DescriptionThis innovative series grew out of a desire to provide all children with the opportunity to see themselves within the books they are reading and to identify with the children and families they see. The diversity of today's families is clearly captured. The simple text and engaging photographs explore the relationship between very young children and their environment. Grandpa explores a young child's world using photographs of a variety of children interacting with their grandpas.

(reviewed with Grandma) These are excellent books for young children. The text and photographs are well chosen. The joy and individuality of the relationships are readily apparent at all times. There is definitely no stereotypical image of grandparents present anywhere in either of these books. As well, the individual cultures portrayed in the photographs in both books enable many children to identify with the subjects. Discussion should emerge naturally from sharing these books. Both Grandma and Grandpa are must-have books... They are delightful.--Gillian Martin Noon, librarian, Old Perlican, Newf"Canadian Materials, Vol. 22, No. 5" (10/01/1994)
