Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“Cheerful and cozy.”
Publishers Weekly
The piglet siblings from Mama Loves return, in Grandpa Loves by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, illus. by Kathryn Brown. As with the first book, the piglet narrating varies with each vignette, as one grandchild backpacks with Grandpa, others join in "drumming and strumming" a happy tune on the porch. Together they sing the praises of their grandfather. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Throughout the days and seasons the love of grandpas for their little ones is tenderly documented with lovely alliterative text and charming illustrations, some of which are bordered as if they were photographs pasted into a keepsake album. Each spread depicts Grampa interacting with a little one in some activity where Grandpa's attention is devoted to the child. The settings include a woodland camping trip, building a tree house, going fishing, sandcastle building at the beach, playing baseball, stomping through puddles, sharing music, sledding in the snow, and reading books together. Careful sharing of these little stories within a story will demonstrate the seasons of the year and lots of other things for the reader and the listener to discuss. The basic premise of sharing loving experiences is a powerful message for all little people and those that love them. "Peopled" with pigs the vignettes are well matched with the illustrations and are not inhibited by stereotypes of gender (it is a granddaughter helping to build a tree house). There are many subtle reminders of all of the things that families can and should share with their children. The grandpa figure is dignified, but full of energy and is the perfect role model for fathers and grandfathers. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 2 to 6.
—Sheilah Egan
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A wonderful and touching tribute to the love that grandparents have for their grandchildren. On each spread, an adorable young pig describes what he or she enjoys doing with Grandpa: "Grandpa loves/bare feet and bagels./Coffee with cream./Flipping the pancakes/and mornings/with me." The illustrations alternate between scenes that chronicle everyday activities, from camping to building a tree house, and snapshots of these special times arranged as if in a photo album. The facial expressions show just how much the family members enjoy being together. In the final picture, a smiling Grandpa shares a meal with all of the grandchildren featured on the previous pages. Painted in soft, warm colors, the artwork adds greatly to the feeling of love that pervades this book.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
