How do you explain Alzheimer’s Disease to kids? Start with a bedtime story that will help them process what’s happening to Grandma.
“This heartfelt exploration of Alzheimer’s Disease is the perfect read to help your children develop an understanding of the effects of the illness on your loved ones.” E.M. Fitch
Caleb will do anything to protect the people he loves–and his grandma is top of that list, especially now that she has Alzheimer’s disease.
After Emma accidentally insults Grams, Caleb lashes out and makes fun of Emma’s dyslexia. Emma’s best friend Sydney rushes to her defense, starting a girls versus boys cartoon war that involves the whole sixth grade. Pencils ready, students of Whitman Elementary, prepare to battle!
When Sydney starts taking art lessons from Grams, she connects with Grams in a way that Caleb can’t. Love, lost memories, and new friendships enable powerful conversations to happen, especially about the toughest topic of all–Alzheimer’s disease.
