Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In reassuring couplets and gentle ink-and-wash drawings, the team behind Love Is a Handful of Honey explains just how deep grandparents' love for their grandchildren can be. "It's heaven to see you!" exclaims Grandma Bear as she greets Little Bear. When the fellow asks her what heaven is, she replies, "It's not all that easy to tell you, Because heaven is so many things." Yet she goes on to describe pleasures very much of this world: "It's chasing you around the garden And hearing you shriek with delight. It's lying down while you sit on my tummy And tickle with all of your might." The text frames single-page images and full-bleed spreads, sometimes with creatively curvy type lines. Cabban shows Little Bear and his grandparents spending time in gentle ursine exploits on flower-sprinkled meadows, as well as the grandparents' cozy cave with its big red armchair for eating cupcakes in and an enormous blue towel for drying off after a bubble bath. In the soft pastel glow of a summer sunset, Little Bear reunites with his parents. Without a theologically conventional definition of heaven, this volume will likely have universal appeal to grandchildren and grandparents alike. Ages 3-7.

Format: Hardcover
My mother bought this wonderful book for my 18-month old son and it has become one of his favorites. It is a wonderfully sweet story about the love of Grandparents for a grandchild. Several of the story items fit exactly with things my son does, making it almost seem like the story is about him. This is a book I will keep forever to remind me of what he was like as a young child.

Someone bought my kids another by this author and I LOVED it - this one is really cute, but it's more about the grandparents, which I didn't know when I bought it. Cute story and my kids like it.

Format: Board book
This book is just right...not too long or involved. A simple story told by a Grandmother bear to her grandchild, about how very much she enjoys their time together. Love it!
