If you are looking for a story about understanding aging, disabilities, acceptance, and compassion, this Amazon #1 Best Seller in four categories (Multigenerational Families, Aging Parents & Eldercare, Children's Maturing Books, and Children's Camping Books), is the book for you.

This multi-award-winning children's book in categories including disability awareness and special needs, is beautifully illustrated taking place in a mountain setting with nature all around. It is a sweet story to help explain the impacts of aging and disabilities in general. It is about a boy and his grandpa as they are trekking on a Colorado trail where little Joey sees his grandpa is acting differently. What Joey doesn't understand is that Grandpa is experiencing disabilities that come along with aging. Joey misinterprets Grandpa's inability to do what he could do with him in the past as a reflection on him, questioning whether his grandpa still loves him anymore. Misunderstandings such as this are common and require communication to get the big, the true picture of what really is happening. This is a multigenerational story which is wonderful for parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends to read with children leading discussion on how easily situations can be misunderstood.
