From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Due to family logistics, Bo and Grandpa see each other only at every other Christmas and during the summer, which they spend on Grandpa's farm in the country. They take walks, go fishing, observe life, and have special places where they sit and talk. Grandpa answers all of Bo's questions and gives every bit of life a personalized name: "That's a praying mantis. . .but we can call him Ralph." When Bo realizes that they will be separated at this coming Christmas, the two celebrate a summer Christmas. Warmly and gently told, Grandpa and Bo is balanced by equally soft full-paged pencil drawings with yellow backgrounds throughout. Henkes' story builds slowly yet lovingly, paralleling perfectly the events of a very special summer for a young boy and his grandfather. Laura Bacher, St. Catherine's School, Richmond, Va.
