The Hula-Hoopin' Queen
The Hula-Hoopin' Queen would be a perfect grandma gift for a young reader – especially from a grandma that's still young at heart. Pair it with a sparkly hula hoop and you're all set! Godin's text has snap and is great fun to read aloud. Brantley-Newton's illustrations really appeal to my students, capturing the feel of our multicultural urban community. Pair this fun book with a hula hoop set and maybe you'll inspire some intergenerational or neighborly contests of your own.
