Overview

Young Becky describes the moving story of her family's discovery that their grandmother has Alzheimer disease.

"This is a gentle and sensitive story told from the perspective of children trying to overcome feelings of dislike and understand what is happening to their grandmother. The water-colour illustrations executed by the youthful artist are unsophisticated but have a strong feeling for the subject. It is a book for families to share, particularly with very young children." - Quill & Quire

"…an account that is distinguished by its honesty…A bonus is the accompanying art in ink and watercolours." - Montreal Gazette

"Jonah's frank telling of his story raises lots of points for families to talk about." - Kingston Whig-Standard

"Schein's story is touching and real. His loose line drawings with watercolour are exquisite, vibrating with life." - Charlottetown Evening Patriot

"A fine example of biographical writing…" - Canadian Materials
