I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Time Together: Me and Grandpa by Maria Catherine, Pascal Campion
Published by Time Together on January 1st 2015
Genres: Children's Picture Book
Snapshots of a grandpa and child enjoying every day moments together. From taking a nap to reading the newspaper, these small moments are the ones that create big memories.
Cristian and I decided to read Time together: Me & Grandpa for our bedtime story the other night. He seemed to really enjoy it, it takes him a while to sit through an entire bedtime story but Time Together-Me & Grandpa really caught his attention and I would have to say it was because the illustrations were gorgeous.
The book is illustrated by Pascal Campion. The illustrations like I said are gorgeous. The book has few words but I felt like the illustrations could have told the story on its own. The people in the illustration looked genuinely happy to be in each other’s company. My son would often tell me what the people in the books were doing before I had read the story. I thought it was neat to see him so engaged in the book.
What I really liked about the book was its message. The importance of spending time with your grandparents rather it be simply reading next to each other or lay down next to each other, you are spending time with one another. I think that is a really important message. The story was very simple but carried a great message of quality time. The illustrations were great and helped really bring the story together.
Like I said, I usually struggle to get my son to sit still through an entire bedtime story but this book he sat threw and even made up his own story based on the illustrations. We would definitely recommend!
