About This Book
Grandmother and I are sitting in the big chair, rocking. We rock back and forth, and back and forth. And Grandmother hums little tunes. And her shoes make a soft sound on the floor.
The floor is fine for sitting on, and it's nice when brothers and sisters let you ride on their backs. Mothers' laps are good when there's not enough room on the bus, or when you need to have your hair braided. But this little girl knows where she wants to be when she has a cold, or when lightning is coming, or when the cat hasn't come home: on Grandmother's lap, rocking.
Freshly illustrated by an internationally acclaimed artist, this loving portrayal of the relationship between a little girl and her grandmother is a joy to read and share. Use it in conjunction with its companion volume, Grandfather and I, for units on family.
