Some brief overview of this book

Featuring Todd Parrs signature colorful and kid-friendly illustrations, The Grandma Book portrays the different ways grandmothers show their grandchildren love, from offering advice and babysitting to making things and giving lots of kisses.

s and paintings were considered childish and simplistic. He even failed his high school art course for not meeting class standards. As a result, for many years he lacked the self-confidence to pursue his dreams. Then, when he finally mustered the resolve to begin painting in earnest, his work was turned down by dozens of galleries. Yet, in spite of these roadblocks, Parr persisted. He arranged a small showing of his paintings at Wolfgang Pucks San Francisco restaurant Postrio. A buyer for Macys West saw his canvases and encouraged him to design a line of merchandise for the store. Then, in 1998, Parrs bold, colorful style caught the eye of Little Brown agent Megan Tingley, who approached him to write childrens books. The rest, as they say, is publishing history. Unlike other childrens authors, Parr is not a traditional storyteller; yet his books—with their positive, reassuring messages about acceptance, self-confidence, and diversity—have become enormously popular. In bestsellers like The Family Book, We Belong Together and Its Okay to Be Different, he encourage preschoolers to be themselves, to express their feelings, and to celebrate what makes each of them unique. But it is his artwork—cheerful stick figures rendered in bright, neon colors and outlined boldly in black—that makes Parr one of the most recognized names in the world of childrens literature. The same simplicity of technique that once drew criticism has proved to be his most bankable commodity. His work has been displayed in the windows of FAO Schwartz, his products are sold worldwide, and he has won awards for his books and for his preschool television show ToddWorld. Pretty good for a kid who was thrown out of high school art class!

Good To Know

Not all of Parrs fans are eight and under—teens in Japan reportedly swamped the author on his book tour, bringing rice cookers and surfboards for signing. Before he began his career as a childrens author, Parr was a flight attendant for United Airlines. Parrs first job was working at Taco Time for $1 an hour at age 11. I was going to own my own someday, he said in an interview with Barnes & Noble.com. I still love tacos. :) Parr gives special credit to his family for their support: I have a very special family, he told Barnes & Noble.com. They never really understood me, but encouraged me to go after everything I wanted even when we did not agree. As I now realize—this takes a lot of love to do. Parr has no formal art training. He was flabbergasted when he was approached to write childrens books. I cant even spell, he told us, so the idea of being an author never entered my mind! Once he realized this would not be an obstacle, it cleared the way for him to focus on his artwork and the messages behind it. When asked what kind of advice he would give to kids who want to be artists, heres what Parr told us: Believe in yourself. Art is art even if no one else likes what you do. If it makes you happy, stay with it. Dont give up. And surround yourself with your work to remind yourself of what makes you feel good. The message behind my work stemmed somewhat from my childhood because it was not okay for me to be who I was. I did not conform to the norm or want to be like everyone else. Things have not changed that much for kids today either; it seems harder for them. So in the process of doing what Im doing in my work—enjoying my life and being happy—if I can help someone, especially kids, learn to believe in themselves, accept others, and learn not to hate, then maybe someones life will be a little easier and maybe their dreams a little closer to coming true.

Biography

Author/illustrator Todd Parr is the poster child for perseverance. Growing up in Wyoming, he knew he wanted to be an artist, but he met with rejection at almost every turn. In school, his drawings and paintings were considered childish and simplistic. He even failed his high school art course for not meeting class standards. As a result, for many years he lacked the self-confidence to pursue his dreams. Then, when he finally mustered the resolve to begin painting in earnest, his work was turned down by dozens of galleries. Yet, in spite of these roadblocks, Parr persisted. He arranged a small showing of his paintings at Wolfgang Pucks San Francisco restaurant Postrio. A buyer for Macys West saw his canvases and encouraged him to design a line of merchandise for the store. Then, in 1998, Parrs bold, colorful style caught the eye of Little Brown agent Megan Tingley, who approached him to write childrens books. The rest, as they say, is publishing history. Unlike other childrens authors, Parr is not a traditional storyteller; yet his books—with their positive, reassuring messages about acceptance, self-confidence, and diversity—have become enormously popular. In bestsellers like The Family Book, We Belong Together and Its Okay to Be Different, he encourage preschoolers to be themselves, to express their feelings, and to celebrate what makes each of them unique. But it is his artwork—cheerful stick figures rendered in bright, neon colors and outlined boldly in black—that makes Parr one of the most recognized names in the world of childrens literature.
