    Personal reaction I really liked this book I was able to relate to it and I m sure that students would be able to as well I would read this book to second or third graders because I think some of the concepts are a little deeper than what grades younger are privy to I noticed that the author used figurative language when describing characters For example, the first time we are introduced to the little girl s grandpa, he is described his arms and legs as skinny as pick up sticks, and described his hair looking like cotton candy snow I think the use of figurative language helps the readers to see, clearly, what exactly the author is wanting us to see The vocabulary is pretty basic but what it lacks in word choice, it makes up for in figurative language The illustrations are also bright and colorful and fill both pages I think that the illustrations help put to life the way the figurative language described the grandpa and they also did a good job of showing the story in detail I would read this book for enjoyment, really It s a good story to show the bond of family and how family is always important.

    I bought this for my kids, because a quality kids book is to be purchased and treasured and there are never enough of them I love that the loss is not a manufactured Disney esque conflict to be fixed It is a real life loss that can never be fixed but can be integrated I love that it is about connection of a girl to her grandpa Just as black lives matter does not imply that white lives don t, stories of dads and grandpas don t imply moms and grandmas are unimportant And just like that, the stories of dads and grandpas need to be told, because they do matter You will find here all the power and beauty of Smith s poetry publications, distilled into a beautiful story for kids.

    I enjoyed this book, it was a very touching story about a girl and her grandfather Although the grandfather ends up passing away, it is an endearing story, and students who have experienced loss could really relate I would use this book in a 2nd grade classroom when talking about families or losing a loved one I am using this book for a lesson plan on dynamic and static characters in a second grade classroom.
