My Grandma is Coming to Town

By Anna Grossnickle Hines

When a familiar phone voice is suddenly there in person, little Albert develops a major case of shyness, but it’s nothing that sharing some favorite rhymes can’t cure.


Hark, hark, the dogs do bark,
My grandma is coming to town.
She’ll fly in a great big airplane,
Up in the air and down.

Even though Grandma lives far away, Albert loves talking to her on the
phone and receiving the gifts she sends in the mail. So he’s thrilled that Grandma is coming to visit - until the moment she arrives, when he
suddenly feels strangely shy. But thanks to their favorite rhymes and a bit
of make-believe, a long-distance grandma becomes a wonderful reality in
this sweet, cheerily illustrated story about a special family tie.
