Our Granny

Our Granny

Two children compare their granny with others. Some grannies have thin legs, fat knees, crinkly eyes, or big soft laps. Their granny has a wobbly bottom and wears an old red sweater that was grandpa's. She has a style all her own--and to the children who love her, this granny is perfect. Full of warmth and good humor. Full color....

    I liked learning how grandmas come in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. Both of mine are really different from each other, and I love them both to bits. ...

    Though these grandkids point out many different kinds of grandmas, it is clear that they love and are very proud of their own granny. I was rather fond of her, too. Loved the "wobbly bottom" part and how she wears her late husband's old sweater sometimes. This is a sweet story with fun...

    I loved this?it?s definitely my favorite Vivas book. Wild does a great job at describing all of the different ways grannies can be, and Vivas illustrates them so delightfully. It?s perfect for showing how people under a specific title can be so different and so similar. It?s a ...

    Our Granny is a fiction book, about two children comparing their granny to other grannies. Some of the comparisons include where they live, their physical appearances, and their different jobs. This book relates to my topic because their granny is a part of their immediate family and a...

    This is a fun story about grandmothers. My mother-in-law lives with us, so this book was a great reminder of how lucky we are to have extended family close by (especially since we're military and move fairly often!) I love that it shows that grandmothers come in all shapes and sizes, h...

    While this story does a wonderful job giving background on all different kinds of family dynamics and how everyone?s family can be different, I felt the story over all was very repetitive and didn?t really capture my interest. The story would be good for introducing different cultu...

    A young boy and girl share the things that some grandmas do, followed by what it is that their granny does. Illustrations are bright and humorous. I enjoyed this book because it focuses on the day-to-day things between grandmothers and grandchildren from a simple, caring, fun, ligh...

    Two children compare their grandmother to ones that they know around them. Their grandmother lives with them and always manages to give them kisses. Their grandfather died and their grandmother still wears his scarf often and misses him a lot. This is a touching story on how all grandm...

    I love reading this book to my GRANBABIES! ...

    People are all different, interesting and loveable. ...

    Delightful! ...

    This book is a shout-out to awesome grandmothers everywhere. It is voiced by two grandchildren celebrating their granny, and explaining that all grannies are different.They compare their granny to other grannies,and through this the reader sees that this granny happens to be very indep...

    Our Granny honors grandmothers from all walks of life. Whether they live in an apartment or a trailer, whether they play cards or sing in a band, whether they have had three or six husbands, all grannies are special to someone. One granny in particular means the world to the characters...

    ?Our Granny? starts as a story about a granny who lives with her daughter and grandchildren. Written by Margaret Wild ?Our Granny? gives an informative text about Grannies and many of their different characteristics. The main idea of the story is that not all grannies, nor peop...

    This story is funny, crazy, entertaining and definitely meets a lot of the qualifications for a quality children's book! The book is interesting to children -- showing things that crazy grandparents do, it is age appropriate, it utilizes style and language that are appropriate for chil...

    'Our Granny' is a story told by children describing the characteristics of their grandmother. The narrator, the grandchildren, are giving a description of the everyday life of some grandparents. Different grandmothers appear throughout the text showing the roles of a grandmother. As a ...

    This book is a great book to share with a class for Mothers Day in order to help the students think about the celebration of mothers and different ways that they could appreciate their mothers. After reading this book it could be followed up with an activity where the students make a c...

    I liked that in this book the Grannys are all doing different things. I enjoy that the Grannys give kisses differently and live in different types of homes. However, I did not like that all of the Grannys had something ugly going on like wobbly bottoms, fat knees or bristly chins. I su...

    Granny's are a bag of all-sorts; some with fat knees, interesting hair, or even a wobbly bottom. They babysit, play golf, drive trucks and perhaps even wear a big bra. The lovely ladies in this tale are bold, barely dressed, dancing, smiling, remembering and giving smoochy kisses. G...

    Genre: Picture book Reading Level: Late emergent/early Topics & Themes: Grandmother's come in all shapes, sizes, clothing, activities Curricular Use: Read-aloud Social: Grandmother marches in demonstration Literary Elements: States variety of things a granny can be, ...

    My grandmother gave me this book when I told her I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. "Our Granny" uses a variety of adjectives to describe differnt types of grannies, so I would use this book to discuss adjectives and their purpose. The illustrations are simple and so cute in ...

    This book centers around two children who compare their grandmothers to other grandmothers. It playfully explains the differences between the grandmothers. One quote from the book that I thought was cute said "Our granny has a wobbly bottom". The pictures are colorful and attention gra...

    This book was great - right up until the page where granny does exercises because her bottom is too big. This is just another way in which girl children absorb the message that their appearance matters more than anything. Granny doesn't exercise for her health, she needs to worry about...

    "Some grannies live in... apartments, big old houses, old people's homes, little rooms in the city, trailers, farmhouses, cottages by the ocean, nursing homes, or nowhere at all." Pros: Interesting look at different grandmas while bringing it back around to narrator's grandma. It wa...

    This is a wonderful book that students that live with their grandmother's can read (or even just children that love their grandmothers). Two children are comparing their grandmother that does a lot of things other grandmothers might not do, to other grandmothers in the world. At the en...

    This is a hilarious book - talking about all the different kinds of grannies - all shapes and sizes with all kinds of different interests. The illustrations are very funny - depicting the assortment of grannies. The overall message is that what matters the most is the love grandmas hav...

    A story celebrating all kinds of grannies, Australian Maragaret Wild's text is funny and sweet, but Julie Vivas's illustrations of "women of a certain age" will make you laugh out loud and cheer "Yea for Grannies" at the same time. ...

    I love this book! My granny is my best friend so when I read this book I fell in love with it. This is another story I would read when talking about families and how families are not just moms, dad, brothers, and sisters, but sometimes grandparents can live with you too! ...

    Let's leave the size of ladies' bottoms out of children's books. This is way too early to be taking on the message that we exercise because we think we're too big - and not because it's good for our health. ...

    This book centers around two children who compare their grandmothers to other grandmothers. It playfully explains the differences between the grandmothers. One quote from the book that I thought was cute said "Our granny has a wobbly bottom". The pictures are colorful and attention gra...

    I liked learning how grandmas come in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. Both of mine are really different from each other, and I love them both to bits. ...

    Though these grandkids point out many different kinds of grandmas, it is clear that they love and are very proud of their own granny. I was rather fond of her, too. Loved the "wobbly bottom" part and how she wears her late husband's old sweater sometimes. This is a sweet story with fun...

    I loved this?it?s definitely my favorite Vivas book. Wild does a great job at describing all of the different ways grannies can be, and Vivas illustrates them so delightfully. It?s perfect for showing how people under a specific title can be so different and so similar. It?s a ...

    I liked learning how grandmas come in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. Both of mine are really different from each other, and I love them both to bits. ...

    Though these grandkids point out many different kinds of grandmas, it is clear that they love and are very proud of their own granny. I was rather fond of her, too. Loved the "wobbly bottom" part and how she wears her late husband's old sweater sometimes. This is a sweet story with fun...

    I liked that in this book the Grannys are all doing different things. I enjoy that the Grannys give kisses differently and live in different types of homes. However, I did not like that all of the Grannys had something ugly going on like wobbly bottoms, fat knees or bristly chins. I su...

    Granny's are a bag of all-sorts; some with fat knees, interesting hair, or even a wobbly bottom. They babysit, play golf, drive trucks and perhaps even wear a big bra. The lovely ladies in this tale are bold, barely dressed, dancing, smiling, remembering and giving smoochy kisses. G...
