My Grampy can’t walk,
But he works every day.

"Here's an upbeat story with a happy message. There is an authentic ring to Vanita Oelschlager's tale, and the illustrations are young and lively. 'Grampy', the hero of this story, soars!"
Eric Carle
Children's Book Author & Illustrator

"I have known 'Grampy' for thirty years, and although his physical abilities have declined, his passion for living life to the fullest has not. As this book illustrates, he passes along life's lessons reflected in the natural world to those who enjoy them most - his grandchildren."
Thomas E. Gretter
MD, Cleveland Clinic Foundation

"Grampy has multiple sclerosis but the impact of this charming picture book goes well beyond one disease. It shows children everywhere that wheelchairs don't limit people. By depicting active fun and quiet loving moments, Vanita Oelschlager helps normalize disability for everyone. We heartily recommend this book."
Joyce Nelson
President & CEO, National Multiple Sclerosis Society

"My Grampy Can't Walk tells the story that Jim's life personifies: that our disabilities need not define us. He disarms you with his wit and salt-of-the-earth grasp of life. The scooter is beside the point."
Diane Evans
Columnist, Akron Beacon Journal
