Paula Moyer Savaiano’s own mother Jeanne is approaching 90 years old, but she is still young at heart, full of fun and always up for an adventure. She inspires Savaiano to write the delightful rhyming story “My Gramma Takes the Cake” (published by WestBow Press). Her “Gramma Stories” book series is based on actual events that occurred in her mother’s life.
The book tells the story of a granddaughter who helps her 88-year-old gramma bake an extra special, one-of-a-kind birthday cake. They decide to make up their own secret recipe, and that is where the fun begins. Gramma’s kitchen is filled with sweet smells and crazy antics.
“In today’s society, grandparents are spending much more time with their grandchildren. Many are their daycare providers or even their guardians,” Savaiano says. “This book shares a light hearted rhyming story with lots of fun and a lesson or two to be learned. I also would like readers to realize that spending time together with grandparents is so very important.”
An excerpt from the book:
“Oh, I’ve got the answer, yes siree!
Let’s create our own recipe.
We’ll make it a secret. It’ll be one of a kind.
-A birthday cake recipe that’s just yours and mine.
Time’s a wastin’. This is gonna be fun!”
“Gramma, oh Gramma, I can’t wait ‘til it’s done!”
