Helping children understand a family member’s illness can be incredibly difficult. This simple story about a young lion trying to help his aging grandfather, who is suffering from dementia, could be very helpful in starting a conversation with a young child who is struggling to understand what is happening to his or her own loved one. Touching, sad, and, most importantly, honest, the story is accompanied by illustrations that are soft in texture and color and complement the tone of the book beautifully. Ages 4-9.
