'When I See Grandma' is unique, positive and sensitive in its presentation of ageing and death. I love the way the story is told from the young grand-daughter's viewpoint, drawing parallels between her and her grandmother's life. The text and illustrations gently lead the child to the inevitability of saying good bye to the grandmother. Highly recommended for families dealing with ageing parents. Beware, the book may bring a tear to your eye.
This beautifully illustrated, hard cover children's book is a wonderful tool for families to use in educating their children about those who are terminally ill or those who are in their final years. The story is very simply told, and it clearly illustrates how young children can know, encourage and delight their elderly relatives, even when they are incapacitated. It is a story that helps young children to understand that old people were once young too.
