What happens when three grandmas send the same gift to their granddaughter? A battle to find the best gift happens. She is flooded with all kinds of gifts. They just keep coming until she can’t take it anymore. What she wants more than anything else is to have her grandmas spend time with her. I loved this book because as a grandma I know how we often compete to get our grandkids the “best” gift. I hate to admit that I have been guilty of this. The other great thing about this book is the illustrations and the illustrator. The illustrator for this book is a young man named Justin Acquavella. He is a senior in high school. This was a wonderful addition to his art portfolio for art school. This young man has a lot of talent as does the author who is also a teacher. This is a book every grandparent should read. I loved that it was based on a true story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0990599906, Paperback)

In this story of an extended family, three grandmas accidentally buy the same book for their granddaughter, and they then launch into a gift-purchasing battle for supremacy. The well-intentioned grannies race all over the Internet and town to buy the best present, the one that will win the affections of the child. The poor postman is the one left with delivering gifts of clothes, toys, DVDs, and trinkets until the little girl’s home is packed to the rafters with stuff. Finally the little girl emerges as the voice of reason and points out she cannot wear or play with all of the stuff being bought, but instead wants to spend time making memories with each grandma. In this day and age of families with multitudes of relatives, the message that time is more important than stuff comes through loud and clear.
