My favorite part of God Gave Me Grandma is the pictures!

This board book, for children ages 2-6, is written in small, rhyming vignettes. Each open fold of pages is one large picture of a cute pair of animals with one as the child and one as the Grandma. They are engaged in some normal "life" activity that is described on the page in rhyming verse. Each set of pages contains the phrase, "That's why God gave me Grandma," or "I'm glad God gave me Grandma" - a repeating phrase is always great for small listeners as they can anticipate its coming and actively participate in the book.

This book was just plain fun to read, and even MORE fun to look at and discuss the pictures! I looked back through the book to decide on my favorite pair of animals, and was delighted all over again at way too many to pick a favorite!

I like how this book encourages children to look for, and find, and be thankful for the everyday activities of life that are made special by the care and attention shown by a loved one. It's a great tool for learning, "In everything give thanks"!

I would recommend this book to parents and grandparents of small children. Have fun exploring the pages together!
