Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PerS-K-This picture book takes a gently humorous approach to grandparents, presenting their assets, drawbacks, various names, and appearances. Several cartoon drawings on each page feature various sets of children interacting with their relatives in warm scenes of sharing family history, hugs, snacks, etc. The text and art are arranged on spreads by topic ("All Grandparents have their own names," "Not all grandparents have free time," etc.). Each small drawing has a line of explanation and often includes a dialogue balloon with comments from the characters ("Grandpa bought me a dog!"). The grandparents are different in appearance, lifestyle, personality, and in the ways they interact with their grandchildren, but all of the families appear to be white and middle class.

Books about families are a must-have in a child's home library. Children love to hear stories about people who are just like those in their own families. "Grandparents!" provides such stories.
In this book, children will enjoy hearing and learning about different kinds of grandparents - where they live, what they do, how they help the family, and just how important they really are.
MyParenTime highly recommends the book, "Grandparents!" - it does a wonderful job of showing the many different roles that grandparents play. Also, the illustrations are colorful and entertaining, and the size is just right for a child's hands.
