book for grandparents day

September 13, 2012

Well, I missed posting this for Grandparents day this year, but maybe you can put it on your list for next year. Or just read it any day because really, isn't every day you get to be with your grandma or grandpa Grandparent's day? I think so.

Really and Truly was sent to me as a review copy from Owl Kids books. The more I read it, the more I love it.

It's the story of a little boy with a grandpa who used to make up stories for him (like a pirate who lives in the attic and a gnome who lives in the basement) but is now fighting a disease that has taken away his memories, words, and even his smile.

Charlie finds a way to reconnect with him and bring back his smile by telling him stories--just like the ones his grandpa used to tell to him.

I love how it highlights the love between a grandparent and grandkid and also how stories connect us and can even heal us.
