Story Time: My Grandmother Lives in Florida at Watchung Booksellers

My Grandma Lives in Florida ShankmanDoes everyone have a grandmother who lives in Florida? Author Ed Shankman and illustrator Dave O’Neill can relate and will read their newest book My Grandmother Lives in Florida at Watchung Booksellers on Saturday, November 15 at 10:30am.

This whimsical storybook is an homage to grandmothers everywhere, as young readers join a child on his visit to his grandmother’s house in the Sunshine State. The book uses Seussian rhymes and rhythms, affectionate humor, and dazzling illustrations to present a child’s-eye view of the grandmother/grandson relationship. “When we go inside, grandma gives me a kiss/In fact, there’s no place on my face she will miss/I may wriggle and giggle and grumble and hiss/But only a grandma can kiss you like this.”

Other books by this duo include such delights as I Met a Moose in Maine One Day and The Boston Balloonies. My Grandmother Lives in Florida will be for sale at the event as well as other titles by Shankman and O’Neill.
