This is such a meaningful and unique tale of family connections and family history. I love the idea of this young boy learning about his Great Grandpa Green’s life: military service, meeting Grandma Green, hobbies and interests. What Grandpa Green has done to make it easier to learn about his life is also very neat. The interplay of the story and illustrations develops subtly until becoming clear in a moment of gorgeous illustration.
