Grandpa Monty is a bit confused: he puts the chicken in the washing machine, he gets towels mixed up with napkins and gloves with socks, and he’s always forgetting his grandson’s name. Luckily, his grandson loves him very much and is willing to risk getting into a little trouble to try to help him remember. Discussing Alzheimer’s and dementia, this story will help both children and parents cope with tough changes in a family. Offering up humor and the potent power of a smile, the book reminds readers of any age that when someone in the family is having trouble remembering things, the most valuable lesson is to not forget the importance of loving them.
