Grandpa Green

Illustrated almost entirely in green, Lane Smith’s Grandpa Green is an ode to a man who grew up on a farm and went to war. Narrated by a great-grandkid, this lovely story is about respect, artistry and memories.

Find some hidden story lines in the illustrations and do some interrogative activities like asking grandparents questions about their lives. Pick some of these questions and check out The Grandparent Project in Denmark.
