NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Celebrate the special bond between grandpas and grandchildren in this delightful New York Times bestseller that puts the kids in charge! The perfect gift for Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, and any day shared with Grandpa!

Here’s everything a kid needs to know to spend a fun-filled day with grandpa! Written in a how-to style, the narrator gives important tips for “babysitting” a grandpa, including what to eat for snack (anything dipped in ketchup, ice cream topped with cookies, cookies topped with ice cream) what to do on a walk (find lizards and dandelion puffs, be on the lookout for puddles and sprinklers), and how to play with a grandpa (build a pirate cave, put on a scary play).

From the author-illustrator team behind the New York Times bestselling HOW TO…books comes a funny and heartwarming celebration of grandpas and all that they do! This is a great gift for or from a grandparent, and perfect for lap reading when Grandpa comes to visit!

The perfect gift for a child from a grandparent or from a child to a grandparent.

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books:
"The narrative is particularly effective in converting childish concern into caretaker reassurance ('When your mom and dad leave, pat your grandpa’s hand and say, "Don’t worry. They always come back" ’)...While grandpas will obviously enjoy sharing this story with their little ones (and parents will enjoy purchasing it for a Father’s Day gift for said grandpa), there is enough playfulness here to broaden the appeal to a wider audience."
