Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—In this story about how children should treat their elders, grandparents and grandchildren representing all kinds of animal species play together, enjoy snacks, take trips, tell stories, snuggle, and share secrets. Lloyd-Jones's text is both charming and tongue-in-cheek as she explains the rules for a variety of youngster/oldster interactions: "It's important to let your grandpa have some of your ice cream, and let him build you big sand castles like when he was a boy"; or, "You need to teach your grandma football, let her score touchdowns, and then shout, 'Good job, Grandma!'" Emberley's enchanting illustrations mirror each character's personality: a monkey grandfather, wearing a hoop earring and pushed-up spectacles, sits on a lounge chair and reads to a lap full of squirming grandbabies; a large bear is hugged by a circle of smiling cubs; and a pig grandmother sits on a couch with two piglets and a bucket of popcorn. The joys, frivolities, and frustrations that are part of the intergenerational dynamic as well as the special bond that exists nowhere else are all delightfully conveyed with deadpan humor in both text and art.—Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY

This book is so precious!!! It uses things that the child should be learning to teach a grandparent how to behave. This is a great gift for expectant grandparents. I loved this as much as my grandaughter. My girl was able to go over safety and the ways I should behave. I think I learned a LOT!

Purchased as a gift for a baby shower given by one of the Grandmas, it was an instant hit with the guests. It was for
a baby library being established before the baby was even born. What a great idea.

This book is adorable! I bought it for my parents and mother and father in law from the kids, it was so cute and funny and relatable, I couldn’t help making little notes on the pages reminiscing about funny stories or how this pertained to them and my kids.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very funny guide for young children on how to "take good care" of your grandparents. From "letting them win sometimes", to making sure they get their nap..."You might need to join them once in awhile", this is beautifully illustrated and told with a wonderful sense of humor. Parents and grandparents will enjoy the humor as much as the children do!
Our bookstore can't keep them on the shelves.
If you want to share laughs with your grandkids,The Ultimate Guide to Grandmas & Grandpas! this is the book!!
