The Lovereading4Kids comment
Full of affection, this is also a useful guide to how to resolve possible tensions between two grannies! Alvina loves both her grannies and she loves the different things they like doing. But, when the two grannies are left to look after her, things get very complicated. Granny Vero from Trinidad and Granny Rose from England both want to take charge. Should they play dominoes or snakes and ladders? Should they go to the zoo or feed the ducks? Luckily, Alvina comes up with a very clever solution and everyone has a wonderful time.
Shortlisted for the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2009.
My Two Grannies by Floella Benjamin
Alvina has two grannies who she loves with all her heart. Grannie Vero
is from the Caribbean island of Trinidad. Grannie Rose is from the
north of England.
When Alvina's parents go away on holiday, both the grannies move in to Alvina's house to look after her. But the two grannies want to do different things, eat different food, play different games and tell different stories. The grannies get crosser and crosser with each other, but Alvina thinks of a way they can do all the things their own way so the grannies can become the best of friends.
