Grandpa Green by Lane Smith

My first exposure to Lane Smith was as the illustrator of The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales and I have come to associate him with silliness.

Grandpa Green is more serious.  Grandpa Green's great-grandson takes the reader on a tour of the garden.  The hedges in the story illustrate the different stories the child knows about Grandpa. 

This book would be great for Grandparents Day or to prepare a class to interview an older person about their memories.  Students can create a list of the types of stories about Grandpa Green.  This can generate questions a student might ask an older adult.
