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

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!
