Grandparents’ Day is coming up, and everyone at school is excited — everyone except Arnie. He doesn’t have any grandparents. But Arnie has many other grownups in his life. Like Ms. Childs, who helps him find good books to read, and Coach Ed, who’s always ready for a game of catch, and Bill and Dottie, who share a snack with him each day after school. Too bad none of them can be his grandparents. Or can they?
Ideal for family sharing, Nancy Carlson’s warm, uplifting story explores the very special relationships that can result when children and older adults enter into each other’s lives — and hearts.
