My Thoughts

Baby Thomas wants Grandpa to take him for a stroll outdoors.  First he must wake up Grandpa from napping. So Grandma comes up with a plan.  Are you curious as to how they got Grandpa to wake from his nap?

Grandpa was not to eager to go for a walk, he thought it was to hot and the flowers made him sneeze.  Baby Thomas did not notice the heat of the Sun in fact he told the Sun, flowers, birds and every other living thing he past, "GOOD MORNING!" and they greeted him back with happy smiles and salutations. But they also noticed how grumpy Grandpa was being on their walk.  

If you were to ask me I would say Grandpa didn't get a long enough nap.  

This darling story of Baby Thomas and Grandpa was like I was taking a stroll along with them.  The author
must have pulled some of this story from a family experience.  With her very creative imagination she must have been very tuned into actions and reactions of Baby Thomas. Then there was Grandpa who was very vocal and animated so she undoubtedly knew exactly what to write about Grandpa. Too funny!

This book is a must read!

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from the author for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  This review is my honest opinion.
