When Jenny and Stevey visit Granny's kitchen, they find it full of wonderful things to see, do, smell and, probably best of all, eat, as they are joined by the many barnyard animals, who are shooed out by busy Granny. In Kim Fernandes' first published book, she uses colourful baker's clay and Plasticine to illustrate an explanation of "What did you do all day at Granny's house?"

The children I read the book to were not especially interested in it or entertained by it, since the book lacks a story-line, but it does provide inspiration for writing their own "stories" of what they do at Granny's house. The illustrations could also give children ideas for a craft project for "My Family" studies in the Primary grades.
