"For Better or For Worse by Lynn Johnston packs more drama, laughter, and real life into one strip than many TV sitcoms can manage in a season."Some people joke that the best part about being a parent is that eventually you get to be a grandparent. When a man is on the brink of this exciting time, the anticipation of being able to pass on family history and traditions, and relive precious memories of years gone by, sets in.
I Love My Grandpa celebrates the relationship a child has with his or her grandfather through the eyes of grandchildren from around the globe, including the Patterson family from the classic comic strip For Better or For Worse. By way of a heartwarming poem, this charming book covers some of the thrills and spills of becoming a "grandpa"-surprised by the unexpected joy of holding a baby again-and playing a special role in the life of a growing youngster.
I Love My Grandpa radiates the universal love of a grandchild and makes an ideal gift for any expectant or new grandfather.
