Illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay. Usually it's the grandparent who takes the grandchild out. But here roles are reversed in a heartwarming story about a little girl who takes her grandmother to the museum for her first visit, allowing them to share something very special together. Written by Lois Wyse, the bestselling author of Funny, You Don't Look Like a Grandmother, with her ten-year-old granddaughter, Molly Rose Goldman, How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum is a charming story of an adventurous little girl and her willing and eager grandmother, and the things they discover during a museum outing together. They visit Apatosaurus, whose bones are even older than Grandma's, and put on their pretend hiking boots for a trek to the Arctic. They imagine elephants trumpeting in the African Hall and travel through time to the Ice Age. How to Take Your Grandmother to the Museum mixes photographs with Marie-Louise Gay's whimsical illustrations for a realistic view of the museum, and includes two pages of additional information about the exhibits. But most of all, it's about that very special relationship between grandparent and grandchild, and how the young can often lead grown-ups to the joy of unexpected insight. ,By the author of Funny, You Don't Look Like a Grandmother and other books, with over 4.5 million copies in print. For children ages 5-8.

26,000 copies in print.
