Really and Truly: A story about dementia
After struggling with a way to tell my two children about how their Grandad had suddenly got very ill and with dementia I found out about this book. I read the story to both boys and instantly they knew this was what was wrong with Grandad. It starts with a look back at how Grandad used to make up stories and play and then one day he lost his smile, appetite, zest for life etc. It makes the boy in the book think of how to bring Grandad's smile back alongside thinking up his own adventure stories. The story and illustrations are just perfect and it made answering all the questions at the end much easier.
