Synoposis from Amazon:
Have you ever wondered why your kids love to go to their Grandparents house? Enjoy this fun and light-hearted book that shows the special relationship between Grandmothers and Grandchildren.
I loved the word repetition and so did my daughter. In fact, she kept saying along with me, “I’m going to gramma’s in my pajamas” each time it was written in the story. My 2.5 year old son loved it as well! My kids both laughed out loud at various parts (eating cereal with feet, drawing on the floor, etc.). They loved the story and they loved the pictures!
The story was simple, funny, and adorable. I love that all of the drawings were completed by a 12 year old boy! He did a fabulous job and it adds so much character to this charming little book. This story will absolutely appeal to boys as well as girls. Such a cute book. 🙂
As a teacher, my students would have loved this story and it would have led to a great classroom discussion! As a parent, I really enjoyed reading it and laughing aloud with my children. I will be passing this book along to the grandparents…they will so love reading this story with my kids!
My 6.5 Year Old Daughter’s Thoughts:
“I like when he says “I’m going to gramma’s in my pajamas” and I like when he said he can color on the floor and eat cereal with his feet. I can’t believe a 12 year old can draw pictures like that! How did he DO that? I would read this book again!”
A Conversation with Barbara Berg Mies, In Her Own Words…
How did you create the idea for your book?
My children and their grandmother were the inspiration for this book. They have a very special bond. One morning they asked if they could go visit Gramma in their pajamas….and the book was born. I slowly started writing lines for the book and once I put them all together, I needed to find an illustrator. I thought, what better way to connect with kids than to have another kid draw pictures for the book. My friends 12 year old son loves to write and draw his own stories, so I asked him if he was interested in illustrating my story. He did an amazing job bringing my story to life with his drawings.
What audience would be most interested in your book?
2-6 year olds (preschool and kindergarten ages)

Any additional information that you would like to provide about you or your book:
“I’m Going To Gramma’s In My Pajamas!” was illustrated by a 12 year old boy. Every image was thoughtfully hand drawn, which brought the words of the book to life.
This is Barbara Berg-Mies’ second children’s book (the first is titled “The Silly Sneeze”). Barbara Berg-Mies started writing children’s books after her two beautiful little girls entered her life. Children are such an inspiration and they bring joy, love, and laughter to people everyday! Their laughter and innocence can never be re-created, but hopefully, with a few words, these books can be enjoyed by many.
