Children's LiteratureAs Mother left for work, she told the three older children to look after Stanley. When Stanley asked who he could look after, she told him to take care of Grandpa. Grandpa tried to join his grandchildren in their games. Rex wanted to play soccer, but Grandpa missed the ball and Stanley fell over it. Queenie got tangled up in the rope she was trying to jump because Grandpa and Stanley could not swing it high enough. Flora brought out the jumping ball. Grandpa was too big to make it jump and Stanley was too small. All of this activity wore Grandpa out. He sat down in a lawn chair. Stanley climbed in his lap and sang him a song. When Mother returned home, she found Grandpa and all four of the children sleeping. Large colorful pictures depict a loving family of cats dressed and acting like people. A cozy story for sharing with young children. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 6.
