Grandma's Tiny House

Grandma’s Tiny House by author JaNay Brown-Wood and illustrator Priscilla Burris

Age Range: 3 – 5 years

Publisher:  Charlesbridge

Publication Date: August 8, 2017

This rhyming counting picture book cooks up a lot of love and togetherness when a large gathering outgrows the space in grandma’s home such that guests cannot eat and socialize comfortably. The solution is a simple one that many children will be able to relate to if not in their house perhaps in someone else’s. Mouth watering dishes are deliciously depicted and can encourage conversations about different foods that people like to eat. My Book Eyes adored the busy scenes giving readers much to absorb.
