Where Is Grandpa?
T. A. Barron, Chris K. Soentpiet (Illustrator)
Reading Level: 4 - 8 years
Where is Grandpa? That question haunts a young boy on the day his grandpa dies.
Grandpa has been so richly present, so many places--at the tree house, at the waterfall,
at the door ready to carve pumpkins. It's hard to imagine life without him. Yet now he
seems very far away indeed. As the boy remembers Grandpa with his family, he discovers
a surprising answer: Grandpa, perhaps, is closer to home than anyone ever realized. In this
deeply moving tale, the poetic words of T.A. Barron and the luminous illustrations of
Chris K. Soentpiet remind us all that a family's sorrow can be shared-and that even in
the greatest loss, love can still be found.
