It is hard to know who looks forward to a new baby more, an expectant parent or an expectant grandmother. From the time the announcement is made, a grandma-to-be may be full of questions: "Aren't I too young for this? Or maybe too old? What will they call me? Will they need me, or resent my 'help'? Can I really do this?"

So You're Going to Be a Grandma! offers the perfect reassurance in the form of a delightful poem that covers all the doubts and questions, joys and successes as a new grandma proves to be a godsend to her new grandchild and its parents:

"Baby weeps and so does mother,

Daddy isn't far behind,

Both so nervous and exhausted

This is where a grandma shines."

Readers of For Better or For Worse will recognize new Grandma Elly as well as her son, Mike, and his wife, Deanna, and appreciate the inclusion of families of various ethnicities in these heartwarming drawings. So You're Going to Be a Grandma! perfectly celebrates the universal love of a grandchild.
