Alex is not happy about being sent to his grandparents’ retirement community while his parents go on a fabulous vacation. What could be worse than tagging along to Grandma’s boring bridge game or enduring the sight of Grandpa’s dentures? But as the week goes on, Alex’s desperate emails to his parents turn into stories about ice cream before dinner and stickball with Grandpa. Before he knows it, Alex has made a surprising discovery: grandparents are way cooler than he thought!

Designed for parents and caregivers, and sized to tuck into the book, the tipsheet features simple activities to engage young children in talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. Click here to download the I Wanna Go Home tipsheet.  Book description courtesy Penguin Random House; used with permission
