Of the many things grandparents excel at, unfailing patience and kindness top the list as two children visit their elder relatives’ idyllic farm. Writing in second person, Clements poses theoretical scenarios about how the grandparents might react as the children’s enthusiasms get the best of them: “When you want to help feed the cow but can’t lift the hay, your grandmother could say, Hold on there—that’s way too much!” But each time, the grandparents respond with assistance and understanding. Clements’s gentle, knowing writing and Alley’s friendly characterizations readily capture the joy of making memories with grandparents. Ages 4–8. Author’s agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. Illustrator’s agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management (Aug.)
