Book Review: Grandma

From the Book Jacket: Oscar loves Grandma, and their time together is always lots of fun. As she becomes less able to take care of herself, she has to go into a nursing home. 

More and more children are encountering dementia and its effects on their families. This touching story, told in Oscar's own words, is a positive and practical tale about the experience. The factual page about dementia helps children talk about their feelings and find new ways to enjoy the changing relationship. 

Why It's On My Bookshelf: When there is change in a family kids need information. Grandma provides the reassurance children might be looking for in a situation that feels uncertain. If they are not told the reasons about a change - they will fill the holes on their own. They need to be in the loop and this is the perfect book to help do that.
