Always My Grandpa: A Story for Children about Alzheimer’s Disease

Author: Linda Scaco Illustrated by: Nicole Wong

Always My Grandpa - A Story for Children about Alzheimers DiseaseIn this story, Daniel and his mom spend every summer with his Grandpa staying at a cottage by the sea. Daniel loves these summer visits: playing baseball, walking on the beach, watching the sunset, and hearing Grandpa’s stories of his fishing boat. As the summer passes, Grandpa begins to change. Daniel learns that since Grandpa has Alzheimer’s disease, he will have trouble remembering all the things that belong to him—his clothes, his words, his memories—and eventually, his own grandson.

Using gentle narration, easy-to-understand explanations and lovely illustrations, this book explains Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects children, and their families. Notes for parents to help children understand their grandparent’s condition are included.

This book is listed as being suitable for children aged five and upwards.
