Product Description:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Jay Jay is dropped off at his grandmother's house while his mother goes to pick up Dad. Grannie's house is full of love, full of food, and full of family and friends. It is also full of interesting things to do and all of the attention an active boy needs. While Grannie prepares dinner, hungry Jay Jay distracts her over and over again. Experienced and unflappable, she keeps him busy setting the table, watching the fish in the tank, and looking out the window for expected guests. When everyone arrives, a wonderful feast is set out-chicken and yams, collard greens, biscuits, and much more. The text has a catchy rhythm and lots of descriptive words. The acrylic-and-pencil illustrations bring it all home. This family resemblance is clear in the depictions of these African-American relatives. Grannie's home is attractive and everything about her is comfortable-her slippers are soft and her armchair is cushiony. Pair this book with Cathryn Falwell's Feast for 10 (Clarion, 1993) in storytime or share it with someone alone. Just don't miss it.

About the Author

Trish Cooke is the author of numerous books for children, including the award-winning SO MUCH, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, and THE GRANDAD TREE, illustrated by Sharon Wilson. Of FULL, FULL, FULL OF LOVE, she says, "Sunday dinner is just another excuse for my family to party. And believe me, we do! On Sunday Mom's house is always full. It's like musical chairs sometimes because you can guarantee that if you get up from your chair, someone else will have filled it by the time you get back! The best thing is there are always lots of hugs to go around!" Paul Howard has illustrated many books for young people, including THE OWL WHO WAS AFRAID OF THE DARK by Jill Tomlinson and CLASSIC POETRY: AN ILLUSTRATED COLLECTION, edited by Michael Rosen. Of FULL, FULL, FULL OF LOVE, he says, "Jay Jay's Sunday reminds me of my own nan's mammoth Sunday dinners when I was a child. From behind your shoulder Nan would always put more food on your plate - despite the helpless pleas, 'No more! No more!' "
