Grandma Calls Me Beautiful
Author: Barbara M. Joosse, Barbara Lavallee

A companion to the best-selling Mama, Do You Love Me? and Papa, Do You Love Me?, this beautiful book captures the unique bond that exists between grandmother and grandchild. Set in Hawaii, the vibrant watercolor illustrations and lyrical text combine to capture the lush landscapes and unique traditions of Hawaiian culture, while at the same time conveying a universal message. Sure to be another instant classic.

About the Author
Barbara M. Joosse lives with a ferret, a crow, and a parakeet in a solar house in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Ms. Joosse has a degree in journalism, but since 1978 she has devoted her time and talents to writing for children. She is the author of 27 books for children, including Ghost Wings. Barbara Lavallee's vibrant watercolor illustrations are well-known for their depictions of a wide range of Alaskan life. In 1975, she quit teaching to devote all her time to painting. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska. She has illustrated 13 children's books.

Good luck!
