In this heartwarming intergenerational story, Grandpa Bear introduces his grandson Jake to a very special place--the library!

Let's turn the TV off, says Grandpa to Jake. There's some place I'd like to show you... a place my Grandpa took me when I was your age. As the two of them walk through the busy town, Grandpa shares the favorite places he and his own grandpa went together . . . and Little Jake keeps guessing where they are going. The movies? The baseball park? The beach? Not this time, says Grandpa, and has Jake close his eyes before going into . . . the library!
