Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Father's Day gives us the chance to re-visit Grandpa Loved, the award-winning classic by Josephine Nobisso. In lyrical language, a boy tells of his grandfather, whose kindly example shows the young man how to love ocean foam, woodland animals, city museums and family rituals. Only at the end does the reader realize the older man has died—and that the boy is finding him again in all the things he loved. Maureen Hyde's soft-toned illustrations reveal the grandfather and child playing and musing in the busy world treasured by them both. A wonderful book to share with any grieving child. 2000 (orig. 1989), Gingerbread House,
— Mary Quattlebaum
From The Critics
A boy remembers all the aspects of life that his Grandfather loved. He is grateful for all of the love that his grandfather "grew in him." After his grandfather dies, the boy believes that his grandfather is free to be anywhere, anytime, and in the lives of all who loved him. Simple text, profound messages, and tender watercolor illustrations make this a good choice. 2000, Gingerbread House, $16.95. Ages 5 to 10. Reviewer: S. Latson SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
