The re-issue of this strong-selling gift book (a companion to 41 Uses for a Grandma) will get a smile of recognition from both grandfathers and grandkids. From dance partner to handyman, the fun and functions of grandfathers are inventively explored. Some of the uses are straightforward, like the arms-circled-out-in-front "ball hoop." Other entries, such as grandpas' "uses" as entertainment center, butler, and mediator, supply kids with a fresh perspective. At the end, it all adds up to grandpa being a wonderful friend.
Harriet Ziefert often writes about grandparents, as it evokes both her fond memories of her own grandparents and her present experience as a grandmother of four.
Amanda Haley holds a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She lives in Ohio with her husband and their golden retriever, Sally.
