Grandma's Are For Giving Tickles

Summary:

Our young narrator tells us about all of the things that Grandma's offer us. And, boy, she must know everything.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The book is quite short, with simple ideas that every young child will love. It's a nice way to celebrate an anticipated visit or remember some recent one.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

It's a toss-up on what our preschooler likes most: lifting the flaps or finishing the sentences.

Parent Reaction

We originally got this book just before Grandma came to babysit overnight. Now, it's a must-read when she's here, and sometimes when our preschooler just wants a "Grandma fix."

Type of Book:
This is a lift-the-flap book.
Educational Themes:

What you learn from this book isn't what the pages say, but what they show, and the feeling you are left with when you're finished reading.
