When I read Arlene Uslander's book, That's What Grandparents Are For, I thought of my husband's tales of his Grandmother Pearl and all the ways she made life, learning, and unconditional love real for him in her sanctuary of peppermint candy and stories that he never tired of hearing.  One lazy afternoon so long ago, Pearl asked him to promise that he would never forget her, like that was possible. For all the boys and girls who had protectors and confidantes in their grandparents; for all the grandparents who want to tell their  grandchildren just how precious they were and are, Arlene has written that love letter for you in this beautifully illustrated book of verse celebrating the very special bond between grandparents and grandchildren. Send it to the one you love, and keep the promise to never forget.

Arlene Uslander has written a great book, which would make an ideal gift. It is entitled That's What Grandparents Are For. What a happy, sunny feel good book, which captures with its drawings and words, the true essence of grandparenthood.

What a delightful book! The author and illustrator have combined their talents to create a truly enjoyable story. I read this book a few times and found it to be heartwarming and creatively written to capture the love that exists between grandparents and their grandchildren. The verses were both humorous and touching; the illustrations were beautiful. I decided to put this book to the real test. Since I am the grandmother of three, all under the age of six, I knew I could assemble a captive audience. It took some time to get through the first read with the grandkids. They kept giggling and interrupting to reminisce about the times they had done similar things in the book with their grandpa and me. By the fifth time they asked me to reread the story, I knew we had found a new favorite. They loved the book and I loved the bonding moments we were sharing by reading it. That alone would guarantee my hightest recommendation. That's What Grandparents Are For is a wonderful new addition on my bookshelf and I am sure it will be read over and over again.

A friend of mine had this book and after looking it over I had to buy one for a child that I know. I like the thoughts and situations of love and caring that are illustrated throughout the entire book. V Excellent.

What an absolutely great book. I bought it for my grandson and we both really enjoy it a lot. In fact, he begs me to read it to him every time he comes over. I love this book.

Delightful, charming, and clever - is what I call Arlene Uslander¿s new book 'That¿s What Grandparents Are For.' This wonderfully insightful book is a gift not only to children (of many ages) but a book that a child can share with a grandparent as they both sit together in an overstuffed chair sharing the very touching verses. Also, the colorful illustrations by Freddie Levin, are a fine compliment to the words in this publication and I am certain this book will invite a child to have Grandmother or Grandfather read to them very often.
