About the Book

A grandfather partners up with his eight-year-old grandson, David, for the yearly kite contest with more than a blue ribbon in mind. Guided by his wisdom, Grandpa uses the contest as an opportunity to lovingly teach his grandson life's most treasured values.

With the help of his friends from many cultures, Grandpa also exposes David to different traditions and instills in him the richness of the bonds of friendship.

During their journey, David finds himself doubting his choice for his contest partner--only to find in the end that his grandpa helped him assemble more than a kite. Grandpa built David's character, so he could embrace all that life has in store.

About the Author

Anita Joyce Skocz is a storyteller who resides in Central Florida. She credits her passion to her father, who dazzled her imagination as a child with his gift to weave a tale. After a diving accident in 1978, Anita left the travel industry to journey the inner roads of her soul. The riches found on those adventures inward come to life in her children’s books.


Anita’s books, Crystal Star Angel and Kite Tale, were inspired by the loving relationships her father had with his grandsons.
