Overview

Meow! Meow! Kitten in a drawer.
Woof! Woof! Dogs, and people in trees.
Bat Attack! Cows do, too!
Grandma's magical and heartwarming memories come to life in this book of true animal stories for children that will both entertain and help them understand Grandma's memory problems.

Green Kitty has won two awards; it placed as a finalist in the "2012 International Book Awards" contest in the category of children�s fiction and in the USA Book News �Best Books 2011� contest. Filled with true, laugh-out-loud animal antics, Green Kitty will please any child who loves their pets. Green Kitty Written for children ages 8 to 12 to help explain Alzheimer�s disease and dementia, it is both entertaining and educational.� Parents will enjoy reading it out loud to younger children.

It is a story about a grandmother recently placed in an assisted living facility being visited by her grandchild.� Their bond grows stronger through the visits despite the illness.� The grandmother recalls old stories, mostly about family pets, after the child�s curiosity is piqued about a special animal.� Helpful information about Alzheimer�s disease is deftly woven into the story.

Green Kitty will capture the imagination of any child as it retells the true stories of the author�s family pets and farm animals.� These are very amusing, earthy stories which will appeal to both parents and children.

�Green Kitty, takes me back to the delights of my pre-teen years as I listened to my grandparents� talk of �the old days."�What I liked best about the �Green Kitty� is that it shows how, despite the illness of Alzheimer�s disease, a strong bond can continue within the family. The book fosters respect and dignity for an elder, highlighting elder value irrespective of Alzheimer's disease and Dementia related losses. That, in itself, makes the book a good buy."

The age group �Green Kitty� was developed for is eight to twelve-year-olds, which is one reason I decided to read the book. On ouralzheimers.com, we�ve reviewed several picture books to help young children cope with a grandparent�s dementia. This is the first book I�ve been exposed to for a somewhat older age group. What I liked best about the �Green Kitty� is that it shows how, despite the illness of Alzheimer�s disease, a...

Explaining to any child that their grandparent is suffering from Alzheimer's is such a difficult task, but very necessary. I'm extremely glad this book was written. Hiding the truth from them on why their loved Grandpa or Grandma is behaving differently will not address the child's worries. Sit them down and talk with them, read this book to them. Children are smarter and more durable than most people give them credit for. I'm sure they realize that a problem already exist.

It was an encounter with an elderly woman and her granddaughter that inspired Alexandra F. Bryan, a native of Riverdale, to write a children�s book, called �Green Kitty.� The book offers suggestions and information to children, who are dealing with grandparents suffering from dementia, or Alzheimer�s disease.
