Library Journal
For small children, weekends spent with grandma is the equivalent of catnip. In this charming activity book for grandparents, readers will delight in a simple yet captivating bounty of spoils sure to cement Grandma’s rock star status. Replete with beloved fairy tales, recipes such as Peter Rabbit salad, and homemade crafts like pinecone birds and pressed flowers, the book also includes a special section with space for building family trees and remembering important dates. Full color illustrations from the likes of Beatrix Potter and Kate Greenaway perfectly capture the innocence of a leisurely childhood and will enchant junior as much as grandma. Yes, one can find all of this information elsewhere, but this is a pitch-perfect combination of simple activities and vintage drawings that make for an instant homesteading classic.
VERDICT Wrap this book with a bow and send your mischief-making deputies to grandma’s. As Gehring states in the tear-jerking introduction, “Grandparents…are in the perfect position to make their grandchild feel like the most important thing in the world just by being present, by listening, [and] by taking time to get to know him.” A lovely title that captures a most special relationship.
