“I want to give you a little something…”
Each time a young girl visits her grandmother, the visit ends with the grandmother’s familiar words. Then she gives her granddaughter a small keepsake. As the years pass, the grown granddaughter comes to understand the significance of all the things she has received from her grandmother, including the last gift of a special cedar chest. It becomes clear that the most precious gift of all is the gift of love.
A Little Something is about love and legacies across generations. One reviewer describes the book as having “the emotion of Love You Forever and the nostalgic charm of a Norman Rockwell painting” (read more reviews). The story’s message is timeless, because loving connections across generations never go out of style.
The heartwarming story is beautifully complemented by the evocative, richly-detailed, golden watercolor illustrations of award-winning artist Laurie McGaw.”
Have a great Grandparents Day!
