Staff Pick

Now One Foot, Now the Other is an absolutely sweet grandfather-grandson friendship story, but it's also a great tool for teaching kids about strokes and preparing them for the changes they might see. In fact, I had a young friend once who experienced brain damage, and I think this book would have worked really well for explaining to her four-year-old schoolmates the concept of brain damage — and also the concept of rehabilitation. (Plus, it has a happy ending, for those of you worried that grandpa dies in the end.)

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was a great way to introduce children to how to deal with a family member or loved one who is sick.
