Georgie visits her Grandpa at the retirement home where he lives, but he doesn’t always remember who she is. Georgie sits with him as he sifts painstakingly through his remaining memories, finding points of commonality and companionship, until they come to a memory of her—and of newspaper hats, which Grandpa still remembers how to make! Together, they fold enough for all his friends.
Touching moments in this beautifully-illustrated book portray the difficulties and nuances of memory loss from a child’s perspective, and an uplifting ending leaves readers with hope. A poignant and age-appropriate story about a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease.
