Book Review. Grandma's Face. Elaine McKay.

 Rating ☆☆ ☆ ☆ 

Grandma's face has a lot to say. It's her turn to put her grandchild to bed, but it's her cartwheeling eyes, her twitchy nose and the useful gap in her front teeth that make up the real bedtime story.

 My Review 
A charming short story, written in the style of a poem, and with illustrations by Lynne Bendoly. She did a good job of capturing the movements of Grandma’s face.
As a child, tucked in bed, readies herself for sleep, she makes observations of her Grandma’s face, who is bent over her bed. These expressions range from a twitchy nose to a frowning forehead and the incidents that may have provoked them. Humorous at times too, I enjoyed this clever and fun read.
