Still My Grandma by Veroni Van den Abeele


Still My Grandma by Veroni Van den Abeele

The realities of Alzheimer's disease are gently introduced in this story for young readers about the special relationship between a girl and her grandmother. Camille and Grandma have sleepovers, bake cupcakes, giggle at old photographs, and go shopping together. But one day Grandma forgets Camille's name. Then she can't remember where to put her shoes. Camille learns that her grandma has Alzheimer's disease, which is what makes her do strange things. And even though Grandma has to move out of her house and rely on nurses to care for her, Camille finds creative ways to maintain their friendship. Sensitive illustrations emphasize the story's theme of unconditional love.
