Grandmas Are Greater Than Great*


Author: James Solheim


Illustrator: Derek Desierto



Everyone has two grandmas, and every grandma has her own two grandmas, and so on, going back through time and history. And you needed them all for you to be you.

Traveling from generation to generation, this lively picture book offers young readers a bird’s-eye view of how daily life has changed over time. But despite all the differences, one thing has remained the same: a grandma’s love.

James Solheim’s lively text and Derek Desierto’s exuberant illustrations capture the delights and challenges each daughter, mother, and grandma encountered. This rich multigenerational story explores the idea that we are all the product of those who came before us, and it will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Grandmas Are Greater Than Great includes a family tree and basic information on exponential growth.
