In Plain Sight by Richard Jackson

Grandpa lives with Sophie and her parents. After school, Sophie looks in on Grandpa, and they talk about their day.

Grandpa’s twinkling eyes give away his playful spirit as each day he hides something in plain sight for Sophie to find—no small task in the homey-looking room filled with books, memorabilia, and furniture. Each discovery is a wonderful surprise, and the game continues to grow the bond of love between Sophie and Grandpa. One Sunday, Sophie decides to take the initiative and she hides in plain sight, delighting Grandpa with her trick.

Illustrated with the remarkably detailed and energetic artwork of Jerry Pinkney, this picture book shows how the love between a grandparent and grandchild can light up both their worlds. Differing ages and abilities—Grandpa spends his days in a wheelchair—are no obstacle to having fun, playing games, and enjoying each other’s company. (Roaring Brook Press)
