Product Description

More than 6 million children in the United States are being raised by grandparents or other relatives. Many questions about mommies and daddies can arise from children, and sometimes other children may ask them too. This book explains through warm illustrations and text that not everybody has a mommy or daddy tucking them in to bed and that it's okay because not all families are alike. Demonstrating unconditional love and support, this book is an excellent tool to teach children about other kinds of families, as well as confirm to children being raised by family members that they are loved too. 32 pages, hardcover from Abbeville Press. Recommended for ages 2-5.

Publisher's Description

Sometimes ItGÇÖs Grandmas and Grandpas shares a childGÇÖs experience living with and being cared for by grandparents through the eyes of a cheerful and delightful little girl. Uplifting watercolor illustrations give extra warmth to this caring and loving story, to which a growing number of children can identifyGÇöover 4.5 million children in the United States are primarily cared for by a grandparent.
Poignant moments expressing the childGÇÖs curiosity and questions give way to comforting and playful exchanges at home with Nonnie and Poppy. Spending the day with this grandparent-led family, we see that itGÇÖs not always Mommies or Daddies that care for children, and thatGÇÖs okay!
Sometimes ItGÇÖs Grandmas and Grandpas provides a great resource for children who seek reassurance about their particular experience. This unique book will appeal to any grandparent raising or providing long-term care for a grandchild, as well as any teacher who wants to educate children about nontraditional families. Sometimes ItGÇÖs Grandmas and Grandpas sensitively addresses a topic that has been nearly absent in the childrenGÇÖs book market, until now.
SPECIAL UPDATE: Sometimes It's Grandmas and Grandpas is the winner of the 2012 Book Award for Best ChildrenGÇÖs Literature on Aging in the primary reader category from the The K-12 Committee of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE)
