Reviews - What do customers think about Grandpa and Bo?

gentle story of friendship and family  Oct 13, 2005
You know you've got it good when you can be friends with your relatives! Bo has a very special relationship with his Grandpa -- they don't see each other often, but when they do it's very high quality time. Playing ball, taking walks, gardening, cooking, listening to records, weaving baskets, carving statues out of a bar of soap... Bo's summer spent with his Grandpa is full of perfect childhood moments. And Grandpa has just the right attitude towards life. Every animal and tree is his friend and they give them all names. Bo's dearest wish is to see a shooting star before the summer ends. And they do, on the very last night. The illustrations are warm and perfectly match the tone of the book. One of Kevin Henkes' earlier books (copyright 1986), you can definitely see him emerging as a strong writing talent. This is a story to treasure about the love between grandparent and child.
A delightful book for young early readers  Jun 8, 2002
Gently written and charmingly illustrated by Kevin Henkes, Grandpa & Bo is a delightful book for young early readers. Warm, black-and-white sketches showing the love and friendship shared between a young boy and his grandfather enjoying the simple beauty of nature and the turning of the seasons highlight this gentle, wonderful, highly recommended picturebook story.
