It's about a little girl who were very close to her grandma. She has many good memories withe her grandma but one day she found her grandma looked strange. Grandma started to forgot lots of things even her name. Grandma got sick which was called Alzheimer's disease and she need to live in a health centre to be taken good care of with many old people like her. Although grandma forgot many things and was unable to take care of the little girl, the little girl still thought grandma was her best grandma and loved her so much.

It's a contemporary realistic fiction since the story told from the little girl's aspect was created by the author. The story was based on today's real live although the plots are not real. All the characters in this book are ordinary people like us.

1. The medium of this book are paints and inks.
2. The whole story is about love and understanding between the girl and her grandma which even made me cry.
3. Since Alzheimer's disease is a common disease among ole people in our daily lives, it's a good book to teach students how to think about this disease.

Comments on use:
1. It's a very great book to read aloud on reading class to teach them about love and understanding.
2. Teachers can also ask students about their memories of their grandparents.
