Heather Grace Stewart and the "Groovy Granny" visited my Grade 1 class! What a treat for my students. Heather had selected only a few poems to read but they wanted more - I'm afraid that she had to do more than one encore! The funny and thought provoking poems stimulated their imaginations and they absolutely loved the colourful artwork that accompanied each poem. "Gadget Snow Pants" lent itself to a fabulously fun art activity where the children painted and decorated snow pants with their own gadgets. Thank you Heather for coming and brightening up our day!

"Groovy Granny" is a MUST HAVE for your family's bookshelf! Mom Heather writes the catchy brilliant verses while daughter Kayla cements each delightful poem with her colorful & clever drawings-destined to be a family heirloom. I bought TWO!

This book is a delight. Heather brings a quirkiness to this book which has echos of Dr Suess but the humour is pure Heather. Kayla's illustrations show a remarkable grasp on the world around her. The opening poem, "Gadget Snow Pants", is pure genius. The young ones will love it. Us big kids will feel like kids again.
