“This is a very helpful resource
designed to help children better understand why someone they love is changing
and seems so different. Petra Boh has done an excellent job of comparing the
normal role and relationship of a special Grandma with what might be a new possibility
after significant symptoms have started to appear. The illustrator, Andreja
Karba, has done terrific work creating a mix of scenes that have action in
them, while also highlighting some of the objects or emotions that could be
identified by children. This is so needed by families around the world who are
coping with these very real situations.” – Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA,

“In Granny Mary Thinks Differently we are given the opportunity to see a woman with dementia through the eyes of her granddaughter, Anna. A strong message throughout is the power of love to maintain our humanity. As her granddaughter sees changes in her grandmother, the little girl also learns how to adapt to these changes so that she can maintain their positive and loving relationship. This is a powerful and important lesson to learn, for Anna and for all of us.”
