Is It Any Good?

Winner of a 2012 Caldecott Honor for outstanding picture book, GRANDPA GREEN works on many levels. It's a thoughtful reflection on the life of an older person; a beautiful expression of a meaningful, loving relationship between grandfather and grandson; and a visually dazzling, fun book for kids to enjoy just for the many imaginative creations on the pages. This would be a great book for a grandparent and child to read together, or for a parent and child to read and discuss memories of the grandparents in their lives.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
