Grandma Helps Us Pretend
This book is a look at the fun game of "lets play pretend" that my 4 year old twin grandchildren and I play every day. Kali and Kyle pretend to be animals, we march like we are in a parade, we think how it would feel to be popcorn or butter melting in the sun. We can be ballet dancers, basketball stars or dinosaurs. We can ride on a bus, live in a tent or be trees waving in the breeze. We can be babies, super heroes or even vegetables. The options are endless in our days of play. These games help develop their creativity and thought processes but we just call them FUN.
Grandchildren are a true gift from God. There is nothing more joyful than the sound of their laughter. There is nothing more healing to a grandmother's achy joints than a 4 year old running to you with arms outstretched saying "Grandma, I love you this much!" Along with the title of grandparent comes the freedom to play, giggle and spoil these kids while you love them with all your heart.
A children's book is nothing with out illustrations that make kids get involved with the story. My illustrator, Amy Keech, has captured Kali and Kyle magnificently in her pictures. Her ability to let you feel like you are part of our games is unique.
We hope you enjoy this book as much as we enjoyed creating it.
