There's 's a very special connection between grandparents and their grandchildren, and that bond is warmly celebrated in MY GRANDMOTHER SHOWED ME THE STARS illustrated by Becky Kelly. Remembering her youth in West Virginia Kelly has created a plethora of beautifully decorated products in addition to gift books. You'll find her artwork on greeting cards, calendars, journals, baby clothes, and more. Kelly's paintings are soft pastels reminiscent of peaceful, happy times, often with nature as a focus. Each painting in this small volume is accompanied by a brief text by Patrick Regan reminding us of the many things we've learned from our grandmothers, such as "My grandmother showed me that wisdom comes with age," and "She had the best clothes for playing dress-up." My favorite is "And she taught me that each generation casts lingering light on those who follow." Any grandmother would be pleased to receive this gift as a reminder of a grandchild's love and appreciation. - Gail Cooke
