Book Description:
When Rhondy can’t seem to cheer Grandmama up with a song, a dance, or a gift from the backyard, she tries the one thing she’s sure will work. Rhondy reminds Grandmama what she said about her when they first came to live together: "That’s my joy, that’s Grandmama’s joy. Long as I got my joy, I’ll be all right." "As sometimes happens, the child is more resourceful than the adult.This is the portrait of a relationship, revealed less as a story than as the unfolding of love." — Booklist "A sensitive story that shows the loving relationship between Grandmama and Rhondy." — School Library Journal
