Praise

Praise for Grandpa’s Face

“Muted realistic paintings complement this story of Tamika, a young girl who grows emotionally through love . . . The carefully chosen combination of visual details and large abstract areas support the notion that love is not always clearly definable.”—School Library Journal

“Poet Greenfield tells this warm family story with tenderness and grace, and Cooper makes an outstanding debut. The realistic, full-color double spreads are rich in earth tones and vibrant colors . . . A treasure to set beside [Ann Herbert] Scott’s Sam.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“With eloquence and a penetrating glimpse of the fears of children, Greenfield has written a moving story about the reliability of love. Cooper . . . creates family scenes of extraordinary illumination.”—Publishers Weekly

“Children resist change. When Grandfather must transform his facial expressions while rehearsing for a community theater production, his granddaughter worries about the man behind the new face.”—Children’s Literature

★”Evocative text and striking pictures … rich visual images.” –School Library Journal, starred review
