    One thought on “I Call My Grandpa Papa”

    1. This realistic fiction book was published in 2009. A class is having a day for grandpas. Each student introduces their grandpa calling them the name they use. So there are many different versions of the name and in different languages. I liked seeing all the names people use for their grandpa especially the ones that were in a different language. I think this would be a fun book for a short lesson on diversity especially for the younger kids.

    2. I Call My Grandpa Papa is such a delightful children’s book that I cannot wait to share with my future students. I really enjoyed the rhyming of the words; it is simple, yet adds a great deal to the text. The format of the text and use of rhymes make it a perfect choice for a read-aloud. The illustrations draw the eye of the reader as they stretch across the page and use lines to clearly show movement. This book would be well-suited to read aloud for enrichment. It helps to introduce to young [...]

    6. Like the companion title, I Call My Grandma Nana, this title lifts up the usual "what I call my granddad" recitation. Teacher Miss Alexandra May introduces her Chinese grandfather, Ye-Ye, to her class, and they all chime in with their versions. Wolff's illustrations as colorful and lively as the grandfathers depicted - a Daddo with two horses, Bapa working in his woodshop, and Babu who works at the library. Delightfully multicultural.

    7. I wish this was in prose--the rhymes really grate. But the art is lovely, the idea is great and I like the back page info about names for grandpa in different languages. There is a companion book I Call My Grandma Nana

    8. multicultural but disjointed, each page describes a different grandpa, often the illustrations don't reflect the culture of the name. Still, a good introduction to the concept that families are all different, but still have commonalities.

    9. Good for multicultural units, but suffers from bad art. There is a companion book with names for Grandmas.
