Description - My Book about Brains, Change and Dementia by Lynda Moore
'Sometimes, a person's brain gets sick with a disease called dementia.'
What does dementia do to the brain? And how can we help if someone we know, like a parent or a grandparent, has the disease?
This book breaks down misconceptions about dementia and speaks directly to children aged under 5 about the realities of the disease, using age appropriate language in an engaging and informative way. It reassures parents of the value of open and honest conversation about the challenges raised by dementia and offers advice and support in the opening 'Guide for grown ups'. It includes a diverse audience of characters, to emphasise that ANY child can be impacted by dementia in their loved ones. Unlike traditional storybooks, the ending provides a question for the adult and child reading it to ponder together.
