It’s Good to Have a Grandpa

Illustrated by Priscilla Burris
Albert Whitman and Co.

“It’s good to have a grandpa, because grandpas like to have fun,” begins this picture book, which shows all the ways grandpas and grandchildren find to have fun together. “If you help your grandpa rake up a great big pile of leaves, he won’t mind if you jump in them. He’ll never say, ‘What a mess!’ Not Grandpa! No, he might even give you a ride in his wheelbarrow. He likes to look for skinks and roly-poly bugs, too, and he doesn’t mind if you comb his hair to look like a woodpecker. Grandpas are great to have around!
