About the Author

Jessie Oliveros grew up watching Kansas sunsets, and she'll always have wild sunflowers and gold-tipped corn fields in her heart. She spent her college-life climbing mountains in Utah and striving for higher vistas. After a fulfilling career as a registered nurse, Jessie hung up her stethoscope to grow children and stories. These days you can find her in the Texas hill country with her husband and their four kids. You can visit her at JessieOliveros.com.

Dana Wulfekotte is an animator and children's book creator. She was born in South Korea, raised in New Jersey, and currently lives in Queens, New York, with her boyfriend and two pet rabbits.

Reviews

*** "James and Grandpa's shared heritage and stories of their loving family shine. What is clear is that their memories matter-to them and ultimately to readers. A moving and meaningful way to talk about a situation many families will face." - Kirkus, starred review
"Oliveros never sugarcoats the difficulties of dementia, but young listeners are most likely to note this mixed-race family's gracious understanding of Grandpa's troubles, as well as the joy they take in retelling his tales." - Booklist
"[The] distinctive look, combined with the simple, plaintive prose, offers genuine poignancy." - Publisher's Weekly
"This touching title is perfect for one-on-one sharing, but keep the tissues handy." - School Library Journal
