Description: Lina, the main character, is walking through snow to visit her Sitti, her grandmother, who lives in an independent living building. The two are going to stuff grape leaves, an activity that’s harder for Sitti because her sight is failing. Sounds have become very important to this Lebanese grandmother and granddaughter. This book encourages readers to make their own snow sounds, discuss other ways to hear snow, and learn about onomatopoeia. (Adapted from Bookology Magazine)

Read a book review
Description: Art contradicts text, thus challenging common myths about older adults. For example, the text states, “I’ve been hearing lots of strange things about old people. Some people say they are NOT MUCH FUN. They say grandparents are SLOW…and CLUMSY…” In reality, Yoga and dancing and more are shown, even a little romance.
