KIRKUS REVIEW

Lloyd-Jones’s celebration of the grandparent/grandchild bond presents itself as an instruction manual for children. Readers are advised not only to dance, sing and play with their grandparents, but also to “help” grandma and grandpa cross the street and park the car, to make sure they take their naps and to let their grandparents give them special treats that mom and dad won’t allow and permission to stay up past their bedtimes. Most importantly, of course, kids must hug and kiss and love grandma and grandpa, because that’s what they “like best in all the world.” Readers of all ages will appreciate Emberley’s lively illustrations. A wide-eyed, open-mouthed grandma tiger in pink nightgown stands on the bed as she tells her grandchild a bedtime story; a little rabbit feeds a chocolate ice-cream cone to an exhausted grandpa rabbit who sits in the middle of a sandcastle. The notion that grandma and grandpa’s house is a no-rules-apply zone won’t sit well with all parents, but who cares? It’s not for them. (Picture Book. 3-6)
