  • Interest Level: Preschool

A warm and comforting board book about the bond between grandfather and child, from award-winning author and illustrator.

A small hand in a big one, big boots and little, some food from the garden, storytime and a nap to finish. Through powerful illustrations and simple words, Pops captures a very special time with a child and their grandfather as they share a day of easy moments together.

A warm story to share with babies, toddlers and preschoolers showing a multigenerational and multi-ethnic family relationship. With a gender neutral child and inclusive illustrations, Pops is a starting point for conversation with young children. The simplicity of the words and pictures lets readers build their own stories about their visit to a loved member of the family.
