Silas’ Seven Grandparents by Anita Horrocks - OPTIONAL

Horrocks, Anita Silas’ Seven Grandparents, illustrated by Helen Flook.  PICTURE BOOK.  Orca Books, 2010.  $11.  9781459816404.

Sometimes Silas’ seven grandparents are just too much, but most of the time he remembers how much he loves them all.  When his parents are going away on a business trip, Silas needs to decide which place he wants to go stay.  But maybe Silas can come up with an even better idea!

I think that the first thing kids are going to ask is – how does Silas have seven grandparents?  But there is no explanation, so it may be a good jump off point to discuss the many different forms of family.  Silas’ final idea is cute.
