for Our Granny by Margaret Wild and Julie Vivas
"Some grannies...baby-sit / drive trucks / fix the plumbing / go to college / travel / write books / work in an office / play in a band / or make sick people better. Our granny marches in demonstrations." Two children describe their own Granny's home life, physical appearance and activities in comparison to those of many other grannies in a fresh book that combines the comfort of things familiar with the surprise of the unexpected. Margaret Wild's warm, witty text and Julie Vivas' soft, vibrant watercolors showing grannies of all shapes, sizes and colors engaged in various activities combine to form a book that celebrates difference and love. (Ages 2-4)

"From the intimacy of one family to the rich diversity of all kinds of people, this exuberant picture book celebrates grandmothers, and it does so without earnest messages or reverential role models . . . Grannies can be glamorous, cuddly, vain, or outrageous. . . . This is what family values is all about." -- Booklist, starred review
