Bobby is named after his grandfather Bob. "Bob" is baby Bobby's first word, his first friend, the person who teaches him to walk and stack blocks. But after Bob has a stroke he can't walk or talk and doesn't even seem to remember Bobby.

This is a really touching little book. I would recommend it as an alternative to people who find Love You Forever creepy and ill-done but want something in that general vein, or more specifically for children who are close to a grandparent or other older person with serious health problems.
