MY THOUGHTS:  Anna is off to visit her Grandmother, who lives in Canada.  Anna lives in Africa and has never been away from home.  When she gets to Canada, she finds it's very cold and lots of snow.  Her grandmother has a dog, Qimmac, who Anna doesn't trust.  In her country dogs are bad, they bite, they are dirty and they give you sickness.  So seeing Qimmac, she thinks he's a bad dog.  But they soon make friends.  Anna also makes friends with the children of the neighborhood.  She learns how to slide down a snowy hill.  Anna has all kinds of memories to take back to Africa.  Very nice book.  I give this book 5......
