A Grandma’s Magic

Doubleday. Apr. 2022. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9780593376003.
K-Gr 3–Offsay tells the story of appreciation, admiration, and unconditional love children experience with their grandmothers. From exploring outside, baking in the kitchen, sewing, and everything in between, each page celebrates this special member of the family through rich illustrations and beautiful imagery. What happens when Grandma has to return to her own home? No need to worry, this book imagines, for her magic stays with the grandchild. Gilland displays this special love beautifully on each page, featuring diverse families for all the wonderful adventures a grandmother goes on with her grandchildren.
VERDICT For story hours or the family shelves, this is a nice addition to larger collections.
