A Picture of Grandmother
( by Esther Hautzig/ illus. by Beth Peck, Farrar Straus $15 Score: ) It is 1939 and Mama and Grandmother have been invited to the World's Fair in New York by Mama's brother. Sara wishes she could go, too. But, Mama is acting oddly and won't answer Sara's questions about the photo Uncle Benjamin wants her to bring to America. This slim chapter book portrays a well to do Jewish family in prewar Poland, a far cry from the typical image of the poor farmer in the shtetl. Still, the family secret about Mama's mother and Sara's grandmother are timeless. 8 & up.
