"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant." Robert Louis Stevenson is credited with these wise words in the lovely little book, "You're One Amazing Grandpa" creatively illustrated by Lori Siebert. Done primarily in earth tones, this beautiful book features owls and seashells, leaves and mushrooms, all aesthetically pleasing to the eye, just as the various quotes and personal examples offer comfort and inspiration to the heart and mind. Those who briefly shared a memory of their grandfather remembered, universally, that he made them feel special by paying attention to them as if they were as valuable as adults. One recalled how "Grandpa often pulled my sisters and me aside to a quiet place and asked about our lives. Time and time again he would say, 'Tell me more about that.' We felt so important, because, of all the people there, we were the ones he wanted to talk to most of all."

This little book reminds us of the value older people bring to the world, by their patience and life wisdom. "Like a morning dream, life becomes more and more bright the longer we live, and the reason of everything appears more clear. What has puzzled us before seems less mysterious, and the crooked paths look straighter as we approach the end." If you are looking for the perfect gift for a beloved grandfather, look no further than "You're One Amazing Grandpa." But, anyone will enjoy perusing this beautiful book!
