Whether you ARE a grandparent or just happen to love one (or two), this delightful collection is a treat you should not pass up (hint: great holiday gift). Salzmann and Gelles-Cole have cooked up a winner. Its recipe for success? Start with a delicious mix of poets, each with a unique and savory take on what grandparenting is all about. Add a heaping cup of heart-string plucking. Throw in a dash of originality. Edit to perfection and serve.

Seriously, the question I asked after a few pages was, "Why didn't I think of this?" As a doting grandparent, I find that every one of these gems resonates. Next to enjoying my grandson's endless antics, this is perhaps the best part of being "Pop." Big thumbs up.
