A heartwarming story of a granddaughter's love for her grandfather—a perfect gift for both Father's and Grandparents Day!
Tamika loves everything about her grandpa, especially his expressive face. But one day, when Tamika watches Grandpa rehearsing for a play, she sees a different face, one she has never seen before.
“Muted realistic paintings complement this story of Tamika, a young girl who grows emotionally through love . . . The carefully chosen combination of visual details and large abstract areas support the notion that love is not always clearly definable.”—School Library Journal
“Poet Greenfield tells this warm family story with tenderness and grace, and Cooper makes an outstanding debut. The realistic, full-color double spreads are rich in earth tones and vibrant colors . . . A treasure to set beside [Ann Herbert] Scott’s Sam.”—Kirkus Reviews
