Publisher Comments:

Celebrate the magic of youth and the wisdom of age with The Little Big Book for Grandfathers. Brimming with stories, poetry, songs, activities, and recipes, and designed with timeless vintage illustrations, The Little Big Book for Grandfathers will include: Literary Excerpts: Nine excerpts that include grandfathers in literature (Heidi and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and characters who instruct and teach life lessons (the wizard in The Wizard of Oz, Baloo in The Jungle Book, the fox in The Little Prince). Legendary Tales: Nine stories of adventurers from Americas past, including Daniel Boone, Paul Bunyan, and Calamity Jane. Fairy Tales and Fables: Children will enjoy hearing their favorite fairy tales retold in short verse and will learn more about their favorite stories (why the cow jumped over the moon and why there were four and 20 blackbirds in a pie). Also included are 10 Aesops Fables filled with their gentle humor and lessons of life. Poems: Eighteen poems on subjects such as the passage of time and enjoyment of life by great poets including Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, William Wordsworth, Shel Silverstein, and more. Activities: Eighteen fun-filled activities, including things to do outdoors (camping, reading the sky), things to make (tiny boats, noisemakers), and things to test the brain (toothpick teasers and parlor tricks). Songs: Twelve old-time favorites that continue to delight such as "Buffalo Gals," "Keep on the Sunny Side," and "Home of the Range." Grandfather Wisdoms: A bird had is worth two in the bush. A clean conscience makes a soft pillow. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Cleanliness is next to godliness. Recipes: Over 20 recipes to cook up, including kitchen-sink pizzas, old-fashioned thirst quenchers, and one-dish wonders. Wisdom, jokes, and much, much more!
