Deprived of both her parents and her grandparents at the age of ten, Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer has spent most of her life forging solid relationships and teaching others to do the same. Dr. Ruth knows that kids often don't recognize the value of grandparents and aren't always sure how to treat them. In her warm, forthright manner, she discusses the many ways in which grandparents can enrich children's lives and suggests how kids can help out in return and show appreciation. As for those who don't have grandparents, Dr. Ruth tells them how to get some! Dr. Ruth's words of wisdom are joyfully complemented by Tracey Campbell Pearson's lively drawings.
