Book Review: Grandpa's Stories - A Book of Remembering

Author: Joseph Coelho 
Illustrator: Allison Colpoys

From the Book Jacket: There's nothing more special than spending time with Grandpa...exploring fields and parks, fixing up old toys, and -- best of all -- listening to Grandpa's stories. But, this year, a loving granddaughter needs to say goodbye to her favorite relative. How will she keep Grandpa's memory alive when he is no longer there? An honest and poetic depiction of loss, Grandpa's stories shows how losing a loved one can be an invitation to celebrate life. 

Why It's On My Bookshelf: This was a nice book to share with our daughter. She talks a lot about her great grandma who is no longer with us and it allowed her to see grief through another child's eyes. Kids grieve differently than adults and I think having resources around to help ease their sadness can bring comfort. Glad I picked this one up!
