PreS-Gr 3The emphasis of this very simple explanation is to reassure young children that a grandparent with AD, despite changes in behavior, is still the same person. After a brief presentation of causes and symptoms, advice is given on how to deal with stresses within the familypreoccupation of parents, the grandparent moving in, or nursing-home placement. Each section is two pages long, with one page devoted to a full-color photograph showing older people, sometimes with children. Unfortunately, many of the pictures are dark and/or fuzzy. The conversational style text is in an easy-to-read large print. This book used in conjunction with picture books such as Mary Bahr's The Memory Box (Albert Whitman, 1992) or Vaunda Micheaux Nelson's Always Gramma (Putnam, 1988; o.p.) can help a parent explain Alzheimer's Disease.Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
