In her typically chatty, sensible style, Dr. Ruth offers children advice on how to learn from and appreciate their grandparents, whether near or far, in Dr. Ruth Talks About Grandparents by Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer with Pierre Lehu, illus. by Tracey Campbell Pearson. Chapters deal with such issues as developing shared interests, mining grandparents for history, resolving conflicts, etc.; there are also suggestions on how to adopt a "foster grandparent."
As part of the discussion, Dr. Ruth not only explains how the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren have changed for the better during modern times, but also what constitutes a grandparent. She then proceeds to show how the relationship is much stronger when it's a "two-way street." Dr. Ruth's step-by-step advice on how to maintain a close relationship with grandparents who are far away, how to "adopt" a grandparent, how to talk to grandparents even if parents get divorced, even how to teach their elders how to use the VCR or a computer will help readers build bridges of communication. Pearson's delightful black-and-white illustrations will appeal to readers and make the book—packed with wisdom—accessible.
