Grandpa Remembers Love
It's Thursday! Ten year old, Elaine and seven year old, Teddy's favorite day of the week. After school, they take the bus to their grandparent's house where Grandma Mary's amazing homemade treats are always waiting for them. This week though, Teddy's feeling confused and sad about going. Grandpa Jack hasn't been much fun lately. He always loved playing catch with Teddy but now he won't do it anymore. Why does his grandfather look the same but act so differently? Grandpa Remembers Love is an uplifting story about connecting with a grandparent who has dementia. With the help of their wise grandmother, Elaine and Teddy begin to understand that an important part of their grandfather's memory has not gone away. And, that focusing on what grandpa CAN do creates new opportunities for strengthening the love between them. Told with beautifully expressive illustrations, the children discover that by finding insightful ways to engage him--they truly can help grandpa remember love.
