Tea With Grandpa by Barney Saltzberg

“Spending time with Grandpa is always fun. Singing, laughing, eating, and playing. And when it’s time to say goodbye, it won’t be for long because he’s never too far away to have tea.

“In this sweetly simple, rhyming picture book by acclaimed author/artist Barney Saltzberg, a little girl tells us about her daily tea ritual with her grandfather where they sing and laugh and clink their teacups with the help of their computers and a video chat.”                  [JPB SALTZBERG]

Abby is overwhelmed by the culture clash, the pressures of being the daughter of India’s most famous celebrity, and the burden of keeping her identity a secret. But as she learns to navigate her new surroundings, she just might discover where she really belongs.”                   [J BAJAJ]
