Product Description

The aging of loved ones is a difficult transition that nearly all children must face. But when aging includes and illness like Alzheimer's, the challenge to a family is profound. In this poignant book, through the story of young Kat, Maria Shriver lends her honest, deeply person insight and reassuring voice to a topic affecting millions of Americans. She presents a truly touching story that inspires, guides and educates--and encourages readers to open their eyes to the beauty and love that our elderly loved ones have to offer.

Grandpa has always been the best storyteller Kate has ever known, but lately, he seems different. He repeats himself, becomes easily frustrated, and then one day, he even forgets Kate's name. When her mother explains Grandpa's disease, Kate is overwhelmed. What will happen to hem? How do her mom and Grandma feel about it? Will others in her family get sick too? How will she explain it to her friends and younger siblings? With remarkable strength and creativity, Kat not only explores the questions, but also resolves to cherish her grandpa's life and memories. In doing so, she forges a bond between them that will remain forever in their hearts. Recommended for children of all ages.

Publisher's Description

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.
