KIRKUS REVIEW

 Lucy's grandfather is coming to visit and she wants to make him a picture. No painted picture could ever be good enough; she wants to show him how special he is by creating a one-of-a-kind collage from her kindergarten scrapbox, foregoing recess to gather materials. A curvy mound of hills, a lake surrounded by clumps of flowered material, and a dog made furry by Lucy's own hair complete this tactile expression of love, which her blind grandfather ``sees'' with his fingers. Lucy's easy acceptance of her grandfather's special needs and her enthusiastic labors will warm the hearts of all; Ayliffe uses bold forms, cut-outs, strong lines and crayon-bright colors to convey the ebullient scenes and the small girl's zeal. (Picture book. 3-7)
