About the Author
Avid reader and mother to two boys, Karen Grand is excited to share her first published book with young readers and adults alike. A strong believer that children and parents need to connect on difficult life topics, she hopes that her book will encourage critical discussions as a parent reads the book together with their child. Karen and her husband, Marty, reside in Caron, Saskatchewan, where they enjoy magnificent sunsets and their intimate church family. Together they have ridden a motorcycle across Canada and the United States, enjoying God’s creation across the continent.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A Year of Holidays with Papa Hein
Danae and Marc aren’t sure what to expect when their parents decide to “adopt” a senior from a nearby nursing home, but from the moment they meet him, Papa Hein becomes a trusted friend and honourary grandfather. A trivia lover, Papa Hein is happy to share his vast store of knowledge, especially on holidays and other special occasions. Each history lesson carries a spiritual theme that the children—and readers—can apply to their lives. As a society, we often ignore elderly people to the point where they become invisible, but the affection that grows between the children and their “Papa” in this story illustrates the mutual benefits of the young interacting with the elderly. From meaningful conversations to a greater understanding of the challenges of aging, the beautiful relationship portrayed in A Year of Holidays with Papa Hein will teach valuable lessons to all readers—lessons of love, hope, and godliness.
