Keeping Up with Grandma

This copy of Keeping Up with Grandma by John Winch is a HB with a DJ. It was published by Holiday House in 2000. Condition: Very Good/Very Good--pages show slight signs of handling; no markings; binding tight; covers like new; DJ shows slight handling; DJ is not price clipped, and has a store sticker on the upper corner of the inside flap; there is a red horizontal marker mark on the ISBN number on the back of DJ--so it is a remainder book; there are no other remainder marks.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3-A pleasing story that emphasizes balance and the simple pleasures of everyday life. One day, Grandma decides to leave her cake baking behind for more exciting hobbies and drags her husband along to climb mountains, paddle white water, and ride broncos. Whatever the activity, Grandpa simply can't keep pace with his intrepid wife. Readers will sympathize with him as he comes face to face with a toothy fish while canoeing, is submerged under a hot-air balloon while still on the ground, and becomes hopelessly tangled in the ropes of a sailboat. After a series of bungled adventures, the well-seasoned couple ends up back at home, their yard filled with the discarded trappings of their travels. Grandma is back to collecting eggs for her cakes and Grandpa returns to his painting-but he now has new inspiration for his pictures. The flat, folk-style watercolor illustrations are a bit nostalgic and are well suited to the tone of the story. While many of the double-page spreads show the adventurers in action, occasional close-ups of their faces convey their respective reactions to each situation and underscore the tongue-in-cheek humor of the text. Children will enjoy the funny details, as Grandpa hangs from a tree while his wife sleds past and barnyard fowl line up to watch the twosome dance. The action-filled text and eye-catching art make this book a winner for group sharing.
