Grandma in Blue with Red Hat (Nutmeg Nominee--Grades 2-4)

Grandma in Blue with Red Hat by Scott Menchin & Harry Bliss--When a young boy learns about what makes art special-sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it tells a story—he realizes that these same characteristics are what make his grandmother special, too. As a result, he finds the inspiration to create his own masterpiece that’s one of a kind. Christopher Award–winning author Scott Menchin and New York Times bestselling illustrator Harry Bliss have teamed up for a celebration of the power of art and expression, and the extraordinary love between grandparent and child.
