Gracie the Cook Saves the Day
for Burnt King Jack by Grandma Tea

Did you know that you can stop a painful burn from hurting with water and sugar? Join us as the king learns a funny, if temporarily painful lesson from the wise old cooking lady. All is forgiven as they share a wild incident, have a good laugh, work together and share a meal!

"Grandma Tea’s 'Gracie the Cook' takes children (and adults too!) on an adventure of discovery. The story is charming and beautifully illustrated, but purposely leaves unanswered questions. The Discussion Points that are included with the story then guide the child to possible answers by suggesting that s/he Google certain words, thus initiating a treasure hunt of ideas, sounds, and pictures. One result will be that children learn to use and enjoy the internet for learning rather than for entertainment. Even better is the non-preachy teaching of moral/ethical standards such as understanding and forgiveness."

Great job, "Grandma Tea" have truly captured the heart of all, from a young child to a hard worker, to a kindly King and portrayed the fact that anyone can make a mistake, and that all can be forgiven!
