Groundwood Books, Ages 4–7

Grandmothers in every culture hold a special place in the lives of their grandchildren. In a busy world, they are often a source of comfort, companionship, and acceptance. Grandmothers can also be a vital link between the generations, passing down cultural beliefs and traditions. This cherished relationship is explored in two new picture books from Groundwood.

Bitter and Sweet, written by Sandra V. Feder with pictures by Kyrsten Brooker, tells the story of Hannah, a child who is reluctant to move to a new city. Her grandmother comforts her with a traditional Jewish wisdom: life contains both the bitter and the sweet.
