My children thoroughly enjoyed this book. As young grape spends time with his grandfather, raisin, they're both treated to some wonderful lessons.
"If I weren't here to be nervous, you might climb too high and fall," Grandpa Raisin cautions the tree-climbing Grape.
When Grape rescues grandpa from the talkative prune, the raisin kindly whispers, "You saved me again."
As grape says, at the end of the story, "When I'm a raisin, I want to be just like YOU--except king!"
A truly entertaining and thoughtful bedtime story.
