Grandma is taking a trip around the world, and she's bringing back wonderful gifts for everyone!

My grandma went a-travelling, said:

“What would you have me bring?”“Not much,” said I,“Just a piece of the sky,and a hundred songs I can sing . . .”

When Grandma heads out for adventure she asks her granddaughter what she should bring back.

The creative response and remarkable fulfillment are delivered through clever rhyme and magical illustrations in this lovely cross-generational story!

This classic tale from award-winning creators Jo Ellen Bogart and Barbara Reid is now available with a fresh new look!
