Really and Truly: A story about dementia
Author: Emile Rivard Illustrator: Anne-Claire Deslisle
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.

The Snail and the Whale
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
We adore Julia Donaldson books and this is a particular favourite of ours. I love the adventure plot and the very subtle environmental message captured on the pages with beautiful illustrations and a rhyming narrative.

Captain Cook
Author: Haydn Middleton Illustrator: Alan Marks
We thoroughly enjoyed learning about Captain Cook and his expeditions and how certain parts of the world are still named after him! My seven year old son read it to me and although he struggled with some words he enjoyed reading it!
