Kindergarten-Grade 2-In this sixth book about Gus and Grandpa, all of the other students bring interesting items for second-grade show-and-tell, but Gus can't come up with any good ideas. During a visit to his grandfather's house, he looks for something to fulfill his assignment on Colorado history. Enthralled by grandfather's photos and stories of the past, Gus has the perfect show-and-tell at last. All ends happily as both his classmates and teacher are as fascinated by the old man's stories and photos. The text is appropriate for newly independent readers and is nicely balanced by full- and half-page color illustrations. The positive portrayal of the multiethnic classroom is a plus, and the warm, loving relationship Gus and Grandpa share shines through. A charming addition to the series.

Gr. 1-2. The sixth book in the Gus and Grandpa series finds second-grader Gus thinking a lot about show-and-tell. Everything else about school is good, but for some reason Ryan Mason seems to outdo everyone else when it's his turn to show-and-tell. Gus' parents try to help with ideas, and Gus also asks Grandpa for advice. But week after week, Gus feels outclassed. When Colorado history is the subject for the next show-and-tell, Ryan thinks of a wonderful idea and asks Grandpa to come (after all, he is Colorado history). Stock's watercolor illustrations are plentiful and add greatly to the sympathetic tenor of the book. This realistic, intergenerational story demonstrates respect for the elderly and the importance of grandparents in a child's life. Kathy Broderick
