My Grandpa’s Shaky Hands
Parkinson’s disease affects millions of people worldwide. It is a disease that challenges every aspect of a person’s life including relationships with family, friends and particularly those most vulnerable, the children in our lives. Interactions and activities that were once easy and natural can become more difficult. This beautifully illustrated book serves as a tool to facilitate dialogue with the very youngest in our families. It celebrates and honors the natural optimism of every child using the enduring, loving bond between grandfather and grandson as an example. It’s about a boy who can only see the positive in what others perceive as his grandfather’s disability and also portrays the optimistic and determined attitude of a grandfather as he continues to find joy in life despite the physical challenges that Parkinson’s disease brings.
