Written by a grandmother whose husband has multiple sclerosis, My Grampy Can't Walk is a children's picturebook designed to help young people understand family illnesses. The simple rhyming verse and warm, flowing color illustrations tell the story of a young child and a grandfather who share a special bond; even though the grandfather can't walk and uses a wheelchair to get around, it doesn't stop them from enjoying life together. A heartwarming, upbeat and positive book, highly recommended. My Grampy can't walk. / But he can read to me / Stories of far-away places. / Or see who laughs first / When we make funny faces.
