children’s book that takes you back in time.

Annie never knew her grandmother since her mother didn’t talk much about her family and her childhood. But when her grandma got sick, Annie and her mother traveled to Baltimore to take care of her because no matter what happened in the past, you take care of family. The grandmother lived in an old hotel, which Annie thought to be very fascinating. However, the grandmother wasn’t exactly excited to see her long lost daughter who she hasn’t seen or heard from in years. But Annie was able to see a different side to the women when she was transported in time to 1937, and was able to get to know her grandmother when she was a sweet little girl named Molly who was trapped in her room due to illness.

Seven Stories Up by Laurel Snyder is such a charming little grades 4-6 novel about friendship and understanding. If only we could all visit our family trees like Annie.
