Grandma Rose’s Magic by Linda Elovitz Marshall, illustrated A.G. Jatkowska

From Goodreads: “Every day Grandma Rose sews and every day she saves – for a set of beautiful dishes with pink and red roses and blue trim. And whenever she sews, something magical happens. A tale of generosity rewarded.

Read the story to the class and then process it with these or similar questions:
  • Did you like the story of Grandma Rose?
  • Do you have anyone in your family that sews?
  • For what was Grandma Rose saving?
  • Have you ever saved up money for anything?
  • What did Grandma Rose do with everything she made?
  • Do you think she would have gotten to her goal faster if she hadn’t included the extra special things with the items she made?
  • Why do you think she made the extra special items?
  • How disappointed do you think she was when she couldn’t find the dishes she wanted?
  • How happy do you think she was that the townspeople thanked her with the dishes she had wanted?
  • Do you think she expected the townspeople to do that?
  • How can you create magic the next time that you do something or give something to someone?
