A story for children dealing with a family member or friend that has Alzheimers, coming to terms with the changes that effect the relationship between the two. It is about the importance of keeping memories sacred, and for always being open to making new memories. Some memories are ok to let go of. Some memories are based around events of the war. For children around 8-12? ( )

A good story that highlights the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren and how these different generations can communicate effectively as they tend to be more patient with each other. This is about a 10 year old girl Hannah who adores her Grandad. The trouble is, Grandad has Alzheimer's and he's always forgetting things. He keeps trying to tell Hannah a story about a whale, and it seems really important, but it's all jumbled up. Then Grandad has a stroke and he can't remember anything, not even Hannah. It's like he's lost inside himself. Determined to get Grandad back, Hannah sets out to make a film that will remind him of his life - and in so doing, starts to piece together an extraordinary story about a whale that connects Grandad's childhood to her own. An enjoyable quick read. ( )
