LUCKY PENNIES AND HOT CHOCOLATE by Carol Diggory Shields
He loves watching the big machines dig in the construction site, finding lucky pennies on the sidewalk, and picking out all of the weird, icky foods at dinner. And now his favorite person is coming for a visit to do it all with him! But who is speaking–grandfather or grandson? This is a sweet story about the commonalities between all people–young and old. It would work well for a story time about grandparents and families. Or pair it with books like Meg Fox’s Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge for a theme of meaningful inter-generational relationships.
