ith the same warmth, sensitivity, and depth that made her books What's Heaven? and What's Wrong with Timmy? so successful, bestselling author Maria Shriver delves into another difficult issue confronting families across the country-Alzheimer's disease, and the onset of memory loss in the aging. Through the inspiring story of young Kate and her grandpa, adults can teach and comfort children trying to understand what's happening to their elderly loved ones. Kate, the same young heroine of the New York Times bestsellers, What's Heaven? and What's Wrong With Timmy?, has always adored her grandpa's storytelling-but lately, he's repeating the same stories and asking the same questions again and again. One day, when he forgets Kate's name, she knows she must find out what's happening to grandpa. Her mother's patient explanations open Kate's eyes to what so many of the elderly must confront. Determined to support her grandfather, she explores ways to help him-and herself-cope with the changes. Together, they create a photo album, and Kate writes down the many stories of her grandpa's incredible life. The memories, and the bond they've forged, will be in their hearts forever. With special insight that derives from her own father's struggle with Alzheimer's, Maria Shriver offers a touching and optimistic story that encourages awareness, acceptance, and dialogue with family and friends. Her characters' positive solutions lead readers to discover something that everyone needs-a ray of hope during troubled times.

The aging of loved ones is a difficult transition that nearly all children must face. But when aging includes an illness like Alzheimer's, the challenge to a family is profound. In this poignant book, through the story of young Kate, Maria Shriver once again lends her honest, deeply personal insight and reassuring voice to a topic affecting millions of Americans. Grandpa has always been the best storyteller Kate has ever known, but lately, he seems different. He repeats himself, becomes easily frustrated, and then one day, he even forgets Kate's name. When her mother explains Grandpa's disease, Kate is overwhelmed. What will happen to him? How do her mom and grandma feel about it? Will others in her family get sick too? How will she explain it to her friends and younger siblings? With remarkable strength and creativity, Kate not only explores these questions, but also resolves to cherish her grandpa's life and memories. In doing so, she forges a bond between them that will remain forever in their hearts. As she's done so successfully in her other bestselling children's books, What's Heaven? and What's Wrong with Timmy?, Maria Shriver presents a truly touching story that inspires, guides, and educates-and encourages readers to open their eyes to the beauty and love that our elderly loved ones have to offer.
