Grandfather and I never hurry. We walk along and walk along and stop... and look... just as long as we like.
Mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters are always in a hurry — and they always want you to hurry, too. Even things hurry — cars and buses, trains and boats — and they make noises that can sometimes frighten even this brave little boy. That’s why it’s so nice to spend time with Grandfather. He understands the importance of walking in nature and taking time to see what’s out there.
Together with its companion volume, Grandmother and I, this touching portrayal of the loving relationship between grandfather and grandson has been freshly illustrated by an internationally acclaimed artist. Both books are a joy to read and share, and are ideal for incorporation into units on family.
