In coping with the death of her husband, Nick, the author, Mrs. Lynda M. Daniele, took a writing class at her local YMCA and began writing a story for children about her husband’s battle with meningioma and the neighborhood children he was babysitting for. The four children did not have a grandfather and asked him to be their grandfather. With a great big Grandpa Nick smile, he agreed. Grandpa Nick’s Bump tells the story of a silly, playful Grandpa Nick and the importance of grandfather-hood.
“Grandpa Nick the Conductor” is a story of a Trolley Conductor who drives trolleys and teaches visitors about how trolleys work and move.

What is that sound in the trolley barn? Let’s see! Come and join Grandpa Nick and Anthony in the trolley barn as they restore and paint old trolleys! You’ll never know who might be with them!
