The narrative is particularly effective in converting childish concern into caretaker reassurance ('When your mom and dad leave, pat your grandpa's hand and say, Don't worry. They always come back ')...While grandpas will obviously enjoy sharing this story with their little ones (and parents will enjoy purchasing it for a Father's Day gift for said grandpa), there is enough playfulness here to broaden the appeal to a wider audience.
