The Gift: Grandpa Loves You by Helen Foster James

BE BRAVE AND TAKE CHANCES,
HAVE FUN AND ENJOY
EACH MOMENT, MY LOVE,
MY PRIDE AND MY JOY.

If "a child is a gift you give yourself," the child of your child is an even greater gift for a grandparent.

In Helen Foster James' Grandpa Loves You (Sleeping Bear Press), a grandfather greets his "Honey, Grandbunny" with love and promises of all the wonderful things they will do together--roaming the woods, flying kites, fixing things, sharing bedtime hugs, and best of all, digging, as Grandpa shows Bunny how to dig an awesome burrow!

In this companion book to her earlier hit, Grandma Loves You!, the youngest is welcomes into the family circle with the anticipation of all the times together that are to come. Artist Petra Brown adds soft-toned illustrations of the two cottontails, a gray, bushy-browed Grandpa Rabbit, and small, but big-eared Baby Bunny.  The two stay busy, enjoying exploring the big world together, as Grandpa gives him the best gift of all--love and joy in his life. Author James includes a special page at the back of the book for a real grandfather to add his promises of joys to come to the book for his own grandson, making this one just right to give, in lieu of a Fathers Day card, to loving granddads to read to their young ones.
