The War With Grandpa by Robert Kimmel Smith

War with Grandpa

I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads! It is such a joyful, fun, and spirited book. I love it.

I bought this book to read to my 11 year old son over his summer break. 
Peter and his war with grandpa over getting his room back was the cuties story I have read in a very long time. Robert Kimmel Smith does a wonderful job of weaving this tale from beginning to end with such hilarity. My son and I both loved this book immensely. I would recommend this book to anyone child or adult who wants a good laugh. This book is full of them.

Along with the hilarity, Smith does an excellent job of intermixing three lessons every child can benefit from learning and every adult could us as a reminder.

  1. Don’t let others influence how you handle problems in your life and/or with your family. They aren’t living your life.
  2. War has a way of spiraling out of control. Before you know it everyone is hurt and no one can remember how it started.
  3. Communication is the key to peace.

This was a joy to read with my son and I recommend this quick read for you and your child as well.

I purchased this book with my own funds with no expectation of a positive review from the author and/or publisher.
