A very special picture book about the bond between little girls and their grandmothers. When Nana makes pancakes, I spread the jam. I smooth it right to the edges with the back of my spoon, until it looks like a giant orange sun. Then we roll them up tightly, dust them with sugar and lick our fingers. In this beautifully written picture book a little girl goes to the ends of the earth to find real apricot jam for her beloved grandmother.
"Spare poetic language is intimately paired with subtle pencil illustrations, conveying much in these heartwarming pages." "School Library Journal""
