Silly Yaya

What do you call your grandparents? Silly Yaya is a children’s picture book written for children who do not call their grandparents the traditional grandma and grandpa. Instead, Silly Yaya tells the story of why “Each one (grandparent) needs their own special name. From family to family, they are not always the same.” Explore the book with your child or grandchild to see if the names they call their grandparentsare listed in this book that also talks about their one-of-a-kind relationship.

There is nothing like the special bond between grandparent and grandchild.  Find the special spot at the end that makes Silly Yaya a Keepsake Book. Charmingly illustrated in colored pencil, with a very childlike quality, the young child enjoys looking for the characters in the book they believe are their grandparents.
