(reviewed with Grandma) These are excellent books for young children. The text and photographs are well chosen. The joy and individuality of the relationships are readily apparent at all times. There is definitely no stereotypical image of grandparents present anywhere in either of these books. As well, the individual cultures portrayed in the photographs in both books enable many children to identify with the subjects. Discussion should emerge naturally from sharing these books. Both Grandma and Grandpa are must-have books... They are delightful.--Gillian Martin Noon, librarian, Old Perlican, Newf"Canadian Materials, Vol. 22, No. 5" (10/01/1994)
