A heartwarming story of a granddaughter's love for her grandfather--a perfect gift for both Father's and Grandparents Day! Tamika loves everything about her grandpa, especially his expressive face. But one day, when Tamika watches Grandpa rehearsing for a play, she sees a different face, one she has never seen before. "Muted realistic paintings complement this story of Tamika, a young girl who grows emotionally through love . . . The carefully chosen combination of visual details and large abstract areas support the notion that love is not always clearly definable."--School Library Journal

"Poet Greenfield tells this warm family story with tenderness and grace, and Cooper makes an outstanding debut. The realistic, full-color double spreads are rich in earth tones and vibrant colors . . . A treasure to set beside [Ann Herbert] Scott's Sam."--Kirkus Reviews
