Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Bunting's touching story of an unexpected birthday treat contains a subtle message about adult literacy; PW said, ``Carrick's glowing watercolors are the perfect partner to this story of a warm and loving family.'' Ages 3-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 3-A loving story about a proud granddaughter and her successful efforts to teach her grandmother to read. A plug for literacy is just the bonus; the real focus is on the lessons old and young share when they learn to read each other's hearts. A joyful surprise for any day of the week. (June, 1989) Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
