What Makes a Real Grandpa?
by Kevin B Bickford

William’s second grade class is writing stories about their grandparents, and William knows exactly the story he wants to tell! William wants to write about his grandma Louise and his grandpa George. There is just one problem . . . Grandpa George isn’t William’s “real” grandpa. Grandpa George feels like William’s real grandpa. He cares for William and plays with William and helps William, but he does not share any DNA with William. Surely that can’t mean Grandpa George isn’t William’s real grandpa, can it? What Makes a Real Grandpa unpacks the complexity of familial structures, specifically the addition of and connection to step-parents and step-grandparents. Join William as he learns that family ties are composed of stronger lines than blood.

What Makes a Real Grandpa is author Kevin B. Bickford’s debut publication. Inspired by his true-life experience of being a step-grandparent to his wonderful grandchildren, Kevin wrote What Makes a Real Grandpa to help families navigate conversations about their family unit. Kevin lives in Alberta, Canada with his wife, where he loves spending time with his family and friends.
