The best teachers a child can have are the adults that are a part of their every day lives. Without even realizing it, the lessons come naturally and are learned so much more easily than those that are planned by professional educators.
In this story, we take part in the lessons shared by a grandfather during an outing with his grandson. Without even realizing it is happening, the boy learns the names of every day things that are a part of his life and shares a special time with his grandfather that is sure to become a memory they will both treasure.
The story is one that shows us the importance of loving someone and how much of an impact that love can have in someone’s life. It teaches us that the simplest moments are sometimes the most valuable and special. It shows us that people, rather than things are what truly matter.
Holler gives us a story of love and family bonds that is portrayed beautifully with the illustrations of Faria. The colors are eye catching and engaging and the illustrations are simple and clean. The story, told in a conversation between the grandfather and his grandson is an easy read that will surely be enjoyed by readers of a wider range of ages than the intended 4-7.
