These Grandparents Day Picture Books all feature loving grandparents and celebrate the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren.
There is something extra special about the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren.
I was lucky enough to have wonderful relationships with both my maternal and paternal grandparents, as well as some of my great grandparents. Just a few months ago, I lost my grandmother, my last living grandparent. It still breaks my heart every time I remember that I won’t ever walk into her kitchen again and have her there to greet me with a loaf of fresh baked bread. I will, however, treasure every memory I have of the time I spent with my grandparents for as long as I live.
My own kids are really lucky because we live just around the corner from my parents and they get a lot of quality time together. We definitely do not take this for granted!
Because we know just how wonderful grandparents can be, we compiled a list of our favorite picture books that feature grandparents. These Grandparents Day Picture Books represent a variety of different cultures, and the many different forms that grandparent – grandchild relationships can take. All of them celebrate and honor grandparents!
These picture books make wonderful gifts for grandparents, as well as gifts from grandparents to their grandchildren. If you live far away from grandparents, you can read these aloud together for a virtual story time. You could even make a video of a grandparent reading aloud a book to send to grandchildren – a video like this is guaranteed to become a treasured family heirloom.
