The sixth book about this "perfect team." -- School Library Journal

Show-and-tell was a breeze in first grade, when Gus brought to school baseball cards and a plastic rattlesnake and a super-duper flashlight. Now, in second grade, he's stumped. And wouldn't you know it, rival Ryan Mason outshines him every time. When Gus brings a picture of a beaver lodge for his natural-habitat project, Ryan brings a huge, homemade model of a beaver lodge. When Gus brings a balloon for his solid, liquid, or gas, Ryan makes gas out of vinegar and baking soda. Will Ryan's show-and-tell for Colorado history also be superior to Gus's? No way -- not when Gus decides that his show-and-tell will be Grandpa, the best representative ever of Colorado history, and the best grandpa, bar none. Once again, Claudia Mills and Catherine Stock reveal the riches of "one of the nicest intergenerational relationships" (The Horn Book).

"In this sixth book about Gus and Grandpa, all of the other students bring interesting items for second-grade show-and-tell, but Gus can't come up with any good ideas. Enthralled by his grandfather's photos and stories of the past, Gus has the perfect show-and-tel at last . . . A charming addition to the series." --School Library Journal
 "Gus and Grandpa are a great intergenerational team." --Kirkus Reviews

"The text is appropriate for newly independent readers and is nicely balanced by full- and half-page color illustrations. The positive portrayal of the multiethnic classroom is a plus, and the warm, loving relationship Gus and Grandpa share shines through. A charming addition to the series." --School Library Journal

"Stock's watercolor illustrations are plentiful and add greatly to the sympathetic tenor of the book. This realistic, intergenerational story demonstrates respect for the elderly and the importance of grandparents in a child's life." --Booklist
