After her son, a young man with Down syndrome, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's, Sherri Henderson wrote a short story to explain to him and his friends what this diagnosis meant, what to expect, and what it meant to them. After being encouraged by doctors to make the story available to all, Sherri worked with an illustrator and this book is the result of their work.
Although originally written to help her son, this well written, easy to understand and beautifully illustrated book can help others, especially young family members, better empathize with a loved one who is suffering from dementia.
it is a clear explanation for people of all ages - even those of us who think we understand this disease because we know the medical facts; this goes beyond the facts of the body and brings home the facts of the heart.
This book is great for all ages in explaining what happens when a person has dementia. I would recommend it for care givers and their families everywhere.
