A good poem for Grandparents Day is "Allergic Reaction" by Howard Eisenberg. This humorous poem highlights a grandparent's view that the strongest allergy grandchildren have is to cleaning up. "Gale Warnings" is another funny poem by Eisenberg and depicts the chaos that grandchildren leave after they visit their grandparents' home.
These two poems and other rhymes about grandparents are contained in Eisenberg's book, "Toddler Empire". Grandparents Day was established by President Jimmy Carter in 1978 and falls on the second Sunday in September. The purpose of Grandparents Day is to acknowledge and appreciate the contributions that grandparents make in families and society.
