Kiera loves spending time with her grandma. They play dress up. They paint their nails. They make cookies for picnics with Kiera's doll. But then Grandma starts to change. She starts misplacing items and forgetting how to do everyday tasks. Soon she has to move out of her home into a memory-care center for people with Alzheimer's. She starts calling Kiera by a different name. Then Kiera has an idea and finds a new way to enjoy time with her Grandma.
A Doll for Grandma poignantly and sensitively tells the story of a girl's empathy and kindness in the face of her grandmother's growing dementia. Perfect for children grappling with their changing relationship with a family member who has dementia or Alzheimer's disease. A Doll for Grandma also includes a parent page to encourage family discussion and reflection.
