John loves Grandpa's house the best because he sees it through Grandpa's eyes. Grandpa is blind but he has his own way of seeing.When Nana sculpts Grandpa's head out of clay, Grandpa's fingers tell him it looks like him. 'Pretend your fingers are water, ' he tells John. In the meadow, Grandpa hears the song sparrow even before John sees it. And Grandpa smells the marigolds among the plates of eggs and toast on the kitchen table.In this beautifully illustrated picture book, author and artist tell a tender story about a young boy who learns to see through his grandpa's eyes.
