From the Publisher:
Becoming increasingly concerned when her beloved grandfather tells her the same stories repeatedly and then forgets her name, young Kate creates a photo album of their favorite shared memories to help them both cope with his progressing Alzheimer's disease.Kate has always adored her grandpa's storytelling - but lately he's been repeating the same stories again and again. One day, he even forgets Kate's name. Her mother's patient explanations open Kate's eyes to what so many of the elderly must confront: Alzheimer's disease and other forms of memory loss. Determined to support her grandfather, Kate explores ways to help him - and herself - cope by creating a photo album of their times together, memories that will remain in their hearts forever.
Annotation:
A young girl named Kate enjoys a close relationship with her beloved grandfather, but lately he seems to be changing--he's forgetting things, repeating himself a lot, and seems confused most of the time. One day, when Grandpa can't remember her name, Kate asks her mother why her grandfather is acting this way. Kate's mom gently explains to Kate that her grandfather has Alzheimer's disease. Once Kate understands her grandfather's situation, she works on a plan to help him (and herself) cope with his memory loss. Color illustrations accompany the text, which was inspired by the author's father's battle with Alzheimer's.
