Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People, cooperative project of the National Council for the Social Studies and the Children’s Book Council.
Review, Kirkus Reviews:
“A nice choice for school and home, these selections incorporate warmth, gentle humor, a variety of languages and a range of family groupings while they show some of the many things that a grandparent and grandchildren can do together.”
Review, San Francisco Chronicle:
“We meet an Italian called Nonno, a Russian called Dedushka, a Japanese called Oji-san and many more, including American ones called Grandpa and Pops. There’s even a dinosaur-loving kid who calls his Grandpasaurus. Wolff uses painting and collage to create real-life scenes of grandfatherly fun. And she includes a list of international grandpa names at the back.”
