I Love My Glam-Ma!


  I Love My Glam-Ma!

A celebration of EVERY grandma's glamorous ways -- and the special love that glam-mas share with everything they do!

"Glam-mas don't just come over... they make a grand entrance! Glam-mas don't just celebrate holidays... they celebrate everything! Glam-mas don't just carry a purse... they carry a treasure chest!"

A joyful celebration of grandmothers who are young at heart, adventurous, and find a bit of glamour in everything they do. Whether these glam-mas are building sandcastles, riding with dolphins, or turning blankets into reading forts and super capes, they live each day with a playful spirit -- just like their grandchildren. From the writer of Crankenstein and the illustrator of Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes comes a playful and heartwarming ode to grandmas and grandchildren everywhere... because there's nothing more glamorous than being a grandma.



"Grandmas come in all shapes, sizes, and races in this up-to-date portrait of grandmothers as young-at-heart, active participants in the lives of their grandchildren... Bright, appealing watercolor illustrations are filled with expressive faces, lots of motion, and clever details for kids to find."
- Kirkus

"A most joyful celebration of bubbes, nanas, grams, omas, and abuelas that reveres the extra flair they bring to just about everything... A jubilant and loving ode to grandmothers of every stripe."
- Publishers Weekly

"Samantha Berger’s exuberant I Love My Glam-ma! features a diverse lineup of glamorous grandmothers who are aging more than gracefully — they’re infusing the experience with youthful enthusiasm and full on flair."

- Romper

"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 the grandchildren and everything they do."
