A heartwarming tale of families, laughter, and how we can help a loved one with dementia live well.

Grandad doesn't remember things like he used to. But I love him as much as I always have. And I know that he loves me.

A young girl loves her grandpa so much! When they spend the day at the beach, she holds his hand as they go for a walk, and they build sand castles together. But sometimes, it’s difficult, because Grandpa has become forgetful. “Grandpa’s memories are like the tide,” Mommy explains. “Sometimes, they’re near and full of life. Other times, they’re distant and quiet.”

With thoughtful and reassuring text by Clare Helen Welsh, this lyrical picture book is a wonderful pick for children who have a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Perfect for sparking new discussions with your child, this book helps to name and describe the complex emotions we feel when someone we love is ill.

"A sensitive way to explain the difficult subject of dementia to young ones without upsetting them. An empathetic story full of sunny playful pictures that use the tide as an analogy to understanding memory loss... full of charm... ideal to share with the family or in the classroom."
—South Wales Evening Post
