If Grandpa Were Here
A Book of Memories and Lasting Love
by Amber L. Bradbury

If Grandpa were here, what would you do with him today? Would you go for a ride in his truck? Would you help him fix your bike? Or maybe share an ice cream sundae after a hike? If Grandpa Were Here: A Book of Memories and Lasting Love describes, through thoughtful words and beautiful illustrations, the special moments—remembered or imagined—of the fun times children shared with a beloved grandfather they may now be missing. Its diverse, relatable characters relive happy days spent with Grandpa and picture future events they’d love to share with him in spirit, to keep his memory and everlasting love alive... A touching companion title to the critically acclaimed If Grandma Were Here: A Book of Memories.

"Warmth, love, family and memories bring joy in this poignant tribute to grandpas." –Kirkus Reviews "This was such a joy and a comfort to read...this book needs to be on the shelf of any child who has ever had the gift of a wonderful grandfather." –Gina Moffa, LCSW Author of “Moving On Doesn't Mean Letting Go: A Modern Guide to Navigating Loss” "This book is truly wonderful, and I strongly encourage parents and children to read and discuss it." –Dr. Christian Gregory Founder, Dick Gregory Media, Inc. "This sweet, insightful book is like a loving hug from the special person a child is missing, and like a heartfelt embrace, is something readers will want to experience again and again." –Deborah Guarino Author of “Is Your Mama a Llama?”
