Don't forget the Grandparents - bookwraps to enjoy!

Kids' Books About Grandparents

There’s something extra special about grandparents cozying up with their grandkids to tuck into a good story. Here are a few books to make those moments together even more memorable. 

Llama Llama Gram and Grandpa
By Anna Dewdney

Llama Llama is spending the night at his grandparents’ house! He’s having so much fun until bedtime when he realizes he forgot to pack his stuffed toy, Fuzzy Llama. Luckily, Grandpa knows just what to do.

Grandma’s Purse

By Vanessa Brantley-Newton

A young girl waits eagerly for Grandma Mimi to arrive with her purse full of treasures. On this special visit, it even contains a present!

Hey Grandude!
By Paul McCartney, illustrated by Kathryn Durst

Music legend Paul McCartney penned a delightful picture book celebrating the unique connection between a grandfather and his grandchildren. Together, they head off on a breathtaking adventure filled with animals, nature, and danger.

How to Babysit a Grandpa
By Jean Reagan, illustrated by Lee Wildish

Written in the form of an instructional manual for kids who are looking after their grandpa, this bestselling picture book is a hilarious must-read. Little ones will crack up as the babysitting duties are flipped from grandparent to child.

By Arthur Dorros

Rosalba spends the day in the park with her Spanish-speaking Abuela. Together they imagine what it would be like to soar over the sights of New York City. A mix of Spanish and English, their shared daydream is both poetic and fantastical.

Last Stop on Market Street
By Matt de la Peรฑa, illustrated by Christian Robinson

While riding the city bus with Nana, young CJ wonders aloud why they don’t have a car, why he has no iPod, and why their stop isn’t in the pretty part of town.  Nana addresses each question with the patience and grace that only come with living a long, full life. 


Another month has nearly expired and now we are looking at back to school here in Canada.  Wow!  Everyone is bustling around trying to alter bedtimes and shop for back-to-school supplies and clothing.  I know kids are wishing it just ain't so. Most parents have a different opinion on that I think lol!  

As we move into the Fall season and the weather gets cooler there will be more indoor time thus time for curling up and reading even more together.  Be sure to have  library cards ready and a stack of books beside each bed to share before it's lights out.  It will take a little time to get into routine again but it always happens as rules must be followed to get a good night's sleep and everyone's co-operation is needed to make an easy and happy transition from summer mode to school's-in mode.  

I'm looking forward to reviewing more exciting fun books for you to enjoy with your kids this Fall.  It's a long weekend here so I have been gifted with one more free day to indulge in.  You have a great weekend and please join me on Monday as we discover and explore more great kid's books together.  Read on!
