Edith Ann Marie was written out of the memory of her loving relationship with her grandmother, Lena.
Edith Ann Marie fills every page with her wonderment of the world through the eyes of a young child. Grandmother echoes her vast knowledge of living in her gentle lessons and reminders, as we wander through the pages of their lives. “Grandma says her heart is full of love for me and she hugs me a lot. A lot of times, she hugs me when she answers my questions. She says the answers stay inside me better when she hugs me at the same time.” Sister, with her rude ways, adds a spark of confusion in Edith Ann Marie’s life. “My sister wears glasses. I wonder why she can’t see the things I see. I thought glasses would help her to see what I see. But when I ask her, "Do you see that cloud that looks like a cat?’" She says, "No, that’s stupid!’"And when I say, "Look at that ant carry that big bug. How can he do that?" She steps on the ant. "Why don’t those glasses help her to see so she won’t step on that ant?" Grandma hugs me and says, “Putting glasses on, Edith Ann Marie, doesn’t always help us see clearly. Some people need glasses for their hearts.”
Parents and grandparents will enjoy themselves as they read this book to their child. The moral lessons in this book give the parent and child the opportunity to discuss the meanings and how it applies to their lives. The art work, created by the author, is in the manner of collage and is three dimensional, which can be detected in the photos on the pages. Material, pastels, hand-made paper and acrylics were used.
