Old Tub Grandfather is found lying under a radiator, and won't wake up until Tub Grandmother brings back his memories. The story uses toys to talk about a difficult topic, getting older. This may include sickness or losing memory. If a child has an elderly family member who may have Alzheimer's or some other disease that involves memory loss, this book may help children understand what they are faced with. ( )
