“Where’s Grandpa?”: a charming story of a young girl learning about her family. “Where’s Grandpa?” is the creation of published author Dr. Renée A. LaCour, an accomplished, multitalented ordained minister and “super senior” who—on top of several published titles along with her notable work in ministry, on stage, radio, film, print, and television—is also a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother currently living in Chicago.

Dr. LaCour writes about the moment the pivotal question first occurs to little Maria: “It began on a chilly Saturday afternoon of December 3, 2016. Grandma had just been dropped off at her granddaughter Maria’s house by Eric, Maria’s dad. He had dropped his mother off so he could run a few errands before coming back to pick up his wife, Annie, Maria, and Grandma to go to see the movie, ‘Almost Christmas’.

"Grandma sat at one end of the sofa where Maria’s mother sat combing five-year-old Maria’s long hair. Suddenly, little Maria burst out with, ‘Where is Grandpa?’ Grandma was so startled and thought, From where did Maria get that and why? Maria had never seen Grandpa nor had there been any conversation about him! But at the back of Grandma’s mind, a reality check came quickly. She thought, I’d like to know that myself.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Dr. Renée A. LaCour’s new book is a poignant story of a young one’s touching curiosity, her charming innocence and persistence, and her idealistic love even for relatives she has never known.

In these wonderfully illustrated pages, Dr. LaCour encourages in children a sense of family and loyalty—and perhaps inspires a few questions of their own.
