Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
There's a special bond between grandchildren and grandparents, and Grandparents Are the Greatest Because... by Adele Aron Greenspun and Joanie Schwarz celebrates what's best about this relationship-just in time for Grandparents' Day (September 7). "They let you stay up past midnight and eat ice cream for breakfast" are just two of the many highlights, which also include "giv[ing] you the giggles" and "let[ting] you make a bunch of noise." Hand-tinted photos and quotes from kids and grandparents add warmth and humor to the scrapbook-like presentation. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Photographs show young and old multicultural grandparents interacting with their grandchildren in a variety of activities that range from participating in sports to sharing old photos, stories and meals, to visiting museums and the beach, and, of course, hugging one another. Along the bottom of each two-page spread is a phrase to complete the title sentence, such as "They tell amazing stories about the past and let you try on their memories." There is one photo per page. Within the frame around it is a quote from either a child or a grandparent, expressing his or her personal feelings. The photos have a soft, hand-tinted look. The end papers are full of a variety of names for grandma and grandpa that include other languages as well as nicknames. This picture book could be used as a discussion starter in schools for students to write what is special about their own grandparents. 2003, Dutton, Ages 4 to 8.
