bookdads said: The little girl in this story is thrilled to be spending the night with her Grandpa, and she’s brought along her overnight bag with everything that they will need for their visit together. And as it happens, she’s brought them all in alphabetical order, from apples to the key to her treasure chest to the zipper on her pajamas. It’s quite a busy evening for her playful and patient grandpa and his black-and-white cat as they try to keep up with her. The busy illustrations perfectly portray a hyper-kinetic youngster as she rushes from activity to activity while her increasingly worn grandpa steers her towards bedtime. By the end of the day, even the cat is exhausted! But when it’s finally time to go to bed, she discovers that there is one thing she’s forgotten after all, but fortunately grandpa is there to come to her rescue. This is a charming book that will strike an instantly familiar chord with anyone who’s ever taken care of an energetic young child, and a painless way to practice the alphabet with children as well.
