Grandparent Heroes

With Grandparents Day (September 9) just around the corner, Jennifer M. Brown, the children’s editor for Shelf Awareness, has published a list of her favorite grandparent books ("Grandparents We Can Count On").  Among them is The Ultimate Guide to Grandmas & Grandpas! by Sally Lloyd-Jones which offers such advice as “when you have a grandma or a grandpa, you need to scream and run away when they pretend to be a monster” or “you need to hold their hand when they cross the street.”

Here are a few others kids may enjoy:

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly

A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck

Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech

There’s Going to Be a Baby by John Burningham
