The Granddaughter Necklace

by Sharon Dennis Wyeth
illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline
Arthur A. Levine Books; First Edition edition (January 1, 2013)
Review copy from the public library

This book is about a beautiful necklace passed down from generations of women. It’s kindness, and bravery, that gets these women the owner-ship of this necklace. The story is told from a the women who has the necklace at the moment, and she tells the story of how the necklace got passed down from generation to generation. Like how one women (was a girl back then) baked cookies with her mother, and when she saw a poor family she handed them the cookies without hesitation. At the end the necklace is not just a necklace it’s a story of it’s own just told by the beads and string, not words and paper.

I would rate this book a possible 5 stars out of 5.It is a fantastic book, taking you back in time. Although it is a picture book, it’s an amazing picture book, that would put a smile on your face. In my opinion it was a very pleasant read, taking my eyes off chapter book for a bit. --Sh.
