Synopsis

Grandma Comes to Stay by Ifeoma Onyefulu, Ifeoma Onyefulu

First Experiences is an exciting new series portraying young children's very first experience of nursery school, time with grandparents and other events. The first time for anything can be daunting, and these books set out to familiarise children, through simple read-aloud words and beautiful photos, with what seems, at first, unfamiliar but will eventually become a routine part of everyday life. In this book set in Ghana, Stephanie is getting everything ready because Grandma is coming to stay. Grandma shows Stephanie how to wear traditional dress, reads her favourite book, and takes her to see real-life dancers at a festival. In return, Stephanie shows Grandma how to kick a ball, ride a bike and play the drum.

Reviews

This is just one in a brilliant series of books that give children a very tangible idea of what life is like for children and families in very different parts of the world... such books should be implicit in your setting for children to readily access and choose freely on a daily basis because they support cultural diversity and inclusion in a very positive way. EYE Sharing the experiences of these activities in an African setting allowing children to capture the universality of such first experiences.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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

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.
