About This Book

"A small child imagines a future when he will be old with his Granddaddy and will sit beside him in a rocking chair and talk about everything... The poignant reality that time will never allow these two to coexist at the same age is softened by the fact that they do not have to be the same age in order to share happy times... The African American child and grandfather are...recognizable to anyone who has ever shared the bond of family love across generations." — School Library Journal, starred review
