Ages 3-8. Anna and her grandmother are planning a surprise for Anna's dad's birthday. Every Wednesday night they work on reading, Anna's dad will be thrilled with his gift. I loved the surprise ending, the book is written so the reader thinks Anna is the one learning to read when Anna is actually teaching her Grandmother to read. A great book to inspire a life long love of learning. ( )

In this story, the little girl Anna teaches her elderly grandmother to read. This book is older so it not that surprising that this older woman didn’t know how to read, because back when she was a kid, things were different for girls. Grandma uses this new knowledge of hers to surprise her son for his birthday! And of course, Anna couldn’t be more excited. In social-moral development, this book allows children to Learn about others who differ from themselves and value this diversity and engage competently in group activities. Children often very good teachers. The illustrations for this book are very beautiful and give great context to the story. I would recommend this book for older children about 6-8.
This book was found at the Pierce College Library. ( )
