Meeting Grandmom by Jessica D. Adams revolves around the story of Janiece and Janielle who have never met their grandmother because she passed away when their mother and Aunt Jenny were teenagers. The story sees the two girls traveling back in time during the Christmas vacation of 2015. That gives them a chance to meet their grandmother and spend some time with her. The grandmother thinks it is her two daughters, unaware of the fact that they are her granddaughters from the future. The two girls fall asleep listening to their grandmother’s bedtime story. When they wake up, they are in their own house. Janiece and Janielle cherish the moments spent with their grandmother and decide they would have called her Grandmom if she were alive.

The story is adorable and the moments shared by the two girls with their grandmother are real, tangible, and relatable. The concept is simple and will make children want to find out more about their close relatives whom they have never met. The warmth and love in the story spills out and will make readers feel good. It is an endearing story that can be used for bedtime storytelling and read aloud sessions in classrooms. It is a fun read and is entertaining as the story takes young readers back to a time when technology was almost nonexistent, and they see how these two girls have fun playing with toy cars, dolls, and stuffed animals. The story will also help youngsters to find out more about the loved ones they never met.
