Green Kitty is a loving memoir about a grandmother visited by a grandchild and was written for children ages 8 to 12 to help explain Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. It is both entertaining and educational and has been called a book for all ages. Parents will enjoy reading it out loud to younger children. It is a series of stories within a story about a grandmother recently placed in an assisted living facility as she tells them to her grandchild. Their bond grows stronger through the visits despite the illness. The grandmother recalls old stories, mostly about family pets, after the child’s curiosity is piqued about a special animal. Helpful information about Alzheimer’s disease is deftly woven into the story. Green Kitty will capture the imagination of any child as it retells the true stories of the author’s family pets and farm animals. These are very amusing, earthy stories which will appeal to both parents and children. Reviews: “Green Kitty, takes me back to the delights of my pre-teen years as I listened to my grandparents’ talk of “the old days.” What I liked best about the “Green Kitty” is that it shows how, despite the illness of Alzheimer’s disease, a strong bond can continue within the family. The book fosters respect and dignity for an elder, highlighting elder value irrespective of Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia related losses. That, in itself, makes the book a good buy.” -Carol Bradley Bursack- Author, Speaker, Columnist, Blogger for Minding our Elders Alexandra Faer Bryan has a new children’s book, “Green Kitty.” It’s a must-read and has placed as a finalist for “Best Books 2011.” – Sandy Spencer, Free Alzheimer’s Support.
