"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."—Kirkus Reviews
