A joyful ode to the special bond between grandfathers and their grandchildren and the fun of a camping trip

A girl and her grandfather strike out on an outdoor adventure in this heartfelt rhyming picture book, set to the classic rhyme of “One Two, Buckle My Shoe,” from acclaimed creators Shelly Becker and Dan Yaccarino.

“Yaccarino’s signature illustrations feature bold, bright colors and patches of pattern on each spread, coupled flawlessly with ­Becker’s exhilarating text to capture the immeasurable love shared between the child and her grandfather. Sure to be a cherished favorite, this simple but resonant book is highly recommended for early ­elementary collections.” (School Library Journal starred review)
 
One, two, Grandpa loves you.
Three, four, rush to the door.
Five, six, camping trip.
Seven, eight, best travel mate.
Shelly Becker is the author of One, Two, Grandma Loves You, which School Library Journal called “a pure, cadenced classic” in a starred review. Her other books include Even Superheroes Get Scared, Even Superheroes Make Mistakes, Even Superheroes Have Bad Days (a 2018 Blue Spruce Award Nominee that Kirkus Reviews called “an action-packed romp”), and Mine! Mine! Mine!, which has been included on many Top Five and Top Ten lists of books that teach the concept of sharing. Becker lives in Toronto, far away from her three wonderful grandchildren, who live in New Jersey. When they can’t be together in person, they keep in touch by speaking on the phone and sending plenty of pictures and videos.
