Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When a teacher’s grandfather visits from China, her students—who represent various cultures—present pictures they drew of their grandpas and in short rhymes give the name they use for them and talk about what they “love to do.” The busy, full-page gouache and collage illustrations show the students and their grandpas engaging in a satisfying variety of activities. Wolff provides a similar sweet homage to grandmothers in I Call My Grandma Nana (2009) to be published simultaneously. The final page in each book lists the culture from which many of the terms originated. Although the fact that each child seems to have only one grandparent of that gender (except one lucky girl who has four grandmothers!) might perplex some children, both books would be delightful ways to encourage children to create images and poems about their relatives. Use with Me with You by Kristy Dempsey (2009), about a young bear and her loving grandfather, and Yum! Yuck! by Linda Sue Park (2005), which gives an introduction to cultures through words. Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos

Review

Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People, cooperative project of the National Council for the Social Studies and the Children's Book Council.

Review, Kirkus Reviews:
"A nice choice for school and home, these selections incorporate warmth, gentle humor, a variety of languages and a range of family groupings while they show some of the many things that a grandparent and grandchildren can do together."

Review, San Francisco Chronicle:
"We meet an Italian called Nonno, a Russian called Dedushka, a Japanese called Oji-san and many more, including American ones called Grandpa and Pops. There's even a dinosaur-loving kid who calls his Grandpasaurus. Wolff uses painting and collage to create real-life scenes of grandfatherly fun. And she includes a list of international grandpa names at the back."

More About the Author

I am a children's book author and illustrator in San Francisco, CA. I have lived in the same neighborhood and house for almost 18 years and am lucky enough to work right upstairs in an extra bedroom. I am married to a newspaper reporter and the mother of two teenage boys and a border collie named Lucy. I have created over 40 books, all done in Northern CA, but set all over the world, including in my home state of Vermont, where I had a wonderful country childhood. I still love to be outdoors, whether gardening, watching birds or hiking and skiing.

I loved the concept of this book when I read the pre-publishing tidbits on Amazon so I promptly pre-ordered it. It totally met my expectations when it arrived! The multicultural examples are educational and fun to ponder. So many languages are so similar in the words we use for our grandparents and parents - and this delightful book brings them all together in a classroom setting. The teacher goes around the room and different children talk about their activities with their grandfather - using the name that they use in their native language. The sentences are in rhyme and fun! The illustrations are entertaining and well done. At the end of the book there is a whole list of the different ways to say GRANDPA in a whole lot of languages. I highly recommend this book as a lesson in multicultural and multigenerational understanding! Kudos to Ashley Wolff! ...and then there's Grandma Nana, too! I Call My Grandma Nana

I bought this book for my toddler's Papa so he could read it to her. She has 3 grandfathers and calls them different things...this is a great book for explaining the different names for our grandparents and very culturally sensitive. We loved it!
