'Grandma's Saturday Soup' is a thoughtful story, in dual language, about belonging to two places at once and learning to love them both. Sally Fraser's lush descriptions of Jamaica make this a delightful addition to the classroom. Young children will be able to memorise the days of the week by following what Mimi gets up to each day. 'Grandma's Saturday Soup' can be used to discuss personal, social and health education and Citizenship topics such as cultural identity with older readers. The subject matter also makes this title particularly useful for coping with homesickness.
Sally Fraser's delightful description of Jamaica and the wonderful soup, accompanied by Derek Brazell's vivid illustrations, make us all wish that we had a grandma like this!
