Sometimes grandparents need a little help making the adjustment when they go through life changes. This wonderful story shows how tenacity and simply not giving up on someone's ability to adjust can be just the thing that is needed to help an elder make changes.

And where do children come in the story? Why is this such a wonderful story for children? The very crux of this tale is that it is the faith, innocence and energy of youth that ultimately persuades our "grumpy grandpa" to "jump back into life," after a bit of a rocky start in a new life at a nursing home.

The story 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. It is also a great tool to help grandparents know that their children and grandchildren will still be an important part of their lives as they make life changes. Or, this book/recording can be experienced simply for enjoyment. This story is delightful, and the singalong is great fun!

Excerpt from Book

One day, something special was to happen at Pleasant Manor. Some local cub scouts from a troop nearby were giving a demonstration about what they had learned in working on their badges. They had written to ask if they could come give their demonstration for the residents at Pleasant Manor.

The activity staff and the residents were very excited about the cub scouts' arrival. When the scouts and their den-master arrived, everyone was surprised and pleased to see that the cubbies had arrived with all sorts of scenery and items for their demonstration.

"They look so adorable in their little uniforms!" commented one of the lady residents of the nursing home, and everyone agreed.

While the troop was setting up, Joseph asked the scout-master if he would mind asking one of the parent chaperones to take a few of the scouts back to see a special resident.

The scoutmaster picked three boys, saying, "Timothy, Steven, and Peter, would you please go with Mr. Johnson and Joseph here for a few minutes while we are setting up?" He added, "Don't be long now, the demonstration's about to begin!"

So off went Joseph, the parent chaperone, and the three scouts. Down the long hall they traveled until they came to room C24. "Here we are, the Sarge's room!" Joseph said.

"The Sarge?" "Who's that?" and "Wow!" the boys all said at once.

Joseph said, "You'll see," and smiling, knocked on the door.

"Come in!" said Grandpa Ralph from his easy chair; and Joseph, the chaperone, and the three scouts all entered the room as Joseph opened the door.

"I have some special guests I'd like for you to meet, Mr. Jones, that is Sargent Jones. Sargent Jones, I present for inspection Timothy, Steven, and Peter, cub scouts extraordinare, sir!" said Joseph.

"Well, what do we have here?" asked Grandpa Ralph. "For goodness sakes! Quite fine scouts from the look of them, I'd say! At ease, young men."

"Yes sir!" the three boys exclaimed.

"We are going to give a demonstration!" said Timothy, with the enthusiasm and energy of the very young.

"Would you like to come?" Steven asked, looking at Grandpa Ralph with very large, open, trusting, and curious eyes.

"Yes, please come!" said Peter, following up on the entreaties of his two buddies.

Ralph was a little caught off guard, then began considering the boys' offer.

"Well," he said, "I don't normally leave my room much, you see…"

"And I haven't finished reading the paper yet…" said Ralph.

"But I think I could come out of my room- just this once!"
