Finding Granny: We never really lose the people we love…
By Kate Simpson (Author), Gwynneth Jones (Illustrator)
Such a great read for kids in extended family situations. As our lives get busier, grandparents are re-entering the nuclear family as alternate caregivers, and while it is an awesome addition to a child’s perspective and world view, age can go hand in hand with illness, disability, and major life changes.
Finding Granny does a wonderful job addressing such changes and providing a door to discussion on the topic of aging and limitations of the mind in a gentle and caring way. Beautiful writing, friendly typography, and almost whimsical illustrations create a safe and nurturing space for a story of growth through a difficult transition.
