Todd Parr

I don't know what it is about Todd Parr's sweet, simple, funny books, but my family and I love them.

My daughter received THE FEEL GOOD BOOK as a gift several years ago, and it has remained one of our favorites--so much so that the binding is cracked, the pages torn . . . we all have a few of those books on our shelves, the ones bearing the scars of affection.

Most recently, we got our hands on THE GRANDMA BOOK, and once again Todd has done it again. His illustrations are colorful, childlike and fun in a Keith Haring kind of way. His message is clear--there are lots of cool grandmas in the world and they are all awesome. You can't help smiling and giggling throughout the story. Check out his website--I dare you not to smile!

If you need a little "happy" in your day, pick up a copy of THE GRANDMA BOOK (or any other book by Todd Parr--we like THE PEACE BOOK, too).

Check out what the other Bookanistas are up to today, and for those of you at ALA in New Orleans, have a blast!!

  1. Aw, I'll have to pick these up! I need to start reading to Liv. She's been screaming at night so we haven't gotten there yet, but maybe story time can be during the day!
