My Silly Granny
My Silly Granny is a heartwarming story of a little girl known as Sweetheart and her dear Granny who has dementia. On a visit, Granny explains to Sweetheart how a few simple acts of kindness can tap into her youthful spirit and help them both navigate the day with love and positivity. Her gentle, innocent voice explains how simple pleasures like laughing and singing can keep her in the present and what it's like when she begins to lose track of things.
This book was written to provide some insight into how people with dementia behave in hopes of reducing children's anxiety about their elderly relatives who may sometimes forget important things or act in strange ways.
