Sometimes children need a little help making the adjustment when someone they love very much, such as a grandparent, goes through life changes. This wonderful story shows how love, concern, flexibility, and patience help all concerned to deal with a beloved grandmother's progression of care as she ages. It ends with a wonderful singalong filled with songs that any Grandparent would love to share with their grandchildren. Grandparents will enjoy explaining to their grandchildren that the songs in this singalong were the songs they used to sing with their own parents when they were children. This is a great recording/book for grandparents to experience together with their grandchildren, or parents to experience with their children. It is a great tool to help children adjust to changes in their grandparents lives, or can be experienced simply for enjoyment. This story is delightful, and the singalong is great fun!

Excerpt from Book:

Grammie Midge and her youngest grandson James seemed to have a very special relationship. James seemed to have a special connection with his Grammie. He truly loved to come and visit. He would beg his mother and father to take him to see his Grammie. He liked to go to visit her more than any place he could think of. And James' parents often took him to see his grandmother.

When James came to his Grammie's, he and his grandmother would make cookies together (and more importantly, eat the cookies together!)

They would eat the cookies with wonderful milk, which James only got to drink at his Grammie's house. This was not the thin, watery skim milk which James' health-conscious family drank, but delicious, thick, very cold whole milk.

This milk tasted much more like the milk Grammie remembered drinking when she would visit her aunts and uncles who lived out in the country when she was a little girl.

It was sort of out of fashion to drink this kind of milk nowadays. Some said it wasn't even healthy (too much fat!). But Grammie felt it was the best sort of milk to go with the cookies she and James would make and eat- and James agreed!

Sometimes James and his Grammie would play games together. Checkers or Tic-Tac-Toe, it didn't matter what sort of game they played, they just had a great time playing together!

It didn't really matter who won either. It just mattered that they spent this time together. James thought it was neat that his Grammie, whom his parents said was eighty years old, still liked to play games.

One day, when James asked to go see his Grammie, his mother told him, "James, we have something to tell you. Your Grammy is making a move."

"A move? You mean she's not going to live at her house anymore?" asked James.

Well now James, you know that your Grampy hasn't been around for a long time. You never got to know him, because he went to live with Jesus in heaven a long time before you were born. You know we told you that your Grammie raised your mommy and all your aunts and uncles all on her own."

"Yes, Dad," said James.

"Well, " continued his father, "She's a very strong lady, but she's getting older now. And when folks get older, it gets a bit harder to do all the things they used to do. Grampy's in heaven and Grammie's children are all grown up now and live in their own houses."

"So Grammie's all alone, now?" asked James.

"Well, said James' mother, "your grandma has a lot of love and help from all of us, but her house is still a bit much for her to take care of. She'd like to move to a place where she has a little help when she needs it.

"What kind of help does Grammie need?" asked James. "I try to help Grammie whenever I come to visit."

"Yes, you do," said James' father. "You are very good about helping your Grammie. But we can't always be there when she needs help."

"And Grammie sometimes doesn't feel so well," James' mother interjected. "There is a special place where she can live, and all the housework, cooking, and yard work is all taken care of. And, if Grammie doesn't feel well and needs a nurse or a doctor, someone will be there to help her right away."

"Does Grammie want to move?" asked James.

"Well, said James' father, "Grammie says she will miss her house, but she thinks this is what's best for her."

"Well, if moving is what Grammie wants, then that's what she should do!" said James.

"We're glad you understand, James!" said his mother.

"I just have one question, " remarked young James.

"Yes?" said his father.

"Will I still get to go see Grammie?" asked James.

"Of course, honey!" said his mother.

"And will we still make cookies together?" he wondered.

"Well, I think that's up to your grandmother," said James' father, "but I wouldn't be surprised if your Grandma still made cookies."

"Grammie's good milk too?" asked James.

"I expect so," answered his father, smiling at his mother, and patting James on the head.

"Now run and play outside a bit before dinner," said James' mother picking up a saucepan. And out the door the little boy flew, yelling to his friends, "Hey guys! Guess what? My Grammie's moving!"
