Grandpas come in lots of forms – Gramps, Opa or Poppy. But there’s only one like you, impossible to copy! From grandads who fill our days with laughter, to nonnos who teach us gardening and grandpops who take us camping – and share a cup of cocoa after –  each is special in his own way. There’s Only One Grandpa Like You is a warm, joyful and energetic tribute to grandfathers and their place in our hearts.

This colourful picture book with watercolour illustrations tells the reader about all the different types of grandpas you can have – from the planter of trees and tales to knowing every fact about sport. But a repeated message is ‘there is only one grandpa like you’.

The book was read to group of 6 year olds and they loved the rhyming language, pretty illustrations with so many animals painted and that It is recommended  for 3 -7 year olds.
