Good Monday Morning!
Just a quick announcement about blog happenings.
Next week Three Show Saturday will take part in its first ever blog tour to help promote Sylvia Liu’s book “A Morning With Grandpa”!
Sylvia was kind enough to answer a few questions so I will be sharing that interview with you all then as well. In the meantime, her blog tour is in full swing on other blogs, so please have some fun and check out all the great posts.
And as a bonus for today, and in honor of Mud Show Mondays, here is my review of her fantastic picture book coming out later this month.
A Morning With Grandpa
Written by Sylvia Liu
Illustrated by Christina Forshay
When Mei Mei sees Grandpa dancing slowly in the garden she wants to know what he’s doing. When Grandpa says he’s doing Tai Chi, Mei Mei wants to do Tai Chi too! But when Grandpa moves like a gentle breeze, Mei Mei is a frisky fall wind! With each move Mei Mei tries to follow Grandpa but she’s not slow and steady like him. With Grandpa’s help, Mei Mei learns there are many ways to do Tai Chi.
A Morning with Grandpa written by Sylvia Liu and illustrated by Christina Forshay is a delightful and endearing tale of young and old. With a poetic feel to the prose, the contrasting natures of Grandpa and Mei Mei carry the reader from one beautiful page to the next. A wonderful read for parents, especially grandparents, to share with little ones. A reminder that everyone does things a little differently and friends can be old or young. The additional information about Tai Chi and Yoga at the end of the book is a wonderful bonus.
Thank you to Edelweiss and Lee & Low Books for a reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
