When I see Grandma by Debra Tidball
Published by Wombat Books
When a little girl and her baby brother go to visit their Grandma, not only do they help to brighten Grandma’s dreams, but they also bring joy to the other residents at the aged care hospital.
My son and I read this book together. Not only was it a beautiful story of life, love and what happens when people get old, but it also opened the doors for us to talk about his great Grandma, who we used to visit in hospital, and hopefully helped to brighten her dreams as the children did in this story. Written from the point of view of the little girl, it truly is a beautiful book that children can relate to, understand and enjoy while also opening the lines of communication to help talk about your own family, memories and to help bring a smile from sadness. I loved it.
All the royalties from this book also go to the ‘Hazel Hawke Alzheimer’s Research and Care Fund.
