My Grandpa had a Stroke
What’s a stroke? Why can’t Grandpa move his arm? Why does he seem so different? Will he get better? Why did this have to happen to my Grandpa? Who will take care of him? Ryan loves spending Saturdays with his Grandpa, riding in the truck, stopping at Morrie’s Diner for breakfast and fishing on Hall Lake. But when his grandfather has a stroke, everything suddenly changes. Now Ryan is confused and scared. He’s worried about his grandfather, and he misses the special bond they shared. Offering honest and age-appropriate information about strokes, this gentle story also addresses the many feelings children face and helps them adjust while finding new ways to maintain those special family bonds. A comprehensive note to parents provides additional guidance, information and resources. Full-colour illustrations. For ages 4–8.
