Editorial Reviews

"The quiet and philosophical tone of the book make it suited for children aged seven and up ... For a child who is grieving or needs to be prepared for the death of a beloved grandparent, this book may help."

— The Observer

"Julie Lawson has given us another perfect pearl in this deceptively simple story of a young girl and her grandfather. This story actually strings a number of pearls together to create a book both children and adults will treasure. Karen, the story's narrator, receives many gifts from her grandfather ... In the beauty of Lawson's prose, we receive the gifts as well."

— CBRA

"My Grandfather Loved the Stars will be a welcome addition to both school and public libraries. It is a relatively sophisticated picture book best suited for school-age children and for nostalgic adults remembering the power of family storytelling and its place in the cycle of our lives."

— bcla reporter
