Book Review by Clair Ottman (Cherry Valley Memorial Library, Cherry Valley, NY)

This little gem of a book from Operation Outreach-USA Press packs a punch. It covers family, sharing, caring, play, community, the days of the week, bird identification, and color theory all at a 1st to 2nd grade reading level. The pictures are colorful with an urban setting. Any child would love to own a copy of A Week at Grandma’s.
