Grandma Calls Me Gigglepie

J.D. Lester, illus. by Hiroe Nakata, Random/Corey, $7.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-375-85904-5
Sprightly watercolors explore the special relationship between grandmothers and their grandchildren in this companion to Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants and Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug. In grandma's cherry-wallpapered kitchen, a laughing toddler explains, "Grandma calls me Gigglepie... a treat that's sweet and funny." And in rhyming couplets, animals share the terms of endearment given to them by their grandmas. A snake breaking through its shell is "Snaggletooth" ("see how I broke my egg?"), and a flamingo baby declares, "Grandma calls me Tricky Chick... hey, look! I'm on one leg!" Readers for whom a grandparent is a primary caregiver should especially value this buoyant affirmation of affection. Up to age 3. (Mar.)
