God has a special gift for five-year-old Sandra. This gift is her precious grandfather.
"Grandfather and Grandmother took care of me when I was a little girl," Mother explains to Sandra. "Now it is our turn to take care of Grandfather."
Sandra is pleased that Grandfather is coming to live with them. Perhaps he will read stories with her. Perhaps he will bring candy.
But something is happening to Grandfather. On some days, his mind is good, and he smiles and tells stories. On other days, his mind is sick, and he says and does strange things that make Sandra feel sad.
Through the days that follow, Sandra learns how to relate to the elderly and finds special joy in being Grandfather's helper.
