Tea with Grandpa Kindle Edition
Spending time with Grandpa is always fun.
Singling, laughing, eating, and playing.
And when it's time to say goodbye,
It won't be for long because
He's never too far away to have tea.
In this sweetly simple, rhyming picture book by acclaimed author/artist Barney Saltzberg, a little girl tells us about her daily tea ritual with her grandfather where they sing and laugh and clink their teacups with the help of their computers and a video chat.

About the Author
“Simply charming!” ―School Library Journal
“Mischievous pet antics add a dash of fun, but the focus is on the sweet bond between these two family members separated by distance.” ―Publishers Weekly
“The welcome modern twist to Saltzberg's intergenerational story is sweetly affirming for today's far-flung families.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“The timelessness of a tea party goes digital when a young girl and her grandfather find a creative way to connect despite being separated by distance . . . This kind of relationship is one many kids can relate to, and the book is a great reminder that even though their grandparents may be far away, they are always close enough for tea.” ―Booklist

I thought it was cute. When I got the book and (here comes a spoiler!) and saw that the whole “tea party” was virtual – meaning the little girl and her grandpa were Skyping or doing a Google hangout or something similar, I thought the idea for the book was brilliant! You don’t know until the end that it’s all over the computer -very cool. There are a lot of kids who don’t live close to their grandparents and I think a lot of kids and parents can relate to this story.The rhyme in the book is wonderful and the soft illustrations go very well with the story.
It has a little surprise ending.
I love this book by Mr. Saltzberg, along with his Beautiful Oops! book too~ 😊
