Description

A little girl's grandmother travels the world and brings her back the gifts of love and respect for a hundred different places.

A Message from Jo Ellen Bogart I have always been a curious person. When I have a question about something, I like to go looking for the answer. Writing gives me the chance to investigate many subjects that interest me and even find new subjects I would not have thought of otherwise. I hope that my books give you lots to think about.
