by Sande H. Zirlin, Illustrated by Linda Tracz
Visits To Grandma’s House is the lighthearted story of a youngster’s Sunday visits to her grandmother’s house and the hectic week of preparations that Grandma went through preparing for those visits. Because at Grandma’s house, the Sunday phrase of the day was always, “Ess, ess, gezunterhait mineh kinderlech, ess.'
The story contains a number of Yiddish words and phrases remembered from the author’s childhood visits to her grandmother’s house, and a glossary and pronunciation guide are provided for the reader.
