Annotation: Ever since Grandpa got Parkinson's, Noah has noticed he hasn't been the same. He doesn't have as much energy as he used to, and sometimes when he's excited or happy, he can't smile. Noah worries that Parkinson's is his fault, but Grandpa assures him it's not—and it won't stop him from having fun at the beach!

Noah's beach day with his mom and grandpa consists of riding bikes, swimming, building a sandcastle, and searching for seashells...but only once Grandpa's Parkinson's medication takes effect. Grandpa's frank answers to Noah's questions about the disease reassure Noah--and will also aid young readers' understanding of it (as do an appended doctor's note and talking points). Bright, playful illustrations reflect the sunny beach and close-knit family. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
