Description

An empowering and necessary picture book about a young girl with Down syndrome who gains confidence and independence through a visit to her grandparents.

It's Kate's first time visiting her grandparents on her own at their lakeside home. She's nervous but excited at the adventure ahead.

She helps her grandfather with his grocery deliveries by boat, where she meets all the neighbors, including a very grumpy old man named Walter. And she makes best friends with her grandparents' dog, Parbuckle.

Her grandmother even teaches her to pilot the boat all by herself!

When her grandfather takes ill suddenly, it's up to Kate -- but can she really make all those deliveries, even to grumpy old Walter? She has to try!

Based on the author's sister, Kate is a lovable, brave, smart and feisty character who will capture your heart in this gorgeous and moving story about facing fears and gaining independence.
