What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

As Grandma tells it, Maddy was a baby in a great big hurry. On the day she was born, everyone rushed to welcome her into the world. But Grandma, hurrying from far away, worried she wouldn’t get to the birth in time. This is the story of that special, perfect day when Grandma embraces her sweet hurrying child for the very first time. Master storyteller Jane Yolen and renowned illustrator Kay Chorao, both loving grandmas, have teamed up to create a warm read-aloud that children and their grandparents will want to share again and again.
