Summary: Who is a better friend than Grandma? No one, if you ask Henry (our young narrator). She loves him, encourages him, shares things he likes to do, lets him do things that Mom and Dad don't do, and also helps him solve his problems. This rhyming story celebrates the unconditional love between a grandparent and child.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, read aloud book, learning to read
Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 8; read yourself: 6 to 9
Interest Level: 2 to 6
Age of Child: Started reading with a girl nearly six years old.
Young Reader Reaction: We read this at home, and then our child wanted to take it to her overnight at grandma's house! We shared this book several times ... complete with "Grandma says" editorials!
Adult Reader Reaction: This is a fun story. Our child is younger than the narrator, and we were worried that she would try to do things that are beyond the pale. We should have trusted Grandma!
Pros: This illustrated book is a big smile wrapped in a grandmother's hug. You'll either remember a person like this in your life or wish you had one.
Borrow or Buy: Buy. Your child will enjoy reading this with you, but they will REALLY like sharing it with their grandmother.
