This is a really sweet story about a little girl who wants to go spend the day with her grandma, who of course is very happy to have her come. The rhyming is a bit cheesy at times, but over all it is cute. I think any grandma would enjoy reading this to their grandchild!

I wanna Go to Grandma's House

I recently just became a grandmother and I can hardly wait to have my grandson call and ask if he can come to grandma's house. What a beautiful story of love between a grandmother and grandchild. It made me want to create memories with my grandson and future grandchildren. I purchased all of her books through you and can't wait until you get the rest of them.

Halo means happiness to me...because of this book!

I read a book to my granddaughter, Aurora, a dear friend had sent me... i read it to her mainly because she had 1st grade homework which included reading time...since we had her with us, it was my pleasure to sit and read to her. We hadn't done it in awhile..and she used to love love love to have me read to, being a big girl 6 she loves to do other things. The book is very sweet titled: "I Wanna Go to Grandma's House" The book goes along nicely sort of like a poem..rhyming words here and there.. real cute. The little girl in story is about Aurora's age and the grandma is 5 yrs older than i Anywho, at a point in the book, the grandma talks of the granddaughter being an angel..and, in fact, at times she can see the lil girl's HALO. As i read this, Aurora stopped me and asked me what a halo i explained it to her w/ motioning in circular pattern over her head she said: "You mean like the one i see around Nick's head?...." me: "you see one around Nick's head?" Aurora: "Yes, only it has a big rock on his head"... I let it go and later as we sat talking about something else i brought the subject up again as i was REALLY curious what she was talking about....(to say the least!) She explained to me in detail...that the halo around Nick's head had a beautiful rock on front of it and when she see's him (don't YOU see him grandma????!)...he's got it on his's beautiful...and Nick always looks happy and is smiling at Aurora or waving at her. She went on to tell me she sometimes see's him in her dreams and they have fun and laugh and play...other times, she see's him in the daylight....:*)***....don't you, grandma????..... I told her no and she asked why.......i told her sometimes children can see things adults can't see and sometimes some adults can see them, too..but not always... no, i can't see him..i wish i could... You see, my son, Aurora's Uncle Nick, died in mid-August... I am forever grateful my friend, Rosemary, chose this book to send for us as we probably never would have had this conversation otherwise. Of course, it is immensely comforting to me and a story I will never forget. Ever.

It's Simple Things That Make a Special Day!

Grandma Janet Mary has captured the perfect day to spend with a grandchild. It's a day filled with baking cookies for Grandpa filled with some extra crunch, singing in a spoon, swimming (even with Grandma's extra skin!), picking flowers, and having a hamburger and fries with Grandpa. This book in rhyme takes us back to the simple things in life that will make a grandchild feel special. The llustrations by Craig Pennington bring the story to life. He has captured the loving likeness of Grandma Janet Mary and her day with her grandchild. I have already purchased 20 of these books and have given them to my children and as gifts for Grandparents. This is a book of love to be enjoyed for generations.

It's no wonder this book is an award finalist!

"My Grandma thinks I'm pretty great and I think that of her." There's an excitement about going to visit one's grandmother, no matter what our age, but it's truly special when we're young. In this tale, told in poem form, the author has captured the magic and unconditional love that so often permeate the grandchild-grandparent relationship. Janet Mary Sinke writes of her subject with insight, warmth and love. As the two family members spend a day together - baking, swimming, lounging in the hammock - they relish their companionship. "I crack an egg. I make a mess. But Grandma doesn't care. She lets me crack another one, then brushes back my hair." From the dust jacket photograph, the reader can see that Sinke is the model for the "Grandma" in this beautifully illustrated book - which makes the story that much more real and immediate. Grandmothers will certainly see themselves in these pages, and young girls will love the way they are celebrated. A sweet bonus is a recipe for "Grandma's Oatmeal Cookies" at the end - which, if it's as good as the book, should be delicious. It's no wonder this book was chosen as a finalist for the 2005 Benjamin Franklin Award: Bill Fisher Prize for Best First Book. [...]
