Lily loves spending time with her Grammy Lane, riding tractors in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter. She loves playing golf and going to the clubhouse with her Bubbe Silver. And she especially loves the holidays--Christmas with Grammy and Hanukkah with Bubbe. There are Lane family traditions. And there are Silver family traditions. But Lily wishes she could share a tradition with both of her grandmothers. Maybe it's time to start a new one. . . .

Ages 4-6. Lily loves spending time with her grandmothers, but they're as different as could be. When she visits Grammy Lane, they ride a tractor or go snowshoeing. then return to the farmhouse to eat red flannel hash. Bubbe Silver, who lives in a tall apartment building in the city, takes Lily to play golf and serves her gefilte fish with extra hot horseradish. Lily goes to Bubbe Silver's apartment for Hanukkah and Grammy Lane's house for Christmas. Lily loves carrying on the family traditions from both sides, so she starts a new one of her own: Grandmothers' Party, bringing Grammy and Bubbe together to enjoy each other's food and company. Written from Lily's point of view, this warmhearted picture book celebrates the bond between grandparent and child as well as the importance of family heritage in a child's life. Hayashi's lively pencil-and-watercolor artwork reflects the subtlety, humor, and affection inherent in the text. A welcome picture book for the many children whose families celebrate both Jewish and Christian traditions. Carolyn Phelan
