KIRKUS REVIEW

 A modern grandma, wearing jeans, tells her grandchildren what it was like to be their age--she played many of the same games they do and also put on shows for which everything was homemade; she read some of the same stories, celebrated the same holidays, and wondered about the future. The understated rhyming text is nicely extended in new illustrator Arnold's pictures- -using a varied, bold black line and bright but subtle colors, she authentically evokes the 40's. Not an exercise in nostalgia, but a book that effectively bridges the generations by means of their common experiences. (Picture book. 3-8)
