A Plan for Pops

by Heather Smith, illustrated by Brooke Kerrigan

tagged: depression & mental illness, multigenerational, imagination & play
Description

Lou spends every Saturday with Grandad and Pops. They walk to the library hand in “hand, like a chain of paper dolls. Grandad reads books about science and design, Pops listens to rock and roll, and Lou bounces from lap to lap. But everything changes one Saturday. Pops has a fall. That night there is terrible news: Pops will be confined to a wheelchair, not just for now, but for always. Unable to cope with his new circumstances, he becomes withdrawn and shuts himself in his room. Hearing Grandad trying to cheer up Pops inspires Lou to make a plan. Using skills learned from Grandad, and with a little help from their neighbors, Lou comes up with a plan for Pops.

Brooke Kerrigan has loved to draw ever since she was a little girl, so it seemed only natural that she would grow up to be an artist.
