Grandpa Hugs by Laura Neutzling, is a story about the unbreakable bond between a Grandpa and his Grandchild. Join these special duos as they learn to ride a bike, read stories and say their bedtime prayers.
The story features a variety of cuddly animals that will delight little ones. Inside the pages you will find pictures of monkeys, rabbits, giraffes and other animals. The illustrations are beautiful with soft soothing colours perfect for bedtime.
There are just a few lines of text on each page, making it great for young readers. There are some difficult words, such as adventure and whiskers that may challenge some younger readers. We enjoyed the change in font, it adds some whimsy to each page. While I love the whimsy the change in font may pose a challenge to new readers, notice the difference in the letter a in sea and Grandpa.
Grandpa Hugs is a beautiful story that shares different activities that little ones can relate to. Sharing ice cream, telling jokes and reading stories. There are so many little life lessons shared in this story, that you will want to read it again and again to your little one. The giraffes teach us about sportsmanship and the tigers teach us about spending time together.
There is a christian element to the story as well, as the puppies share a special nighttime prayer. While it is not explicitly stated in the story, Grandpa Hugs is a reminder that God loves us so much that he gave us Grandpas to show us!
The book is a board book with a padded cover and rounded edges, perfect for little hands. It would make a beautiful gift for a Grandchild or even Grandpa!
The story is a beautiful story to share with your little one at bedtime or anytime at all.

TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Grandpa HugsMay 5, 2017TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a padded hard-cover boardbook with about 20 pages in it. The illustrations are all very cute and they are full of bright colors. Each set of two pages has one page fully illustrated while the other page has a short 4-line writing about a different aspect of life with Grandpa.
Here is a for-example. "Grandpa's love is strong and sure. He helps to guide my way. When I fall, he picks me up and makes it all okay." This is one page and the facing page is the picture of an adult elephant helping a small elephant learn to ride a bike.
The illustrations are excellent, the writings are short and each has a point about a specific aspect of Grandpa for his grandkids to think about. As a grandpa, I will enjoy reading this book to my grandkids. I highly recommend this little book if you have little ones who enjoy being read to. This is just the item for you.
