Description

A heartwarming story about lifelong love and loss told from the perspective of a grandfather’s favorite chair.

Grampy’s chair sits in the middle of his living room and always keeps an eye on My Love. The Chair is the perfect spot for My Love to learn to read, to play games with her friends, and The Chair is always extra soft when My Love is sick. As My Love grows up, The Chair sees Grampy grow older and My Love must care for him. One day Grampy is gone, and The Chair is moved to a space with only a few things it recognizes (and a few spiders too). Will it see My Love again?

In this poignant story inspired by her own grandfather and his chair, Rebecca Thomas invites readers of all ages to explore love, grief, and the important moments in life that take place in our favorite spots. With lively illustrations from Coco A. Lynge and featuring a heartfelt author’s note, Grampy's Chair takes the readers through loss, and how we can be found again by the ones we love.

I was fascinated by this title. My Papa’s chair was very special to me and it often comforted me after he passed. For me, this story was vibrant and completely relatable. The story is told from the chair’s perspective. It follows the circle of life. I loved every page of it and it brought back many warm memories. Great drawings. I was blessed with a free ARC, and I’m voluntarily leaving my review. I would purchase for my home library. Highly recommend.

My kids absolutely adored this book! My dad reads them books in his special chair, and so they really connected with this book: the storyline was beautiful. Wonderful read!
