Grandma’s Moving In!
We are living in a day when grandparents are disposed of. They are sent away from those who love them to impersonal institutions where they are viewed as simply more needy people requiring care. But that’s not the vision of “honor thy father and thy mother” which we seek to communicate. That’s why we’re so pleased to have this uplifting book for children, Grandma’s Moving In on our shelves for children which teaches them by good example the gentle art of loving and caring for the elderly.
