Where to buy it


This innovative series grew out of a desire to provide all children with the opportunity to see themselves within the books they are reading and to identify with the children and families they see. The diversity of today’s families is clearly captured. The simple text and engaging photographs explore the relationship between very young children and their environment.

Grandpa explores a young child’s world using photographs of a variety of children interacting with their grandpas.

Editorial Reviews

“Gloriously simple but effective . . . Very nicely done.”

Halifax Daily News

“Explores a topic familiar to most preschoolers . . . Huszar’s photographs support the concepts and have a good multicultural representation.”

School Library Journal

“Adults and young children should find much to talk about when sharing this series together. The Talk-About-Books have been designed with great care. Pages are easy to turn, illustrations are large and framed with primary colors, the few words are carefully chosen and clearly laid out. Highly recommended for children three and under.”

CM Reviews

“Children and adults will enjoy exploring the pictures and text, which invite and encourage language development.”
