My daughter's school librarian sent this book home when I asked for a book to help my daughter understand the permanence of this condition. The book was wonderful - we were able to laugh (grandma puts her shoes in the fridge) and even when the grandma moved to a nursing home, the story was not scary. The focus was on loving grandma just the way she was and helping grandma feel loved, even if she didn't remember.

I got this book at the library thinking it was about a girl's relationship with her grandmother. As I read it to her, I realized that the book deals with the progression of her grandmother's Alzheimer's disease. I am not one to cry easily, but this book really moved me to tears. It is extremely sensitive and thoughtful with how the parents explain the disease to their daughter and the things that they help her to do to maintain a relationship with her and to help the grandmother maintain her dignity.

I was looking for something that would start the discussion. I was disappointed, because this book already had the grandma in the nursing home. My daughter is 8 and noticing some changes and I hoping to find a nice book to share the love and memories and make it age approriate without her worrying about the future yet.
