My Little Grandmother Often Forgets
A child' s love for a grandmother with memory loss shines through in this deeply personal and lyrical tale from author Reeve Lindbergh. Sometimes Tom' s grandmother forgets the way home from the market, or that Tom' s name is Tom and not Roy. But Tom doesn' t mind. He loves to help his grandmother and just spend time with her. The special bond between a beloved grandmother affected by memory loss and her devoted grandson is described in Reeve Lindbergh' s most personal book for children, one that is based on her own and her son' s relationship with her mother in the last years of her life. Kathryn Brown' s watercolor illustrations tenderly capture the unique characters -- and the love that is universal.
