I recently read a wonderful new book by Kathleen Cherry called Blowing Bubbles. The story is about a boy, Josh, and his grandfather. They have a great relationship until one day, Grandpa George has a stroke.
School counselors work with students like Josh almost every day, but it can be challenging to find quality resources to help children cope with illness and aging. Kathleen Cherry, a school counselor herself, created this beautiful story to fill that void. I definitely recommend this heartfelt and honest book. Check it out!

in CM Magazine, Volume XIX Number 29
The bibliotherapeutic text does a very good job of conveying the child's emotional point of view.
Jill Quinn Babcock's watercolour illustrations realistically capture the concerns of the family. Josh's body language runs the gamut from expressions of worry and fear and trepidation to a joyful reunion.
"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
