“The New knows softness. The Old knows life can be hard. The New holds on. The Old is learning to let go.” First-time author Benjamin Fox uses simple words to explore the vastly deep themes of life and love as a new baby and an old grandfather prepare to meet each other for the first time. Illustrated by award-winning and nationally recognized artist Elizabeth Robbins, The Great and the Grand celebrates the beautiful balance of age and youth, experience and innocence, the Old and the New.
