Dementia does not discriminate. It is affecting many people nowadays and therefore it is necessary for children to be aware of the condition as it can affect their loved ones whether family or friends. The fictional character in this story invites children to learn about dementia from her perspective, in a light hearted way, helping them to understand the challenges it causes to day to day communication, memory and behaviour. It helps children to empathise and be more aware of the person behind the condition and also prevents misunderstanding. This book will encourage people to talk openly about this increasingly common condition. It is aimed for children, as well as adults whether family, friends or carers. It can also be used as a platform for discussion in a classroom situation.
