Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The original "Families" series was published in 1999; this is part of the newly updated set. This book and others in the series support national social studies standards related to identifying family members and their role in the family. I was fortunate enough to have grandparents until I was well out of college; I even had two great-grandfathers while I was young. As the text states, grandfathers are the fathers of your parents. Some grandfathers may still be working and others may be retired. In any case, they share hobbies or spend their time taking grandkids on outings. The grandfathers in this book are enjoying fun times with their grandchildren. The text closes with the statement "Grandfathers love their grandchildren." That is pretty positive and powerful, but may not always be the case. The book is filled with pictures of kids and grandparents from various ethnic backgrounds, which means it should have broad appeal. There is a five-word glossary, references for two recently-published books and a web address for FactHound, a portal to take kids to safe Internet sites. The last page contains an index, the book's word count, and recommended grade level for the book. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
