Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 1—In the foreword, Archbishop Desmond Tutu states the overall theme of the book—grandparents receive the gift of seeing the world, once again, through the eyes of children and have a responsibility to teach their grandchildren "Love. Compassion. Integrity. Perseverance." Clear, colorful photographs show the two generations engaged in a variety of activities and invite careful observation. The pictures are clearly labeled with the name of the families' countries and highlight common threads, e.g., "listening," in Tibet, India, Mexico, and USA. Spare text defines the actions represented. The book concludes with "Five Things to Do with Your Grandparents."—Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA [Page 98].
