Children's LiteratureAnticipation builds as a little girl counts down the hours awaiting the arrival of her beloved grandfather. As he travels for a visit, there is much to be done to get ready. She helps her parents sweep and dust the house, rakes the leaves from the yard, picks a handful of flowers and then just waits patiently for the magic moment when he comes through the garden gate. Part of the "My First Reader" series, this title tells a simple story in rhyming sentences. The words are introduced before the story with an extensive word list, giving parents or teachers the opportunity to practice the words with new readers. Once they are confident, the youngsters will move through the story quickly, aided by the colorful, detailed drawings. 2005, Children's Press/Scholastic, Ages 4 to 7.
