'Jane Tanner's poignant illustrations beautifully portray the special bond that exists between a grandmother and her granddaughter.' Kids' Reading Guide, Australian Booksellers Association

Emily loves spending time with Grandma.  They dance, have tea parties and work together in Grandma's garden.  But when Emily's family moves to the city, she has to leave her beloved grandma behind.  Grandma gives Emily a strawberry plant to remind her of the fun they have together.  In summer, when the strawberries are red, it will be time for Grandma to visit . . .

A warm and reassuring picture book, celebrating the special bond grandparents enjoy with their grandchildren – even over distance.

'A must for anyone who loves their grandma.'
