Why does granny forget things?
A trip to the brain
In this story my little niece, along with her little cousin, a cat and a dog undertake a wonderful trip to their grandmother's brain to understand what happens there.
There they meet Mr. Hippocampus and see the neutron cells up close. It is a beautiful story where children learn that love, patience, and empathy are what their grandparents with cognitive problems need most.
This book also contains a guide that can be very useful for parents and guardians when talking to young children and adolescents about dementia.
The children's book has been awarded the Caligrama talent seal.
