Book Review: Mind Your Gramma!

Mind Your Gramma!
Author: Yvonne Morrison, Illustrated by Nikki Slade Robinson
Scholastic, Hardback, New Zealand

We recently gave this book to the girls' Granny. She is referred to as the "grammar police" from time to time by family and friends, so this seemed a rather brilliant book for her to share with the grandchildren!

Gramma asks me about my day, and I say, Me and my friend played soccer. She says, My friend and I played soccer. I say, At your age? Kids and adults alike will laugh aloud at this series of hilarious misconstruals between a child and her grandmother as Gramma corrects the child's grammar!

We all absolutely love this book - it is hilarious.  Even the littlies at 2 and 4 enjoy it - or maybe they just enjoy the rest of us getting a kick out of it!?  A funny (or alarming) reminder of what's becoming of our language skills.

Gorgeous illustrations accompany this hilarious story.  We will be sharing it with many people and it's already a firm favourite.

Linking up with Remaliah hosting this months' Book Club with a fantastic review of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. 

Happy Reading
