The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Beyond Hugs, Kisses, and Cookies:  A Grandparent Dozen

--selected by Kate Quealy-Gainer, Assistant Editor

If you were to judge grandparents simply by Hallmark cards and the majority of picture books, you might think that the big G-Pa and G-Ma were only good for kisses on the cheek, folksy sayings, and maybe a nice baked treat here and there.  But, as these books show, grandparents often have more than a few good stories to tell and when we listen we're in for a treat of another kind entirely.
