47 months - This wasn't at all a bad book just one that might be more appropriate for adults. Talk about going way over the head of a kid. Really don't think my almost 4 year old is going to understand the historical significance of a Nazi officer for example. ( )

An old man laying in a hospital bed tells his grandson the story of his life, not realizing that the whole time there was an angel at his side who helped him along every step of the way. The story is very simply told, with few words and with Bauer's signature simple illustrations that speak volumes. Loved it with a capital "L". ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763627437, Hardcover)

With gentle visual humor, Jutta Bauer's simple story shows how Grandpa's charmed life may be due to someone special watching over him all along.

Grandpa loves to tell stories about his past. There was the time he was almost run over by a bus, the time he made a big dog cower with just one look, and all those scary street corners he passed by unscathed. From climbing the highest trees to surviving World War II and starting a family, Grandpa has led an unusually blessed life. But maybe it was more than mere luck that kept him safe. . . .

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:03:32 -0400)

An elderly man shares his life story with his grandson, complete with long, dangerous walks to school, war, love and marriage, and a very special protector.
