The Grandma Book by Todd ParrThe Grandma Book is a picture book. It is appropriate for children of a primary level. In the book the narrator names many different things grandmas do. For example, one page said, Some grandmas like to dance. Another page says, Some grandmas like to play bingo. I rated this book a 4 because in my opinion this book has a lot of strong points. The main idea of the book proves that a lot of people, including grandmas, are different. The pictures display this idea as well. For example, all of the grandmas have different color skin and hair. They are all dressed the same and are different sizes. The pictures are simply drawn cartoon style which is interesting to young children. I feel as though pictures such as these boost their ego because they feel like they can draw just as good as the illustrator. I feel like a lot of children will be drawn to this book. The repetition in the words on each page will give the children confidence in their reading skills. I could use this book in the classroom to work on fluency considering a lot of the pages start the same way.

10 Books To Read And Discuss This Summer With Your Mom & Grandma
Research shows that reading to children has many benefits. Newborns enjoy the cuddling and the comfort of familiar voices; toddlers love an animated retelling of their favorite story; and older preschoolers like to discuss and ask questions about the tale being told. Reading to children exposes them to rich language and diverse content and teaches them basic speech and communication skills, helping to prepare their minds for success at school. It enhances their concentration and logical thinking skills. Not least among the benefits of reading to children are the enrichment of family ties and the establishment of an atmosphere of trust. And it's just plain fun!

Reading is a solitary sport, which is why I love it. Alone time plus a good book equals my happy place. Like many people, summer is when I read the most — as I sit on a beach chair with my toes deep in the sand, or with my feet up on our pontoon boat, or on my porch with fireflies flickering in the dusk. But some books are too good to experience on your own. They beg to be talked about. Sure, a book club is a great place , but with these 10 books, I recommend a more familial crowd — your mom and grandma and any other people in your life who fill those roles. As you finish each one, discuss over scones and coffee or wine and cheese — and you might just learn some new stories about your own family, too.
