孩子们也在看着, 学着... ...
This book is written from the viewpoint of a little girl in a family who runs a noodle shop. Due to certain reasons, her father has been separated from his mother since he was a child, and grandma has been staying at the countryside all these years. One day, grandma takes a one-way taxi trip to the noodle shop, and their lives are changed forever.
There are many things the little girl doesn't understand... Why is grandma here? Why does grandma go around looking for things to pick up? Why can't grandma control her bowels and poop in her pants? Why must she dirty the area next to the mattress? How disgusting! Grandma put the fish sauce in the clothes cupboard again, and it stinks! Why does grandma remove her clothes?
还是不行... ... 因为是妈妈。奶奶是爸爸的妈妈啊！
This title is written and illustrated by 李惠兰 and translated from Korean. This is actually a true story based on her childhood. In the writer bio, the author shares that her dad grew up without a mother's love, but when her grandma had Alzheimer's, her parents never stopped loving and taking care of grandma.
In stories we are able to put ourselves in the shoes of others. I highly recommend this title as a really gentle way to get the kids thinking about family issues and Alzheimer's Disease.
Suitable for ages 3-12
