Synopsis

Grace and Family by Mary Hoffman

To Grace, family has always meant her Ma, her Nana and her cat, Paw-Paw, so when Papa invites her to visit him in the Gambia, she dreams of finding the kind of family that is idealised in stories. But, as Grace soon finds out, families are what you make them. A warm and delightful follow-up to the international best-seller, Amazing Grace.

Reviews

'Caroline Binch's illustrations of The Gambia are carefully observed and beautifully executed.' 'Caroline Binch'

.' ... here is a story that addresses the inner problems of the growing child and does so without heavy didacticism. A great benefit is that it is written at the level of a relatively easy read for the Year 3 or Year 4 child || A great way to link geographical work with PSHE or to extend it through the Literacy Hour.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
