A Review of ‘Grandpa’s Workshop’

Scott Stahl, aka The Pragmatic Woodworker, has posted a review of “Grandpa’s Workshop” on his blog.

As Scott is a father with a 10-year-old daughter, I was particularly interested and pleased to see how his young one reacted to the story.

I know that this book isn’t for every family. It possesses none of the Disney-era varnish that is comforting, bland and easily digested. And that is exactly why I love “Grandpa’s Workshop.”

Check out Scott’s review here.

    I’ve read half of it and have to say that I think it is fantastic. I can’t wait to give to my kids for Christmas so that I can read it to them! Thank you for bringing it to us.

    The best review of all comes from my six year old son, who has had me read it to him 7 times since it arrived. He was so excited about the “treasure box”(Pepe clothaire’s tool chest) that we spent a weekend building one. Two 8′ long 1″ by 12″ pine boards, assembled like the “packing case”, in the form of the ATC, and painted in rainbow colors,made us both very proud. Inspiration is the highest praise, indeed.Thank you.
