Overall, Granny’s guitar is a heartwarming, magical children’s book. It would be an excellent resource to include in the homeschooling curriculum of pre-school age children.

Introducing this topic to my child with this story is a great insight to helping him deal with simple things for now, like forgetting his red car when we go to the park. Thus allowing him to play with other kids toys and make a new friend.
