A reassuring tale of how loving relationships that transcend time and generations are sustained through memories and stories. Jesse knows her two grandfathers only through the stories that her parents share. One died before she was born; the other lived long enough to visit her when she was a baby. When Jesse and her parents spend two weeks in the country, she is drawn to Daniel, an old man who carries a walking stick to guide him along as he walks. Together, Jesse, Daniel, and Daniel's walking stick hike through the woods, cross streams, and ascend hills. When Jesse returns to the city with her parents she has her own walking stick and memories of the summer she spent with her third grandfather. In gentle, lyrical language, Wendy McCormick offers young readers a satisfying story that pays tribute to the power of stories to connect generations and create bonds of enduring love that transcend familial ties. Illustrator Constance R. Begum's soft, delicate watercolors capture the gentle tone of the story and bring the endearing characters to life.
