This is a really nice book. For parents out there to write a negative review because of how this grandmother and grandson speak is, to my mind, quite ridiculous. Aren't we, as parents, supposed to raise children to become aware of others in their world who may not look exactly like them? Who may not talk exactly like them? Who may not live exactly like them? This book does a really nice job of presenting a loving family living in the city of San Francisco and also has a very powerful lesson about giving back. What more could a father (me) or mother ask for in terms of an appropriate and loving book for their pre-schooler? I found it not only a charming story but a great vehicle for opening some doors into some important discussions. My daughter loves it and I couldn't recommend it enough.
