The Grandma Book and The Grandpa Book, by Todd Parr.
Two wonderful books by Todd Parr to show your grandparents / parents that you care about them
Written with love, care – and humour the Todd Parr way
Straightaway The Grandma Book kicks off with ‘Some grandmas have a lot of cats’ – ‘Some grandmas have a lot of purses’… halfway though we are cheerfully reminded that ‘Some grandmas like to make you eat a lot’ – and ‘All grandmas like to hear from you’… then towards the end we are correctly told that ‘Some grandmas drive slowly’ – while ‘Some grandmas drive fast’ – and we are shown a bold picture of a purpled haired grandma whizzing at speed in her wheelchair!
The Grandpa Book follows in hot pursuit… The first page starts off with ‘Some grandpas collect a lot of different things’ and there stands grandpa surrounded by a bowling ball, a spanner, a framed picture, and a pair of Y-front underpants, among other things. ‘Some grandpas have a lot of pictures of you’ – and grandpa is shown with this wallet dangling as a cascade of photos hang down… nearing the middle of the book we are told that ‘Some grandpas can wiggle their ears’ – ‘Some grandpas let you try on their glasses’… Towards the end we get to see a grandpa walking his dog as we are told that ‘Some grandpas like to walk’ – ‘Some grandpas like to drive’… and we are shown a grandpa with two huge tuffs of blue hair. He is smiling and waving with one arm happily. Just like grandma, he is also in a wheelchair and speeding along.
Both these books are so wonderfully illustrated by Todd Parr. His characteristic style of attractive colours and childlike depictions are a treat for all children and parents.
These books are sold separately, but The Grandma Book and The Grandpa Book go wonderful together! For those who are fortunate to have both grandparents with them, these books are a must!
You can read these books to your children, or have your children read them to their grandparents to show their appreciation!
