    2. A sweet book dealing with a topic that not all children will be immediately familiar with therefore useful on several levels The story itself is demure and undemanding, flowing gently from start to finish with plenty of repetitive phraseology that kids find so alluring and comforting I adore Delisle s illustrations most especially for their colourful appeal, gentle sensitivity and extraordinarily cute line drawings which provide extra cheek and visual exploration Accessing straying elderly minds [...]


    3. This is a sweet little story about a child relating to his grandparent living with dementia through storytelling, and, remembering what my literature professor extraordinaire Terry Flaherty told me, that the general purpose of children s books is to provide children with ideas, information, resources, and stories to give them hope Here s the thing, beloveds hope isn t always possible or helpful There is a lot of hope in this book, but that might be crushing for the grandchild whose grandparent i [...]

Charlie and his grandfather share a love of imaginative stories that will suit any occassion As Charlie and his grandfather both get older, a disease takes away Grandpa s stories and smile, but the gift of appreciating a good story never truly goes away Really and truly Sweet and necessary, this book is an excellent addition to any collection about aging and Altzheimer s disease The illustrations are fine and small, and as such, the book is much better suited for a one on one storytime and less [...]

This book, really and truly just made me tear up a little My own grandfather is showing the first signs of old age dementia and this book really just touched my heart It also changed my perspective a bit Kids have a wonderful power in the face of things and this really showed in Charlie s solution to acknowledging and working around the disease in his own way Very powerful Thank you milie Rivard.


    11. A little boy remembers all the stories his grandpa used to tell him and uses those stories to help his grandfather remember as he battles dementia A realistic story centered on a bright boy who turns a negative into a positive Well written with imaginative illustrations This is the perfect story for a child who is struggling to make sense of this unfortunate reality.


    12. Terrific book, Charlie s grandfather is suffering from Alzheimer s disease Charlie helps his grandfather by sharing the stories his grandfather told him when he was little.Recommended for late primary grades not the younger Blue Spruce audience


    13. A beautiful heartwarming story about how the innocence of a child can spark joy and comfort in one that is suffering with what appears to be Alzheimer s disease You should read this book really and truly you should


    14. Sad, but also hopeful story about a boy who s grandfather develops Alzheimers The boy can make his grandfather smile by retelling stories grandpa told to him when he was younger A little on the sappy side, but I can imagine it would be a great choice for a family in a similar situation.
