Criticas
K-Gr 3-In this tale of loss and recovery, a girl's grandfather has Alzheimer's disease. At first, the child struggles alone with the mystery of her grandfather's vanishing memory. She wonders if any of her past behavior could have caused the problem. Finally, she asks her mother, who explains the grandfather's condition and together the two of them come up with a solution. The granddaughter becomes her grandfather's memory, and the two enjoy spending time together reconstructing their shared history. Despite the saccharine ending, the book does model the importance of asking an adult for help in tackling life's large problems. Yunker's brightly colored illustrations bring the little girl and her family to life. A useful choice for bookstores and libraries.
