Summary: It is hard to know who looks forward to a new baby more—an expectant parent, or an expectant grandmother. From the time the announcement is made, a grandma-to-be may be full of questions: "Aren't I too young for this? Or maybe too old? What will they call me? Will they need me, or resent my 'help'? Can I really do this?" So You're Going to Be a Grandma! offers the perfect reassurance, in the form of a delightful poem that covers all the doubts and questions, joys and successes, as a new grandma proves to be a godsend to her new grandchild and its parents:

"Baby weeps and so does mother,
Daddy isn't far behind,
Both so nervous and exhausted
This is where a grandma shines."

Summary: I Love My Grandpa!, the latest gift book from Lynn Johnston and Andie Parton, celebrates a milestone in a man's life through words and images. Like our So You're Going to be a Grandma! book, I Love My Grandpa! features illustrations by Lynn Johnston set to Andie Parton's poetry:

When trials and tribulations
Become too much for me,
I find that Grandpa's shoulder is
The perfect place to be.

I Love My Grandpa! celebrates the relationship a child has with his or her grandfather, through the eyes of grandchildren from around the globe, including the Patterson family from the classic comic strip For Better or For Worse. By way of a heartwarming poem, this charming book covers some of the thrills and spills of becoming a "grandpa"-surprised by the unexpected joy of holding a baby again-and playing a special role in the life of a growing youngster.
