10 Great Picture Books for Grandparents' Day
Unfortunately, The Truly Terribly Horrible Sweater ... That Grandma Knit, by Debbie Macomber and published by Katherine Tegen books, won't be out until October 1, 2009. I haven't seen it, but when it's Debbie Macomber, how can you go wrong? The minute I lay my hands on it, I will report back.
I have read the following books many times to children in my storytimes. All are wonderful, with grandparents as characters.
*What Grandmas Do Best; What Grandpas Do Best--both by Laura Numeroff
*Yoko's Paper Cranes by Rosemary Wells
*Grandfather's Journey by Allen Say
*In the Rain with Baby Duck by Amy Hest
*Mailing May by Michael Tunnell
*My Hippie Grandmother by Reeve Lindbergh
*Abuela by Arthur Dorros
*Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells
*The Napping House by Don and Audrey Wood
*Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco
