As we head into the holiday, we want to share family love with two intergenerational titles showing the special relationship between a Grandfather and Grandson.
The first is TIme for Bed, old House written by Janet Costa Bates and illustrated by AG Ford. This story shares how Grandpop eases Isaac's bedtime fears. Grandpop puts the old house to sleep and explains away the bedtime noises that give Isaac some concern.
The Remember Balloons written by Jessie Oliveros and illustrated by Dana Wulfekotte, is a story of James who struggles with his Grandpa's memory loss. The baloons hold their special memories. James learns to carry on the memories and ballons they both share.
