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.

A young girl deals with her feelings of guilt about her grandfather's Alzheimer's disease. She thinks he doesn't want to remember her because of something terrible she did or said. Parents need to realize children can feel this way. It is so important to talk about a child's feelings. Children often live in the present which is where grandfather's mind is now. She feels less helpless as the two relate to each other living for the happiness of each little moment. These good memories will give her strength as his condition gets worse although the book doesn't deal with the fact that he will get worse. The author leaves us in the present: not the past nor the future. The ending has a childlike sweetness and hopefulness. This basis for strength brings to mind Michael Reagan's statements that he became recognized by Ronald Reagan just as a man who always gave him a hug as the end drew near in their struggle with Alzheimer's disease. Relating on such a simple level for this adult toward his father was powerful. This little book is powerful in a gentle way which children appreciate. The book has English and Spanish on each page and a glossary to help readers of both languages.
