“The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read.”
Summary: The young narrator catalogs all of the great things shared with Grandma, whether it's a special treat (like ice cream) to having a solution for every problem (the pocketbook full of treasures). This is a picture book that celebrates a grandparent-child relationship.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, anytime reading, learning to read
Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 6; read yourself: 4 to 8
Interest Level: 3 to 6
Age of Child: Started reading at 3 years old.
Young Reader Reaction: S/He likes the story, but of the grandparent books in the collection, this isn't their number 1 selection.
Adult Reader Reaction: The story, as a list of things a child likes to do with Grandma, is rather bland. It's a nice book, just not a rib-tickler.
Pros: The events are those toddlers and preschoolers can easily relate to. This will likely be a better learning-to-read book than a read-aloud story.
Cons: None, really.
Borrow or Buy: Skip it. You might consider borrowing it, but there are other books with similar themes to engage your child.
