I encourage grandparents to read the story with their grandchildren to strengthen their bond.

There’s no place like home… Except Grandpa’s.

In “Joey Visits Grandpa,” author Patricia Nichvolodoff tells a humorous and heart-warming story about the special relationship between Joey and his grandfather.

After his grandfather continuously misplaces his glasses, Joey devises a creative plan to solve his grandfather’s problem. Just as the initial problem is solved, the story ends with a new problem, revealing a humorous conundrum left for young readers to solve on their own.

“The real-life circumstances in the story entertain both children and adults,” Nichvolodoff said. “Searching for the hidden glasses in each illustration is a fun game that both can play and enjoy.”

Inspired by her own relationship with her father, Nichvolodoff hopes to remind parents of the powerful influence of loving relationships on a child’s development, encourage children to utilize their problem-solving skills and develop a child’s love for literature.

“Building relationships with family is rewarding,” Nichvolodoff said. “I encourage grandparents to read the story with their grandchildren to strengthen their bond.”
