What a cute little book! Ilene Beckerman writes an adorable tribute to her beloved Jewish grandmother, Ettie. She humourously recounts the bits of advice Ettie dispensed throughout the years – complete with illustrations and pop-art images!
The author lived with her grandmother and grandfather on Madison Ave in New York City in the late 40s. It is fun to add the scenes of the times to Ettie’s anecdotes, with a side of her Jewish take on life.
At just over a hundred pages, this is a very quick read (it took me less than an hour) but it will warm your heart long after you put the book down. It may even invoke memories of your own grandmother – and wasn’t she the smartest woman you know?
