What is a glam-ma? She is a grandmother who lives life to the fullest and in the most glamorous way. This book celebrates the women who make every visit a special event and show their love for their grandchildren in everything they do.
“If you take Glam-MA on vacation, she might build a world class sandcastle…or she might go diving with dophins. (Possibly both!)”
There are many examples of Glam-MA in action making a grand entrance, turning a blanket into a super cape and throwing the party of the season. The illustrations are very cute and filled with fun details. Keep this book around for when your grands visit. No matter whether they call you Mimi, Gram or Beeba, you can remind them you are a Glam-Ma too.
