About the Book: Grandma is a Survivor by Alana Snyder
What does it mean to be a survivor? Allison always looks forward to day trips to Grandma’s! She visits her favorite park where she eats a delicious picnic lunch, fishes for salamanders, and plays on the playground. But there’s something extra special about Allison’s grandma―she is a Holocaust survivor. Throughout their day together, Allison learns that Grandma’s childhood was quite different from her own, and what it means to be a survivor. Grandma Is a Survivor is a safe and reassuring way to introduce our young readers to the Holocaust through the love between a child and her grandma.
