Anna and Grandma are planning a surprise for Dad's birthday. Dad thinks he has received all his presents, Grandma stands up and gives him the best one of all: she reads aloud the stories that Anna has taught her. A loving story about a proud granddaughter and her successful efforts to teach her grandmother to read.
A plug for literacy is just the bonus; the real focus is on the lessons old and young share when they learn to read each other's hearts.
