One of the must-dos during fall has to be taking a cool, leisurely walk (or many walks) in nature that will allow you to soak in the beauty of the season — preferably armed with this indispensable picture book.
All parents and grandparents have experienced the internal conflict between their desire to be benevolent versus the necessity to be strict, especially when it comes to looking after a headstrong toddler who doesn’t know better, but who is starting to assert his or her independence. The key, of course, is to pick one’s battles carefully, since some are more vital than others to be won — for example, those that pertain to the safety of the child. You win some, you lose some. Old Bear and His Cub is thus a sweetly rendered story that depicts this typical parent/grandparent-child dynamic using the two titular characters.
Two at the Zoo is a cute book about a boy and his grandpa going to the zoo and counting the different animals that they see. Particularly great for kids who’re close to their grandfathers.
On the Way to Grandma’s House is a simple yet very relatable and sweet book about what a little girl sees during a car ride with her mother to visit her grandma.
