Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
6.5 / 7.0

This is a fabulous book to read with little ones and help them understand aging and dementia. I love that the story shows ways we can help those relatives while explaining what’s happening, and there’s even a lot of helpful information in the back of the book so that you can learn more about dementia. Great book to help children with relatives going through this!

Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.0 / 7.0

This is a really niche book, but would be absolutely fantastic for a child coming to terms with a grandparent struggling with dimentia.
