Everyone Was Once a Child

Tamar Bergman
AGE: 4-6

It`s hard for Nimrod to wait until Grandpa is free to play with him, and Grandpa knows it. How does he know? Well, he was once a child too. Grandpa knows everything: he knows when something hurts, when Nimrod is scared of the dark, why he cries and when it`s time to go to sleep. Nimrod`s grandfather will be familiar to all children who have a special relationship with their grandparents. This book recognizes that grandparents have time and energy for toddlers, while parents are often busy or tired out. With great subtlety, Tamar Bergman draws out emotions that small children often find hard to handle.
