Excellent book!!! Wonderfully written. This is a very sweet story of a relationship between grandparent and grandchild. You will not regret buying this book!
This is a wonderful book! I bought it after it appeared as a suggested book to read in one of my school-aged kids' reading papers. I bought it sight unseen and pages unread and could not be more pleased! It has wonderful pictures and is a great story about a boy and his love of spending time with his grandfather. My one year old loves to listen to me read this book to her! Praises all the way!
Beatiful story about the friendship between a little girl and her grandfather what they will do together when she gets to be the same age as him. Told with a child's perspective and innocence about life, the little girl lists all of the activities her grandfather enjoys and tells him how much she will enjoy doing them together when she gets to be the same age. Sweet and cute.
