Magical. The illustrations are pure perfection.

Each page shows a child with their unique grandfather, creating a special memory with each other.

The illustrator is definitely someone to watch for. Each picture is mesmerizing to me because there is something reminiscent and real in the pictures. Many seem to capture some subtle familiar movement or expression. Let's see if I can explain...

The look between a girl and her grandfather as they fish is alive with that special gleam of glee.

I received a copy from author/publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. The following review is my own and will not be affected by this.

Cristian and I decided to read Time together for our bedtime story the other night. He seemed to really enjoy it, it takes him a while to sit through an entire bedtime story but Time Together-Me & Grandpa really caught his attention and I would have to say it was because the illustrations were gorgeous.

The book is illustrated by Pascal Campion. The illu

a simple yet delightful little book of just some of the things you can do with grandpa.

Sometimes simple is just the best. This adorable book documents precious moments spent with Grandpa. Quality time, abounding love, and special relationships are portrayed in scenarios of fishing, gardening, fixing, kite flying, building, grilling, late night snacking, star gazing and many, many more.

The illustrator captures the tenderness of these moments by giving the characters direct eye contact, abundant smile-sharing, close, snuggly body contact and an overall feeling of contentment and hap

Time Together: Me & Grandpa features illustrations of children enjoying reading, building, and playing with their grandfathers. It is complemented by minimal text (usually 3-5 words for each illustration).

While I LOVE the theme that bonding with family is important and found a few of the illustrations really impressive, I can't exactly get behind the choice to use minimal text. First of all, I thought it may be good for ch

Synopsis: "Snapshots of a grandpa and child enjoying every day moments together. From taking a nap to reading the newspaper, these small moments are the ones that create big memories."

My Review: This was a NetGalley request for an honest review. I was instantly captured by the cover of this book, it made me instantly think about my own grandpa and what I want my son to have with his grandfathers. The book continued in the same fashion, featuring children and grandpas of all races sharing those s

The pictures are on two page spreads and show a grandpa and child engaged in a variety of lovely activities. They are delightful and I love the fact that so many diverse characters are used to represent the Grandpa and child. The text is usually limited to just three or four words on each pair of pages - but they aren’t always easy to read words (e.g. thoughtful) so I presume this is designed for an adult to read with a child, rather than for independent reading. They do give a snapshot of ...more

Time together: Me and Grandpa by Maria Chatherine is mostly a collection of snapshot. Scenes depicting grandfathers and their grandchildren doing fun activities together. If you give this book to a kid, they might use it as inspiration when it comes to planning the next outing with grandpa.

What I enjoyed most of the book where the illustrations by Pascal Campion, which are simple and yet filled with details. What I also liked a lot the diversity of people that appear on each illustration. In my

Time Together: Me and Grandpa is all about the every day moments together that showcase the love between family. Each page of the book comprises of a scene and a short label to describe what is happening. The language in the book is incredibly simple, perfect for preschool and Kindergarten children learning to read. However I have somewhat mixed feelings about the book, it felt a little bit boring to me. It is not actually a story, just a bunch
While the milestones in one's life are certainly important, when it comes to relationships, it's the little ones that count. Each of the illustrations shows a grandfather and his offspring engaging in simple pleasures such as fishing, reading together, working in the garden, repairing a car, sharing a late night snack or even lying in the backyard, staring up at the star-filled sky. The sentiments can be generalized from the simple text and the poignant illustrations, making this a good title to ...more

This was a charming little book illustrating the good times kids spend with their grandpas: flying kites, going fishing, reading the newspaper...They did a wonderful job of illustrating a wide variety of activities so there's definitely something for everyone! They also did a wonderful job of mixing up the children between boys and girls - and not necessarily pairing them with gender-biased activities (a girl is going fishing, a girl is playing soccer, etc.) I loved the illustrations and the few ...more

CBZ Book Review:

A relationship between Grandparent and child is very important. In this case it's a relationship with Grandpa to be exact. Small minuscule moments are big moments in a child's life. Those few minutes of reading a book, teaching a child to fish or just spending special time together is how you create memories and unique bonds. Bonds that neither time or distance can erase.

This precious book reminds us of those bonds. Shared with beautiful art work and few words,Time Together:Me a

This is a wonderful picture book showing the things that a child can do with a grandpa. I think it is a good book for a Grandpa to give to a Grandchild and vice versa, giving ideas for things they can do together. Then they should do it, and refer to it also being in the book. Great illustrations as well. Reviewed for NetGalley and Capstone Young Readers.

Super cute picture book with just a few words on each page. Each page depicts a young child doing things with their grandpa.
First page text is "Morning reading time" it then shows grandpa in a chair reading a paper with a boy on the floor at his feet reading too.

The story was fine, and the illustrations were good too, but only a few of the illustrations really stood out to me as exceptional. Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing a free e-galley of this book.

Sweet illustrations and simple text make a memory book of the simple, oh so special moments between child and grandparent.

Cortito, muy cortito. Me ha puesto un poco triste porque mi abuelo falleció hace menos de un año.
Este tipo de libros me gusta, casi no hay texto pero aún así transmite algo.

Elegantly simple. 4 1/2 stars...bumping it down a half star because sometimes the illustrations weren't quite what I would have loved.
