Join in Annie’s journey of discovering that one of her favourite people – her loving grandmother – has Alzheimer’s disease. As she learns what this means, Annie finds her own way of adapting and helping her grandma.
Accompanied by vibrant illustrations, this touching story gently explores a child’s understanding and acceptance of the changes caused by Alzheimer’s disease, while showing how families can support their loved ones living with dementia.
