Item Description...
After Kenyon squanders the money he has saved for his grandmother's birthday present, he searches for another special gift

Publishers Description
Kenyon loves to listen to his grandmother's stories almost as much as he loves to play baseball. He'd like Little Dolly to designate him the next Keeper of the family lore, but she tells him the honor is reserved for girls.

Setting out to buy a 90th birthday gift for Little Dolly, Kenyon instead falls for a new baseball glove for himself. As regret weighs down his heart, he confides his shame to his father, who tells him that you can only learn from your mistakes. Just when Kenyon thinks he's run out of ideas for Little Dolly's gift, inspiration hits.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly recommended  May 30, 2000
I enthusiastically recommend this book. I don't have children of my own, but I bought one copy for my nephew and another for my mother (a devoted reader of books for children). The story is simple enough - a boy who saves his hard-earned money for his grandmother's birthday, but then blows it on a baseball glove and has to come up with a meaningful gift that doesn't cost any money. The clever part of the story is that by being forced to think of what would mean the most to his grandmother, the boy is able to come up with a present that's not only better than any store-bought present, but that allows the grandmother to see him in a new light.

I'm especially happy that Watts doesn't write down to children, instead using a quietly humorous, at times bouncy style that appeals to children and adults, such as this line: "Kenyon's quiet easy glide to freedom was frozen by his grandmother's words." Or this one: "'I'm not sick. I'm just stupid.'" Moreover, the grandmother isn't called something common like "Grandma" or "Granny," but the distinctive "Little Dolly." The reader learns a lesson along with the boy, but what's most impressive about the story is that Little Dolly herself learns a lesson, breaking the standard wise-adult, foolish-kid story line.

I liked the full-color paintings, too, which nicely complement the story with a range of unusual perspectives.

This is not one of those picture books you get sick of reading after one or two times. You'll be happy to read it to your children over and over.
