Angela Johnson and David Soman
List Price: $7.95 (Paperback - Family / Grandfather and Granddaughter / Bond - 1996)
Description: The bond between grandparent and grandchild transcends time, and sometimes transcends an adult sense of logic, reaching a deeper level of truth. In this story, a small child imagines a future when she will be old with her Grandaddy and will sit beside him in a rocking chair and talk about everything. They will go fishing, drink cool water from a jug, and play cards till the lightning bugs shine in the trees. The poignant reality that time will never allow these two to coexist at the same age is softened by the fact that they do not have to be the same age in order to share happy times. (32 pgs) Ages 4-8
