I Really Want to See You, Grandma

Publisher: Chronicle Books

Yumi and her grandmother have the same great idea at the same time: they want to see each other! So, without letting the other one know, they set off on a journey to go to the other’s house. Yumi takes a bus to Grandma’s, and Grandma takes a train to Yumi’s house, only to find that she isn’t there. Both are surprised and head home, passing each other on the way without knowing it. Oh dear! Fortunately, Yumi hops on her bike, and Grandma on her motorcycle, and they meet under a tree. Perhaps it would be a good place to meet in the future…

Simple and lovely with a warm colour palette and a charming grandmother and granddaughter team, Taro Gomi has created another wonderful book about everyday life, with an enduring message that love conquers all obstacles and distances. Little ones will enjoy naming all the different types of transport, too.
