Additional Notes

From The Publisher*This sweet story captures the singular experience of a child's visit with grandma. A diverse story for fans of How to Babysit a Grandma/Grandpa and Grandma's Purse or readers who love This Is Sadie.

Maud loves the weekends that she stays over at her grandma's house. There's always breakfast-for-supper, matching nightgowns, black-and-white movies and best of all -- having someone to listen to her dreams for when she grows up. But what makes the visit extra-special is what Grand-Maud has hidden in an old chest under her bed. Sometimes there are paint sets, toys, homemade cookies, handknit mittens or sweaters. But Maud finds a wonderful surprise when she finds a belonging from Grand-Maud's childhood. When she grows up, Maud wants to be just like Grand-Maud.

Maud and Grand-Maud is a sweet celebration of the unique bond between grandparents and grandchildren.
