When is Grandma Coming Over?

When is Grandma Coming Over?

No matter where people live in the world, the most important people to children are their own family members.  Families are diverse in size, members, and traditions, but the love that family members have for one another is universal.  From an early age, children recognize the special relationships that family members have. Children view family members as teachers, trusted advisers, and even heroes.

These books explore the wonderful concept of family in imaginative, enchanting ways.  Uncle Ivan by Julia Neff captures the emotions of anticipation and worry over seeing a relative who has been away for a long time. This beautifully illustrated book teaches us that family love is everlasting, even when miles separate us from our loved ones, and it will fill your child with the warmth of family during the holidays.   Children will make connections between themselves and the characters in this sweet book, and they will smile knowing that every family is special!
