Shirley Hartung’s book entitled Grounded is not just for children. My husband and I sat down and we both read it cover to cover with interest and attention – it is a real page-turner! Touching, compelling, educational, and well written. I grew up in the fifties under the fear of polio. Childhood activities were curtailed by parents who were afraid for their children. Many people growing up later do not know what we all went through, but Shirley has brought this topic to the forefront again. The workbook is an excellent addition to the story book. Bravo, Shirley, for bringing this subject to our attention once again.
