Atta Boy, Joe!: Tales and Testament of a Grandfather's Words of Wisdom, Family Values, and Unwavering Love
Miss the old days when the best place in the world was your grandfather's house? Well, rekindle that family spirit through the stories in this book and relive some of those fond memories! Watch as a boy and his grandfather, his "Gumpa", pronounced "GOOM-pah", grow together in the small upstate New York town of Endwell. Laugh as their light hearted enchanting adventures enjoy a fun and carefree Gumpa flair, taking them from barbers to nursing homes to football to homework and oftentimes to Gumpa's house. Learn from Gumpa's unique spin on the world as he teaches valuable lessons about life, love, and self. Be humbled as Gumpa gives of himself without concern, placing the needs of others before his own. As you wonder if he can do and deal with anything, discover no man can take the world on alone. Be inspired when together they must come to grips with their greatest obstacle yet, death.
There is nothing quite like the bond shared between grandson and grandfather-because there is nothing quite like the love of a grandparent and ultimately, the love of a family. Read it, and then read it again. Or better yet, go call your grandfather.
