COPY ISBN
Toddler-PreS–These immensely charming books about the attributes of grandmas and grandpas covers a wide range of activities and personality traits. Many children will be able to find some connection with their own grandparents in the pages. Grandmas are patient and funny and don’t mind if you spill things. Grandpas are always up for an adventure and full of jokes and like to watch your new tricks at the playground. Both grandmas and grandpas love to tell you stories about when they were young. Difficult topics are not brought up here, but they do both cover that sometimes grandparents live far away and that it’s a real treat when grandchildren get to see them. Parents are not found in the pages, which positively keeps the focus solely on the grandparent-grandchild relationship. Burris’s illustrations are fairly simple, but they do show many different kinds of families and focus on all of the fun things you can do together.
VERDICT These books are full of the warmth and affection that grandparents carry for their grandchildren. Recommended for most picture book collections
