Reviews

PreS-Gr 3-In this story about how children should treat their elders, grandparents and grandchildren representing all kinds of animal species play together, enjoy snacks, take trips, tell stories, snuggle, and share secrets. Lloyd-Jones's text is both charming and tongue-in-cheek as she explains the rules for a variety of youngster/oldster interactions: "It's important to let your grandpa have some of your ice cream, and let him build you big sand castles like when he was a boy"; or, "You need to teach your grandma football, let her score touchdowns, and then shout, 'Good job, Grandma!'" Emberley's enchanting illustrations mirror each character's personality: a monkey grandfather, wearing a hoop earring and pushed-up spectacles, sits on a lounge chair and reads to a lap full of squirming grandbabies; a large bear is hugged by a circle of smiling cubs; and a pig grandmother sits on a couch with two piglets and a bucket of popcorn. The joys, frivolities, and frustrations that are part of the intergenerational dynamic as well as the special bond that exists nowhere else are all delightfully conveyed with deadpan humor in both text and art.-Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
