"This tender, sweet story with endearing illustrations will fill a niche."
Kirkus Reviews "Lending a dreamy quality of wonderful pictorial memories surrounded by sweeping strokes of gentle whites, yellows, and pinks. . . . This is a gentle, effective, albeit slightly simplified tale of this increasingly common disease."
School Library Journal "The book illustrates the capacity for love and understanding that makes a very difficult situation bearable."
Austin American-Statesman "For younger readers, finding simple ways to convey complex challenges is the trick. And books designed to inform the wee set about aging or death can easily turn saccharine or, worse, pedantic. Veronique Van den Abeele's Still My Grandma escapes both of these traps in its explanations of Alzheimer's disease."
