Cute Kids Books About Grandparents

Below are some of the best kids books about grandparents. These books are fun to read any time of the year. Grandparents will love reading them to their grandkids (or getting them as gift) and in the classroom, these books can be an especially fun addition to your Grandparent's Day celebrations.

Did you know that Grandparent's Day was created to encourage children to tap into the wisdom and heritage of grandparents?  What a beautiful sentiment and a great idea! Grandparents love sharing their life experiences and wisdom, and what young kid doesn't love to spend time with Gramma and Grandpa. :)

If you have a Grandparent's Day at school, like many schools do across the nation, why not have one of the grandparents read one of the books about grandparents listed below. They'll feel included and the reading will have more meaning. :)
