About the Author:

Dori Hillestad Butler is the author of numerous magazine stories, educational materials, and books for children. Her own father suffered a stroke several years ago. My Grandpa Had a Stroke is the book she wished she had for her kids at that time. Dori lives with her husband, two children, a dog, and a cat in Coralville, Iowa.

From Booklist:

Ryan loves spending Saturdays fishing with his grandfather. But when Grandpa suffers a stroke, everything changes. Step-by-step, the book shows children in the same situation what they might expect. Ryan first sees Grandpa in the hospital, sleepy, disoriented, and unable to move the left side of his body. A stint in rehab helps, but after the therapists do all they can, Grandpa must move to Ryan's house. Throughout, Ryan wants to help, but there's no denying his fear and upset. The book, illustrated in soft-edged watercolors, ends on a hopeful note, as Ryan and his grandfather are able to go fishing once more, albeit with Grandpa in his wheelchair. With quiet prose, this covers most of the emotional and practical hurdles faced by both patient and child. There is even a moment when Grandpa calls a woman "Fatty," and Mom explains that stroke patients sometimes say inappropriate things. A three-page note for parents gives solid, helpful advice about talking with children about strokes. A sad but useful book. Cooper, Ilene
