Our Grandparents: A Global Album is a 32-page photo essay published by Charlesbridge Publishing about the intergenerational love between grandparents and their grandchildren around the world. The book opens with Desmond Tutu's tribute to the role of grandparents in the lives of their grandchildren throughout the world. The next page introduces toddlers and preschool children to the many ways of saying grandmother and grandfather. Each double page spread shows colour photographs of grandparents interacting with their grandchildren through play, exploration, storytelling, listening, teaching, learning, celebrating, sharing, caring, and loving. The contemporary cultures around the world are showcased. Grandparents are shown wearing traditional clothing and others wear everyday contemporary clothing. One Native American grandfather is shown holding a dream catcher as he talks with his granddaughter. Each colour images has a simple declarative sentence that encompasses the meaning of this intergenerational bond within families. The last two pages suggest activities grandparents and their grandchildren can do together. These include planning an adventure, play together, celebrate the past, record memories, and learn about your family. Recommended.
