When Eclair’s mother leaves home, Eclair and her little sister must go live on a farm with Stella, their eccentric grandma.
“More and more, grandparents today are assuming the role of part-time or even full-time caregivers for their grandkids. In Eclair Goes to Stella’s, we see how one grandmother bravely and creatively steps into this role to help her family through a difficult situation. I’m certain that children everywhere will be able to relate to the range of emotions that little Éclair faces as she struggles to adjust to her new living arrangements then begins to welcome the love and care her grandmother offers.” ~ Renee Gray-Wilburn, co-author of Grandparenting Through Obstacles: Overcoming Family Challenges to Reach Your Grandchildren for Christ (Pix-N-Pens, 2012).
