Item description for Still My Grandma (Eerdmans Books For Young Readers) by Veronique Van Den Abeele & Claude DuBois...

Camille and her grandmother share a special bond, but when she learns that Grandma has Alzheimer's Disease, Camille finds creative ways to continue their special traditions.

Publishers Description

Camille and her grandma have a special friendship. They have sleepovers, bake chocolate cupcakes together, go out shopping, and giggle at old photographs. But one day Grandma forgets Camille's name. Then she can't remember where to put her shoes.

Camille learns that her grandma is sick, but ???not the kind where you cough and blow your nose.??? Grandma has Alzheimer's disease, which is what makes her do strange things. And even though Grandma has to move out of her house and rely on nurses to care for her, Camille finds a way to continue their special traditions.

With charming, sensitive illustrations, this story gently introduces young readers to the realities of Alzheimer's disease, and reminds them that love is more powerful than any illness can be.

Reviews - What do customers think about Still My Grandma?

for a child to read  Jun 11, 2009
It is okay but not what I had thought it was..I am in a reading program for my church and need adult books
Sensitive and thoughtful treatment of the subject of Alzheimer's  May 28, 2009
I got this book at the library thinking it was about a girl's relationship with her grandmother. As I read it to her, I realized that the book deals with the progression of her grandmother's Alzheimer's disease. I am not one to cry easily, but this book really moved me to tears. It is extremely sensitive and thoughtful with how the parents explain the disease to their daughter and the things that they help her to do to maintain a relationship with her and to help the grandmother maintain her dignity.
grandmothers need love too  Dec 12, 2008
this book is recommended for the children at my church. Almost all of the children have grandparents in the church and some are already facing this problem. It was a lovely book.
poignant view of alzheimer's  Feb 11, 2008
My daughter's school librarian sent this book home when I asked for a book to help my daughter understand the permanence of this condition. The book was wonderful - we were able to laugh (grandma puts her shoes in the fridge) and even when the grandma moved to a nursing home, the story was not scary. The focus was on loving grandma just the way she was and helping grandma feel loved, even if she didn't remember.
