How Old is Grandma

 


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Antoinette Simmonds will be awarding a $25 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

A humorous family mystery about a Grandma's big secret! Kendall and Kayson love going to visit their grandparents and their Grandma's birthday means CAKE, but how many candles to put on it? As the story unfolds, and misunderstandings abound, inquisitive Kendall is surprised to find out more than he bargained for. “How Old is Grandma?” joyfully illustrates the interactions amongst a loving African American family; children, parents, and grandparents and the learning experiences they share. Warm story-telling with a humor and charm that illustrates an understanding of the funniness and peace of mind that is so commonly found in children. The first in a series of books written for children ages 4 and up.

Thanks so much for hosting us, Our Town Book Reviews!

We'd love to hear if any of you have a fun memory with your grandparents that you'd like to share. Any funny misunderstandings?

We hope you enjoy the book and learning about Antoinette's family experiences as well!

My grandmother always sang 80s Pop songs when we passed a cemetery. She said the songs could wake the dead - haha!

To begin with...so glad to have you on my blog. Best of luck with your book.

You'll be able to tell I'm not a "spring chicken" by my story but as a child my grandfather was a big old tough but soft man and he always called me "peon".

As I grew up and looked the word up I realized it could be meant derogatory. He was gone by then and my grandmother said he meant "little one". That he meant it as an endearing term. Always made it sort of a special name after that.
