The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, May 2012:
"The narrative is particularly effective in converting childish concern into caretaker reassurance ('When your mom and dad leave, pat your grandpa’s hand and say, "Don’t worry. They always come back" ’)...While grandpas will obviously enjoy sharing this story with their little ones (and parents will enjoy purchasing it for a Father’s Day gift for said grandpa), there is enough playfulness here to broaden the appeal to a wider audience."

The jokes are mild and predictable but still affectionate and cheerful. The book's tone is consistently upbeat and there aren't any jokes or funny bits that make you pause and wonder why anyone ever thought "that" was funny.
Both because this is about as appealing as store-bought whimsy can get and because grandfathers are a hard bunch to buy anything for, this book worked for me. And I'll guarantee that if you sit down to read this book with one or more of your grandchildren, you'll end up doing some of the things that are suggested as grandpa pleasers.
who needs a sitter. It follows their activities and adventures for the entire day ending with the PARENTS coming to take
the SITTER home. This would be a great book to read just before a visit to Grandpa or for a child to read aloud to Grandpa
during a visit!
