When Grandpa Gets Going is an adorable book that teaches kids about rhyming. It’s a story about all the things Grandpa does with his grandchildren when they are over. Grandpa has lots of fun including: reading bedtime stories, eating ice cream, going to the park, and picking apples.
This is so, so sweet and makes me reminisce back to my childhood. The cover is way too cute and the pictures inside are as well. Although it is a small book, some pages actually have quite a few words; so I think it would be fun to read it to your child vs them reading it to themselves (depending on the age, of course).
The main critique I have (which kept this from being a 5 star book) comes from the inner Grammar Nazi in me. Haha! I saw a few punctuation errors throughout, and I just couldn’t help but notice them. The ending was a little sad, too. Otherwise, I loved it!
