Item description for I Already Know I Love You by Billy Crystal...

Outline ReviewComedian, actor, and director Billy Crystals ode to his first grandchild will strike a chord with every expectant grandparent (and parents, too). Readers will feel the sweet anticipation building as Grandpa Crystal dreams about the babys upcoming birth. While the writing is at times awkward, the sentiment behind the text is genuine and universal, " I want to feel your heart beat as you lie upon my chest, bait your hook, fly your kite, help you study for a test." The narrator envisions peekaboo, horsey, and visits to the beach with a red-haired tot--his love virtually bubbles over. Pastel illustrations (reminiscent of the dreamy, soft-focus drawings in pregnancy books) by Elizabeth Sayles show the rugged, gray-haired gramps beaming as he partakes of the imagined pleasures to come. Crystal concludes with another awkward yet heartfelt verse:
Your mom is my daughter, and your dad is his moms son. You lived within your mommy, but now the time has come. Get ready, sweet little one-- Your life will be just great. Im going to be your grandpa, and I can hardly wait.
(All Ages) --Emilie Coulter

Product Description

Based on the author's own experience, I Already Know I Love You describes the cavalcade of feelings that comes with being a grandfather for the very first time. Beginning with anticipating the new baby's arrival, this book celebrates all the moments, great and small, that a new grandpa is ready to share. Whether it's taking a nap together or rooting for the Yankees, this grandpa just can't wait.

I Already Know I Love You  Aug 4, 2007
Billy Crystal touches the hearts of all grandparents-to-be, both male and female alike. I also gave it as a gift to my brother who was becoming a first-time grandpa. It is very special to read the book to your grandchild and to let them know how very loved they were before they were born and after too. It says it all!
Great book, wonderful pictures  Mar 6, 2007
This is a great book, I would recommend it to everyone. I love the soft written words and the art work is really sweet and touching!
My child's favorite book  Jun 13, 2006
My dad bought this book for my son's first Christmas. He's now almost two and it's his favorite book. It's already worn out, so we're purchasing another one to keep until he gets a little older. I'm also buying the sequel for my my dad's Grandfather's Day!
