Grandma's Gift
Grandma's Gift | Eric Velasquez
3 posts
This prequel to Eric Velasquez's biographical picture book Grandma's Records is the story of a Christmas holiday that young Eric spends with his grandmother. After they prepare their traditional Puerto Rican Christmas celebration, Eric and Grandma visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a school project, where he sees a painting by Diego Velasquez and realizes for the first time that he could be an artist when he grows up. Grandma witnesses his fascination, and presents Eric with the perfect Christmas gift-a set of paints-to use in his first steps toward becoming an artist. A heart-warming story of self-discovery, Grandma's Gift is a celebration of the special bond between a grandparent and grandchild.

It‘s been a tough few days- my Grandma Sally passed away last Thursday. She was the person who taught me how to read, took me to countless story hours, and helped me get my first library card. She always had a book recommendation for me, and she was usually spot on. She didn‘t usually write in the books she gave me, but I‘m so happy she broke tradition for the book photographed, Harry Potter & the Sorcerers Stone.

My Grandma taught us that books were our friends and we should treat them well. She also taught me how to read. She was the best! My mom got me this picture. It says “Books make wonderful friends.” It hangs in my library and reminds me of my grandma every time I see it. Grandmas are the best!
