What’s not to love? When a small child visits with Grandma, she has the best time eating pretend breakfast in bed, doing headstands in yoga, and exploring the flowers in the garden. And when a little one is with Grandpa, he has lots of adventures: learning to make a grass whistle, burying treasures in the sand, and making up stories together. With fresh colors, delicate patterns, and delightful characters, these Super Sturdy Picture Books by Lizi Boyd capture the simple moments shared and treasured by grandparent and grandchild.
A young frog spends the day on his grandpa's farm. They ride the tractor together as they mow the lawn and hum a song. In the barn, they tidy up the tools. Their activities continue throughout the day, including a stop at a diner for grilled cheese sandwiches. When they return home, they sit on the couch and Grandpa makes up stories and takes Frog out to the barn to show him baby birds in a nest. This is a quiet story illustrated in deep pastel gouache. Although it portrays a very busy day and a warm, loving relationship, there is no beginning or ending, which might be unsatisfying to many children.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
