* Reviews *

NetGalley -- Good book for the 6 and under crowd to explain Alzheimer's and dementia in the older adults in their families. Simple sentences recount the little things Grandpa forgets, such as that he's eaten, where the coffee is, etc. But then ends with things he remembers: singing, smelling flowers, and holding his granddaughter's hand. Sweet story with expressive illustrations. -- NetGalley -- Grandpa Forgets was a really touching story about a young girl's grandfather who forgets some things, but remembers what's most important to her. This would be great for any child dealing with a relative with memory loss.
