Grandfather's Dance is about a family who lives on a farm. The family has three kids, two dogs and their grandfather. One of the daughters is getting married in a couple of weeks. The youngest child is a boy named Jack. Jack is learning how to talk. Every time Jack is with his grandfather, he is always learning new words. Before the wedding, the Aunts visit to see the oldest daughter get married. After the wedding, they have a big party and everyone comes and gives gifts to the couple. The next week, before the Aunts leaves the whole family has a family picture. And during the pictures, Grandfather has a heart attack and dies.

I think that Grandfather's Dance is a book that is about family. I liked the book because it has a lot of funny parts in the story. I would give it to a person who wants to read about a family who loves and cares each other. It can also teach you how to live in a farm. I enjoyed reading this book.

Could anything be more perfect then a prairie wedding? Cassie doesn’t think so, for a wedding brings:
Two lovebirds together,
Aunts from faraway Main,
A long white dress with a wedding veil,
Zinnias,
Satin Ribbons
Dancing under a clear blue sky
And a world that smells of roses.

And the Witting family comes together for this most special day, Cassie sees that life brings:
The change of seasons,
Brother Jack on Grandfathers lap,
A brand new car
Joy,
Sorrow,
And a special dance only Grandfather can does. ( )

Could anything be more perfect than a prairie wedding? Cassie doesn't think so, for a wedding brings:

Two lovebirds together,
Aunts from faraway Maine,
A long white dress with a wedding veil,
Zinnias,
Satin ribbons,
Dancing under a clear blue sky,
And a world that smells of roses.

And as the Witting family comes together for this most special day, Cassie sees that life brings:

The change of seasons,
Brother Jack on Grandfather's lap,
A brand-new car,
Joy,
Sorrow,
And a special dance only Grandfather does.

Sarah, Plain and Tall began the Witting family's saga on the prairie. Now the story completes its circle with Grandfather's Dance, Patricia MacLachlan's poetic celebration about the enduring spirit of family.
