Books for Grandparents' Day

I love that we have a day to celebrate Grandparents! This year I used some read-alouds to go along with that theme and wanted to share them with you guys.

Grandpa Green is a book about the life of a grandfather told in the shrubs he sculpts. The grandfather is losing his memories but they will always be remembered by his plants.

This doubles as a good story about part/whole as well. The red dress ends up being repurposed in many ways.

This is just a sweet story! The boy talks about all the things he will do with his grandfather as they get old together. It begins with them in rocking chairs and ends the same way.

One of my all-time favorite stories! What is a memory? This book tackles that question in a beautiful way. Not exactly his grandparents (a nursing home next door) but surrogate grandparents, I'm sure.

A neat story about dual language families and ways they can always communicate with each other.
