The message here is both simple and profound: that actions and attention are love. The young reader is told at the outset that even if a grandpa doesn't say "I love you" in "the regular way," he communicates it regardless. The bearers of this message are a variety of animal grandfathers and grandchildren, including squirrels, turtles, panda bears, hippos, seals, frogs, and porcupines. All of them are engaged in togetherness activities that never tip into oversentimentality and are, quite often, humorous. For example, a senior panda teaches a cub how to wink, a frog grandpa shows a little one the disco dance moves of his youth, a zebra grandpa has his grandson try to teach him a computer game, and so forth. A brown-bear grandpa and grandkid establish a beginning-and-end continuity, the former reading to the latter "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" at bedtime. Bell's affable pencil illustrations are soft hued and warmhearted, making this a very cozy package. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
