Various Book Reviews of Grandma's Hat by Rosemary Kahn

Here are a number of Book Reviews written about Grandma's Hat when the first publication came out. As mentioned, the book has been printed twice already and is due to be printed a third time.

The Argus (A Cape Town Newspaper)- Dec.1989
Grandma's Hat by Rosemary Kahn, illustrated by Terry Milne.
No one could tell stories like Grandma, especially those about her childhood in the Karoo. She tells of her Sunday best clothes which included a hat - the ugliest hat she had ever seen -and how she lost it. She gets a beautiful replacement and once again comes across the old one, now serving a useful purpose. A gentle story of a time gone by.

FAIR LADY Magazine
Grandma's Hat by Rosemary Kahn - A gentle, humorous story about a little girl and a dreadful hat, set in bygone days in the De Aar district. Lyrically illustrated by Terry Milne.

Grandma's Hat by Rosemary Kahn - thoroughly captivating! - Marina le Roux - ISKEMUS

Cape Times - Joan Shaper Cohen
Wallow delightedly in whimsical, witty words. Grandma's Hat by Rosemary Kahn seems to spring from deep emotions and recollections of childhood as Grandma tells her grandchildren the simple, real story of an episode of her life as a young girl living in a small Karoo town.
