Someday We Will: A Book for Grandparents and Grandchildren
Grandparents and their grandchildren go through the book showing all the things they want to do together, from going swimming in the lake to reading books together. The end brings a beautiful conclusion: that someday is here and they get to be together to do all the fun things they had been looking forward to doing.
The text was sparse, which worked well. It had a beautiful flow and rhythm to the words. I felt as if I was being transported to this beautiful world that the grandparents and grandchildren are having together. The illustrations were beautiful and whimsical. The family is very well drawn, giving a true sense of who they are. I will say this book represents European-American culture. If you want diversity, you will need to look for another book.
How timely of a book for our family; we just moved away from both sets of grandparents, so this book really spoke to me and my kids. My three- and six-year-old loved the pictures of grandparents and grandchildren doing things together, thinking of the special times when they get to be with their grandparents. This is a book they loved reading over and over again.
I recommend this book for three- to eight-year-olds and for all grandparents to buy to read to their grandchildren.
