Synopses & Reviews
In this lyrical picture book by Kim Rogers (Wichita), with illustrations by Boston Globe-Horn Book Honoree Julie Flett (Cree-M tis), Becca watches her grandma create, play, and dance — and she knows that she wants to be just like Grandma.
Becca loves spending time with Grandma. Every time Becca says, "Let me try," Grandma shows her how to make something beautiful.
Whether they are beading moccasins, dancing like the most beautiful butterflies, or practicing basketball together, Becca knows that, more than anything, she wants to be just like Grandma.
And as the two share their favorite activities, Becca discovers something surprising about Grandma.
"Illustrator Flett's (Cree-Métis) signature, spare style pairs well with author Rogers' (Wichita) simple, repetitive text… A sweet celebration of family, intergenerational bonds, and traditions." Kirkus Reviews
