Jessie spends a glorious day in the park with Grandpa, frolicking, in the falling leaves, swinging on the swings, and encountering a variety of other people. In the ordinary course of walking and talking and playing, Grandpa imparts his wisdom and love of life, and Jessie see in him what she hopes to be. "Wednesday, A Walk in the Park" is the third book in The Jessie Books series, which offers an inspiring story for each day of the week, featuring a precocious little girl who lives with her two moms in Queens, New York.
