What Will You be Grandma? by Nanette Newman

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Actress Nanette Newman was inspired by her own granddaughter to write this story about what Grandma might be when she grows up. Together, Grandma and Lily dream up all the most fun and imaginative things a grandma could do to make the world a better place. Emma Chichester Clark’s illustrations capture the very best of a wonderful and very special relationship.


What Will You be Grandma? by Nanette Newman

Every child is asked again and again what they want to be when they grow up, but will Grandma have the answer when granddaughter Lily turns the tables and asks her the question? This delightful story is a perfect book to share with a grandmother and strikes a perfect balance between touching and humorous.
