There is nothing like a grandmother's love. This sweet story celebrates the special bond between grandma and grandchild at Christmas time. With a bedtime-friendly singsong rhythm and adorable holiday illustrations, this books is sure to charm children and grandmothers alike!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is a sweet little rhyming picture book featuring a grandma and her grandchild preparing for Christmas. The rhyming text is lovely, albeit simple, and the sentiments highlighted by the adorable illustrations are heartwarming.

This is likely intended to be given as a gift from a grandmother to her grandchild, as there are a couple of pages at the back where there's room for Grandma to write a letter to the kids, as well as a spot for a photo.

This would make a lovely Christmas gift. But even if it wouldn't work as such for your family, I'd still recommend checking this one out for the precious illustrations.

Premise: 4/5
