Where Is Grandpa?
T. A. Barron, Chris K. Soentpiet (Illustrator)


Reading Level: 4 - 8 years

Where is Grandpa? That question haunts a young boy on the day his grandpa dies. Grandpa has been so richly present, so many places--at the tree house, at the waterfall, at the door ready to carve pumpkins. It's hard to imagine life without him. Yet now he seems very far away indeed. As the boy remembers Grandpa with his family, he discovers a surprising answer: Grandpa, perhaps, is closer to home than anyone ever realized. In this deeply moving tale, the poetic words of T.A. Barron and the luminous illustrations of Chris K. Soentpiet remind us all that a family's sorrow can be shared-and that even in the greatest loss, love can still be found.
