Warm, welcoming illustrations spice up this rhythmical ode to the joys of family and food - full, full, full of pleasures for all. For the youngest member of an exuberant extended family, Sunday dinner at Grannie's can be full indeed - full of hugs and kisses, full of tasty dishes, full to the brim with happy faces, and full, full, full of love.

Warm, welcoming illustrations spice up this rhythmical ode to the joys of family and food - full, full, full of pleasures for all. For the youngest member of an exuberant extended family, Sunday dinner at Grannie's can be full indeed - full of hugs and kisses, full of tasty dishes, full to the brim with happy faces, and full, full, full of love.

Snuggle up with your little one and enjoy a story about little Jay Jay who gets to spend some time with his Grandma who is Full, Full, Full of Love for him! The story is told through rhyming paragraphs, dialogue, and sentences of varying length. There is also a fun dose of action words like, "Kiss, kiss. Hugs and cuddle," and sound-effect words like, "clink, clank. Clatter, clatter," and even a mixture of the two, "Spalsh, splish. Wiggle, wiggle" encouraging fun and interaction while reading. The colorful pictures take up every inch of space, so there is plenty of detail for your little one to study while listening to you read. The details of the modern looking characters and backgrounds are accurate and realistic - right down to the sheen in the characters' eyes seen during close ups.

There are plenty of experiences in the story that your little one may be able to relate to, whether it's the excitement of visiting Grandma, waiting impatiently for dinner to be ready, getting into the candy dish and accidentally spilling it, enjoying a large family dinner together, or snuggling up to Grandma for hugs and love. It may be fun pointing at and naming all the different foods on the giant table when it is laid out over a two-page spread. Slightly older children may even be able to sound out and read most - or all - of the book, learning a few new words along the way.

I read this book to my friend, Molly, and afterward she wanted to tell me stories about visiting her own grandma, whom she called "Granny." I asked Molly if her Granny made big family dinners like Jay Jay's Gran did, and Molly informed me that, "Granny is the best cook in the world. She is going to teach me how to make everything when I grow up, so I will be the best cook in the world too."
