The Adventures of Grandma Mimi and Her Boys resulted from the numerous trips taken with her grandchildren. Upon reading newspaper articles about the latest openings of zoos, museums, and citywide events, Grandma was calling her grandchildren for a day of fun events. The metropolitan area and outskirts had many adventures to explore. As always, Grandma Mimi was always reading and ready to go. Traveling by bus, subway, or railroad was a learning experience in itself. The children developed a wide range of interactions with many people. They had fun buying commuter tickets, fares, and entry passes to various events. They even experienced the street vendors and their wares. It was always family fun, fast-moving, and with great love and concern for each other.
