The Grandpa Book

site search by freefind advanced

written and illustrated by Todd Parr

These companion books about grandparents explore all the different kinds of grandmas and 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
