I saw this book cover on a website and liked it so much.I asked Renate if she can give me a chance to review her book. 
Main character of this book is Grandma Louise. She moves to country side in her retirement from the city. This book shows her experiences in her new home. She met with various animals like frog, snake etc.
Initially she was afraid and didn't like any interference in her home. But later she decided to make everyone her friend. I gifted this book to a friend's son and he likes colorful pics in this book.

This book is a good read for small kids. Book has colorful pages and very detailed description of country side living. Its good for learning perspective as well, as book tells how you can accept new challenges in life.
