randfathers don't always say '
I love you!
' in the regular way. That would be too simple and predictable. No, grandfathers have special ways of letting their grandchildren know how much they love them. This picture book documents some of those unusual ways grandfathers show that they care.
or example, a grandfather might just mess up your hair to let you know he loves you. Or he might wink at you or buy you a double-scoop ice-cream cone (he'll help you eat it too!)
caring grandfather will let you help weed and water the garden and he'll also show you how to throw a '
super-duper yellow zonker sinker ball
'. Not only will he show you the pitch, but he will also strike out when you throw it!
here are many unusual ways that grandfathers tell their grandchildren how much they love them but '
most of all, a grandpa says "I love you" just by being your grandpa!
nce you page through this book you'll realize that, if you are a grandfather, this is a picture book you'll have to share with the little, special person in your life. You may wish to buy a copy for every grandchild you have or just keep one copy at home for when your grandchildren visit.
