Overview

Everybody is in such a hurry these days—mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers. About the only people who aren't in a hurry are grandfathers. With them there is always time to stop...and look...just as long as you like.

This gentle story about the warm, happy relationship between the oldest and youngest ones in the family was originally published in 1959 with illustrations by Paul Galdone. Now freshly reillustrated by the internationally acclaimed Jan Ormerod, it is sure to find its way into the hearts of a brand-new generation of readers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
In contrast to mothers, fathers, and older siblings, this warm, simple picture book shows how with Grandfather, the young protagonist never hurries, but is able to "walk along and walk along and stop...and look..." just as he likes. Endearing watercolors showing a young African-American boy enjoying nature with his grandfather, paired with a brief, repetitive text, make this book a good choice for pre-school/toddler story times, as well as individual sharing. 1994, HarperTrophy, Ages 2 to 7, $16.00 and $5.95. Reviewer: Gisela Jernigan—Children's Literature
