Silly Yaya by Violet M Favero (Author, Draft Writer)Silly Yaya is a book of grandparent names and the one-of-a-kind relationship between grandchildren and their grandparents. What do you call your grandparents? Or what do they call you? This children’s picture book was written for children who do not call their grandparents the traditional grandma and grandpa. Instead, Silly Yaya tells the story of why “Each one (grandparent) needs their own special name. From family to family, they are not always the same.” Explore the book with your child or grandchild to see if the names they call their grandparents are listed in the book. Find the special spot at the end that makes Silly Yaya a Keepsake Book. The author illustrated this family tale in colored pencil to resemble endearing childlike drawings that toddlers love to walk around with saying “read Yaya”. Certain to become a family classic!

Silly Yaya series is available for purchase here at AmazonBarnes & Noble and Books-A-Million online.
