CSK Award-Winning Author Vaunda Micheaux Nelson Pens Touching Picture Book about an Unusual Grandmother

Guía de Regalos

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Vaunda
Micheaux Nelson
pairs up with Elizabeth
Zunon
to tell the poignant, amusing story of an
out-of-the-ordinary great-grandmother in Don’t
Call Me Grandma
from Carolrhoda
Books
, a division of Lerner
Publishing Group
. With mixed-media illustrations and a cantankerous,
unforgettable title character, Don’t
Call Me Grandma
reminds readers that people show
affection in many different ways.

Nell’s great-granddaughter has a hard time understanding her
great-grandmother. She isn’t like other grandmas. For instance, Nell
eats fish for breakfast, she doesn’t hug or kiss, and she does NOT want
to be called grandma. As her great-granddaughter slowly learns more
about Nell’s life, she finds ways to connect with her prickly
great-grandmother.

Don’t
Call Me Grandma
explores the unusual but deep bond between a
great-grandmother and a great-grandchild that will warm the hearts of
readers of all ages this February.
