Title: Grandma Stinks
Author: Mark C Collins
Review: I enjoyed the cute illustrations and the story – At first I thought it was strange that the little girl in the story thought her grandmother stunk and had to hold her nose – but then I remembered visiting my great grandmothers home and later visiting her at the rest home and I have to say that both experiences made me think that she did smell a bit strange and not in a good way.
This book brought back many of those memories that I had forgotten – I do visit a few elderly friends in assisted living facilities and well I can understand this book much better looking at it through those lenses. But this book is not cruel and it is well written with fabulous illustration that jump of the page with how cute they are and how well they follow the story. It is a sweet story about a family who is now having their grandmother come and live with them and how the little girl decides what is more important – stink or grandma being there with the family.
Great book for kids.
