KIRKUS REVIEW

A little girl preps her baby brother for his first visit to their grandparents, sharing travel tips for the long car ride as well as favorite memories of prior visits. Books, games, crayons, and singing help pass hours in the back seat and at journey’s end Grandma and Grandpa wait with the promise of the best time ever. In spring Grandpa performs magic tricks and in winter he builds big snow forts. In summer Grandma plays hide-and-seek and in fall she carves scary jack-o’-lanterns. Soft, gentle illustrations progress from dawn car-loading in the city to dusk arrival in the country, alternating vignettes of the journey with snapshots of Grandma and Grandpa at play. Effectively evokes the anticipation and joy of a childhood visit to grandparents. (Picture book. 3-8)
