The Book 

This heartwarming story is written in rhyme and love flows through every page. Diverse Grandma's portray the special bond that they have with their precious little granddaughters.  

"Of all the most marvelous things in this world

There are few that can truly compare

To the heartwarming, special, unbreakable bond

That a grandma and granddaughter share."

The text and illustrations immerse you in activities that the duo share as they spend quality time together.  You see them in the garden, enjoying family photos, chatting over an ice cream sundae, splashing in the rain, and a grandma tucking her beloved offspring into bed at night and sealing it with a kiss, just to name a few.  

Grandma has always been there every step of the her little granddaughter's life watching her grow and teaching her  life lessons as she does.  You see Grandma understands how that maturing process works because she's been there before herself and now she can pass her incredible wisdom on to her sweet granddaughter.  

This lovely, heartfelt picture book highlights the unconditional love that a grandma has for her special granddaughter.

"You will change and you'll grow - and how far you will go-
in this wide open, wonder-filled world.
And I'll be here for you with a love deep and true,
because YOU are your grandma's best girl."

"Grandma's Girl" is highly recommended by Storywraps.
