By now, you all know that I love a good children's book. Well, I just received a copy of a brand new one. It's called "My Far Away Grandma," written by Deborah Riemer and illustrated by Susan Sargent. This book is full of bright, whimsical illustrations and was designed to read aloud to children.
This book just happened to arrive while two of my grandchildren were visiting. I read it to them - in person with one on each side of me - PURE HEAVEN! If you read my blog often, you know that all my grandkids live thousands of miles away, so I'm definitely a "far away grandma" and the title of the book instantly touched a tender spot in my heart.
In the book, it mentions the words "scuba" and "tuba." And these curious kids wanted to know what "scuba" and "tuba" were. While I was reading, my husband went to find a photo of him scuba diving in Hawaii. After I finished reading the book, he showed our little ones what scuba meant. They were fascinated.
A couple of weeks ago, the author of this book, Deborah Riemer, contacted me to tell me about her new book. It definitely seemed like a book I would enjoy, so I purchased a copy for myself and Deborah sent me another one as a giveaway to my readers.
So, now you have a chance to win a free copy of this darling new book. Trust me, you and your children and grandchildren will love it. We sure did!
