Calling All Grammies – A Christmas Tale of Friendship Flo Barnett (Author), Derek Scott (Illustrator) #HolidayGiftGuide



My Thoughts

This book is hilarious! There should be more light and laughter surrounding Christmastime like exemplified in Calling all Grammies.

I read this to my kids as one of our nightly Christmas stories and they were cracking up! They thought the idea of Grammies saving Christmas was totally crazy and ridiculous and that’s what makes it so fun! Imagine a bunch of Grammies running around on Christmas Eve in their nighties trying to save Christmas!

Banett writes with such a spirit of humor that you just feel good and happy writing this story. Scott perfectly companions the words with his fun illustrations that remind me a bit of a cartoon strip in their design.

I thought it was funny that this was a modern day Grammie that emails her friends. Grammie has to stay with the times to keep up! This is such a unique spin on saving Christmas that I can guarantee you’ve read nothing like it before.

The rhyming is catchy and whimsical and brought even more lightness to an already carefree book.

Calling all Grammies is the book for your family if you like to laugh together and just enjoy the spirit of Christmas and life.
