Beautiful Way To Discuss Strokes With Kids

When Grandpa Comes Home
I came across this book about how to talk to children about strokes while doing some research on trials for new drugs and prevention.  It is such a great way to help children understand what's going on. The character of Grandpa is brought home after suffering a stroke and stays with his daughter, son, and granddaughter, Jane. It goes through Jane and Grandpa's frustrations with the adjustment of living with a stroke, not only with the patient but with the family.  You can read it online. 

I love it! What a creative way to help others understand what stroke does!
