"... exploring aging, memory, and the bonds of family history and love."

Grandpa Green
by Lane Smith
Kids Wings Top Flight Book
2012 Caldecott Honor Book

What do you know about your Grandpa?

Where he was born?

What was life like when he was your age?

What were some things that he did?

Where did he meet Grandma?

Grandpa Green could no longer tell his grandson the answers to his questions, but he could show him. Grandpa Green made a fanciful garden with trees and shrubs the shapes of things from his past:

A boy-shaped berry tree, decorated with red berries. Chicken pox.

A paratrooper and airplane tree. The war.

A beautiful waitress shrub. His future wife.

The garden remembers Grandpa.

And, on the last page, a special shrub. Can you guess what it is?

Grandpa Green was named a 2012 Caldecott Honor Book to encourage you to never forget. It provides a special family visit into the world of a special grandpa who is remembered through is fanciful garden that shares its memories in bushes and trees shaped like his past.
