Lucy and her grandfather are the focus of this poignant and warm story that teaches that wrinkles are badges of happiness rather than signs of age. Lucy asks Granddad, "Why doesn't your skin fit you? It's all crinkly," to which he replies, "Those crinkles are called wrinkles," each of which he got when he smiled especially big. As Lucy traces Granddad's joy-filled face, he describes his memories and shares the cause of each line--his wedding day, Lucy's mother's birth, precious moments from her childhood, and Lucy's birth, among others. Beautiful drawings recreate each thoughtful memory, and the recollections showcase an intimate bond between the two generations.

Reviews

"I love this one... the illustrations are beautiful. It's like Norman Rockwell stuff ... an adorable book because it puts aging in the context of fabulous memories ... so the question is: if it said 'Grandmother's Wrinkles,' would I be as enthusiastic? Yes." --Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Dr. Laura Live Radio Show "In this heartwarming dialogue between Granddad and his granddaughter Lucy, the lost art of storytelling emerges as the vehicle whereby the elder recounts the happy events behind his every wrinkle." --AcademicPlanet.com "Children will be delighted to use Lucy's method to learn more about their own grandparents' memories." -- Georgia Family magazine "Travel through decades of love and family memories with Lucy and her grandfather. With illustrations that resemble photographs, readers will stare at the shadowing and technique with amazement. Watch how fashion, automobiles and hairstyles change while the theme of life's most poignant family memories resonates in the story." -- Atlanta Parent Magazine , which selected this book as one of their 50 Must-Read Books of 2007 "Stresses the importance of family and friendship over material possessions." -- Learning magazine Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year 2008, with a star for Outstanding Merit "A warm interchange of family history." Children's Literature "A strongly touching book for adults and a warm hug for young children." MyShelf.com "Large, color illustrations with lots of details and short meaningful text make this is a very nice book to share with young children ... What a good idea--wrinkles come from smiles, not frowns ... Recommended." Beverly Combs, Library Media Connection
