KIRKUS REVIEW

The extraordinary bond a young child enjoys with a grandparent is expressed through a series of activities they share.

Whether through an overnight visit at Gran and Grandpa’s or a fun-filled summer day trip, this child enjoys the particular affection and endearing rapport that only a grandparent can provide. Sleepovers at Gran and Grandpa’s house include a bedroom filled with toys, an abundance of delicious cupcakes and ice cream cones, and time tinkering in Grandpa’s shed. An anthropomorphic zebra family takes center stage, with a supporting cast of friendly jungle animals, in boldly hued, engaging scenes that include a day at the fair and a swimming jaunt. Time spent snuggling and reading and a bedtime “kiss night-night” conclude the special visits. While the simplicity of the message of shared love is evident, it is the beauty and strength of the relationships fostered between the elder generation and its youngsters that come through for adults sharing this story with children.

Sweet and appealing for the preschool set and a winning gift purchase for the grandparent crowd. (Picture book. 3-5)
