Item description

How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum This copy of How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum by Lois Wyse and Molly Rose Goldman, illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay is a HB with a DJ. It was published by Workman Publishing in 1998. It is the third printing. Condition: Very Good/Very Good--a couple of pages show slight handling; rest of pages show no handling; binding tight; covers like new; DJ shows slight handling along the top edge; DJ is not price clipped. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2-An unnamed narrator takes her grandmother through a natural history museum while acting as a knowledgeable guide. At pauses in front of dinosaurs, animal dioramas, the Hall of Ocean Life, a meteorite, and other exhibits, the girl provides facts ("It's called a goliath beetle. It's four inches long, and its wings are bigger than those of a sparrow") while the grandmother is appropriately impressed and unhurried. Cuts from full-color photographs are integrated into the line-and-watercolor-tinted cartoons of squat, primarily preschool-sized children and adults enjoying the museum. Grandma is depicted almost entirely in profile, a cheerful, casual woman in a dress with a strange tail-like billow to her skirt, who is refreshingly ready to listen and enjoy her companion. Humorous exchanges and asides suggest the mutual respect and love between the two. Peripheral endnotes about each stop add little information to the story. A friendly introduction to natural-history museums. Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA I do combine shipping. THANKS FOR LOOKING!
