All grannies are different. Sophie's nana bakes sponge cakes. Michael's grandma wears lipstick as bright as a clown's nose. Claire's oma wears wooden shoes and used to live in Holland. Raffe's nonna delivers flowers. Charlie's grandmother, however, is more different than most. All day long she stares out the window and rocks in time with the breeze, because she can't remember who she is. But that's all right, because Charlie remembers who she is. With the incidence of Alzheimer's disease on the rise, this title helps young readers and their parents cope with an often-frightening disease, and shows the love and complete acceptance that only a child can give.

A good book to introduce the topic of difference to children - particularly if they are experiencing a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer's.
