When You Visit Grandma & Grandpa
Staring out the car window at the road flashing by, a young girl explains to her new baby brother what happens When You Visit Grandma and Grandpa: you get to play hide and seek with Grandma in the summer and carve pumpkins with her in the fall. Pausing to ask, “Are we there yet?” one more time, she continues: in the winter, you get to build snow forts with Grandpa and watch his magic tricks during spring rains.
