This companion to the immensely likable What Mommies Do Best/ What Daddies Do Best is another two-in-one book: after finishing "What Grandmas Do Best," readers can flip the book over to find "What Grandpas Do Best."
Again, Numeroff's straightforward text is identical for both segments (both grandmas and grandpas can "play hide-and-seek, make you a hat, and take you for a walk").
The fun lies in Munsinger's magnificently anthropomorphized animals, and the way each grandparent puts his or her spin on the words: Grandma Cat knits her grandchildren a lovely snow hat, while Grandpa Guinea Pig fashions a chapeau out of newspapers, tape and glue.
Many kinds of loving families appear throughout the story; elephants, dogs, monkeys, and frogs all share quality time with their loving relatives. Children will enjoy noticing the different ways to dance, have a picnic, or make a hat... in this charming introduction to the special times shared with grandparents.
