Grandma

Publisher: Child's Play

Review

This is a sensitive and touching picture book that helps young children understand dementia. Jessica Shepherd's experience in caring roles helped her write this positive story about Oscar and his beloved Grandma. The book includes a facts page which encourages children to talk about their feelings and changing relationships with loved ones.
