Ages 3-6. Following up on their books Lots of Dads (1997) and Lots of Moms (1996), Rotner and Kelly's latest photo-essay features grandparents. The brief, affirmative text begins with the words for grandmother and grandfather in seven languages, verbally underscoring the foundation of racial diversity and multiculturalism that emerges in the clear, color photographs. Grandparents are shown by themselves and with their grandchildren. Although some are using wheelchairs or walkers to get around, others run, ride horseback, and play tennis. The brief text offers sensible comments about grandparents and their bond with their grandchildren, but teachers will particularly appreciate the variety of photographs that can lead to classroom discussions. A useful addition to many library collections. Carolyn Phelan

reS-Gr 1-Excellent color photographs show grandparents of different ages, ethnic groups, shapes, and sizes sharing happy times with grandchildren. The pictures are in a variety of sizes, attractively framed, and accompanied by one or two lines of very simple text on each page. The many settings and activities depicted in the illustrations include the beach, the playground, eating ice-cream cones, reading aloud, and hugging. A series of headshots emphasizes the relatives' individual charm, and another group of photos, their wide range of interests. The book points out that some grandparents are strong and some frail. A good choice for sharing.
