“He was a boy on a farm and a kid with chicken pox. He was a soldier, and a husband, and a gardener, and most of all, an artist."
Grandpa Green’s great grandson tells the tale of his great grandpa’s life by wandering through the garden reflecting on the topiaries. This is a wonderful book for explaining the fragility of memories and how important it is to know your family’s stories. With Lane Smith’s distinct illustrations, the reader feels he or she knows Grandpa Green.
