Granpa, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


Granpa nurses his granddaughter's dolls, mistakes her strawberry-flavoured pretend ice-cream for chocolate, takes her tobogganing in the snow, and falls in with her imaginary plans to captain a ship to Africa, like all good Granpa's should.

It is a friendship that children who read this book will long remember.

This book tell the story of a young boy who spends his time with is grandpa all the time. At the end the grandpa dies. Very sad story but very good message for kids.

Review by

This book is not your typical story book. It requires more than one read as the material is presented in dialogue only and has a sad ending; however, the book offers very nice illustrations and great opportunities for major discussions and inferences.

Review by

This is a very sad story about the relationship between a girl and her grandpa. The story ends sadly, but it is a great way to encourage children to see how important it is to treat their grandparents . You never know what tomorrow holds!
