Sometimes It's Grandmas and Grandpas : Not Mommies and Daddies
by Gayle Byrne and Mary Haverfield




Overview -

Sometimes It's Grandmas and Grandpas shares a child's 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 identify--over 4.5 million children in the United States are primarily cared for by a grandparent.

Poignant moments expressing the child's 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 it's not always Mommies or Daddies that care for children, and that's okay

Sometimes It's Grandmas and Grandpas is the winner of the 2012 Book Award for Best Children's Literature on Aging in the primary reader category from the The K-12 Committee of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE). It 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 It's Grandmas and Grandpas sensitively addresses a topic that has been nearly absent in the children's book market, until now.
