Grandpa Green by Lane Smith

The author of It’s A Book, Lane Smith, has a new children’s picture book that you can read aloud and take at face value for its story of great grandpa who likes to create topiaries – Grandpa Green.  Or you can find Smith’s history of the old man who “grew up on a farm…before computers or cell phones or television…” another of his commentaries on what is important – and a caution not to forget it.

Lane’s geometric illustrations beg for discussion and exploration when read to a small child – the last two fold out pages are the best.

A book for children with an adult message.
