Grandpa, What is Parkinson’s?: A Simple Story to Help Your Child Understand Parkinson’s Disease
Hands that shake, feet that freeze mid-step and a face that rarely smiles…these are just some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease that can be hard to understand for young children. Written with rhymes, a dash of humor and lots of love, this book is a story that a grandpa is telling to his great-grandsons about what it’s like to live with Parkinson’s. It helps to take some of the mystery away, and reminds us that Grandpa is still there, and still loves us, even as Parkinson’s changes his body.
