When Abby moves to Israel with her parents, she is excited for all the new places to visit, things to learn, and people to meet. However, she misses her grandmother back in the United States and how they used to jump in puddles together when it rained.

This is a sweet book about the loving

relationship between a grandmother and her grandchild. It is apparently loosely based on the author's own experiences when her daughter moved to Israel. There are definitely some insights into Abby's life in Israel, although the focus is on the bond between her and her grandparent.

The illustrations fit the text well, showing the many expressions of the characters as time progresses and situations change. There is also some diversity within these, which is nice.
