About the Author
Shelly Becker is the author of Even Superheroes Make Mistakes, Even Superheroes Have Bad Days (a 2018 Blue Spruce Award Nominee that Kirkus Reviews called “an action-packed romp”), and Mine! Mine! Mine!, which has been included on many Top Five and Top Ten lists of books that teach the concept of sharing. Becker lives in Toronto, Canada, far away from her three wonderful grandchildren, who live in New Jersey. When they can’t be together in person, they keep in touch by speaking on the phone and sending plenty of pictures and videos. Visit her online at shellybeckerbooks.com.
"Why does it ever have to end? The details in the illustrations will have children poring over the pages, where the clues to good times past and present add up to a generous look at the special bonds of an extended family."
— School Library Journal
"Grandma’s chic house is a thoroughly imagined home-away-from-home... The duo’s intergenerational affection is portrayed as effortless, effusive, and unconditional. A wonderful celebration of reunions that’s especially meaningful after the pandemic’s long drought."
— Publishers Weekly
"Becker and Yaccarino show how Grandma and grandchild keep in touch while apart, and then a culminating scene shows them reuniting for another visit... There’s lots to love here indeed."
