well.  Can she do magic tricks?  She fails again.  Poor Grandma she feels very badly.  Finally the two take a break and go off to play basketball... and that's where Grandma's special talent shines!  She shows her expertise with her skill when it's her turn at the talent show.  Her performance brings raving cheers from all of his classmates!  Hurray for Grandma!  Jeremy is so proud of her!


This inspiring story will have you, the reader, cheering too.  Everyone is unique and has something you really do well.  You are never too old to discover your talent or to show it off to the world!   A perfect book for a Grandma (or Grandpa)  to share with her beloved grandchild.

About the author...








Author Anne Sawan explains: "This story which was inspired by a stroll through the book store with my youngest child where I noticed books about grandparents tended to show them doing things such as playing bridge and knitting, meanwhile I know many active grandparents who are busy writing books and running marathons! I still don't know how to dunk a basketball, but maybe one day I will learn." Anne Sawan lives in Medfield, MA.
