  • Great, thanks

  • great book

  • this is one of the books that I purchase for my oldest niece. She is a reader like her aunt and I want to feed that young brain with positive vibes to encourage her to love herself no matter what she comes against in this crazy world.

  • Although not as good as "Amazing Grace", this sequel touches nicely on the life of a youngster whose mother and father have divorced and life as she knows it. It demonstrates that although her father started a life with a new family, Grace is still a very important part of him and his new family.

  • This is a great addition to the original book Amazing Grace that is included in our 3rd grade anthology. The students enjoy what else is going to happen with Grace and were excited to get her other stories.

  • I had to read this book for a class I'm taking in college -- I'm reviewing children's books. It was actually nominated in 1997-1998 for a "Show Me Reader" award.... it is a local award in the state of Missouri. The language and writing style is rich and varied. The book has beautiful illustratios. Text and illustrations are well integrated. I highly recommend it!

  • This was a great book about non-traditional families which have now become the norm. The illustrations were great. My four year old and my 17month old both enjoyed it.
