It’s no secret that grandparents dote on their grandchildren. But have you ever thought about doting in a way that can make a lasting difference – actually giving those youngsters a let up on life? Today we’ll hear from one grandfather who dotes with a purpose – and that purpose is literacy. Rachel talks to Brad Wilcox and his daughter Wendee about the way this plays out in their extended family. Brad Wilcox is a professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Brigham Young University. He’s lived in Utah, Ethiopia, and Chile, serving as an advocate for children and learning wherever he has gone. And Wendee Wilcox Rosborough, Brad’s daughter, is a mom and author.
