When Grandma starts to become forgetful, Alice and her family create a box of memories to remind her of all the good times they have shared together.

Alice puts some pretty packets of seeds in the box, to remind Grandma of their happy times planting seeds and watching them grow into beautiful flowers. Her brother Harry puts some toy animals in the box, to remind Grandma of their fun trips to the zoo when the chimpanzees made them laugh. Grandpa puts a photo from their wedding day in the box, when Grandma looked so beautiful and happy. What a lot of wonderful memories in Grandma's box! What would you put in?

This beautifully-illustrated story helps to explain dementia to children aged 4 to 7 years in a gentle and engaging way, and prompts discussions about what children can do to help a grandparent living with dementia. It is an ideal starting point for family discussions and a book that dementia care professionals will want to recommend to the families they work with.
