Review #1434 Grandpa Green by Lane Smith
Grandpa Green by Lane Smith
Rating: Four stars (out of four)
First off, I was so, so THRILLED this won a Caldecott Honor! It definitely deserved it! I was first introduced to this story at the ALA conference and from the moment I read it I realized it was going to be a success. The story was sweet and I can see it appealing to a variety of ages. The illustrations are fantastic and perfectly suite the story! I also love how the greenery helps tell the story. I can see myself coming to this book again and again. Definitely recommend - go out and buy it!
