Grandpa's Face By: Eloise Greenfield and Illustrations By: Floyd Cooper
This book is a special book for all ages, whether you're a small child or a grown adult, you will love this book. The book is about a young girl named Tamika and her loving grandfather. Tamika and her grandpa love each other very much, and they spend tons of time together. They would go on "talk-walks" and laugh together all the time. Since Grandpa is an actor she attends all his plays with her family and loves watching his different facial expressions. One day as she goes into his room to ask him to tell her a story, she she's him practicing for another play with his script open and looking in the mirror. He says a couple a lines and then makes a face Tamika has never seen before. His face looks angry and like it could never love. At dinner time Tamika tries to do all the things that would make grandpa angry to see if he would do that awful face. She even spills her drink all over him! Grandpa decides it is time for a talk. This book is written in second-person. "Sometimes Tamika and Grandpa would go out together, just the two of them." This book is good for ages 8 and up. But that's just pretending Tamika." It can be read to younger children too. There are four main characters mentioned in this book. "Tamika loved her Grandpa" and "They would leave Daddy and Mommy at home and go for a walk." The characters were Tamika, Grandpa, Daddy, and Mommy. This book is great to read! Kids and adults alike will enjoy this wonderful story. You have to read this magnificent book!
Outstanding Storytelling for Children Jun 30, 2000
This is a very poignant tale of which all children can relate.
Tamika appears to be around six years of age. That is a time when children are so impressionable. That which is trivial to an adult is of great importance to child; therefore, the story has a relevancy for all who care about and deal with children.
Tamika reminds me so much of my niece who really adores her grandfather, my dad. As I turned the pages, reading the text and admiring the beautiful illustrations, I could only imagine how my niece would react to the unfolding events. This is a sign that the book can have meaning for all.
Miss Greenfield has used clear vocabulary that successfully tells her story to the young reader.
