written and illustrated by Todd Parr
books about grandparents explore all the different kinds of grandmas
grandpas there are. In The Grandma Book,
some grandmas have lots of cats. Some have lots of purses. Some
dance, some hula hoop, etc... In The Grandpa Book,
some grandpas collect things, some ride in wheelchairs,
some put extra marshmallows in
your hot chocolate, etc...
Both feature Parr's trademark simple, brightly colored illustrations that mimic children's drawings. And both books end with a reminder to tell your own grandma or grandpa that you love them!
School Library Journal rightly called these
books "Good additions to any
collection and wonderful choices for a storytime."
Interest Level: Preschool - 1st grade
Here are sample pages from inside these book. You can see how these simple, bright, energetic illustrations would appeal to children! The first three pages are
from The Grandma Book...
...and the next three pages are from The Grandpa Book. Some pages are more busy than others, but all have just one sentence about grandmas/grandpas plus a fun illustration to go with it.
